dying in a dream part II

April 6, 2012

So, they say you can’t die in a dream.  Or, at least that’s the old wive’s tale that I always heard- you die in a dream, you die in real life.  But last night, I dreamt that I died and clearly I’m still here to tell the tale.  Also, this is the second time this has happened to me, so either I’m the luckiest person around or more information is needed.

I don’t remember the first time I died but last night’s is still fresh.  I  purposely allowed death to arrive.  I was on a ship, an old wooden one.  I was fully aware that it it was in present time, though.  I knew the ship was collapsing and I didn’t want to wait for it’s slow departure.  I understood that I was dreaming and that death wasn’t possible in dreaming.  So I leapt off the side and the water surrounded me.  And I thought something would happen, something other than death.  And then I breathed in and there was this feeling of everything being sucked out of me entirely and I knew that was my final breath.  And I woke up, heart racing, gasping.

So, research afterwards has led me to find that you can, in fact, die in a dream (duh).  And it is actually a catalyst for significant change in your life, deep, personal, inner change.  So, I’m glad I chose it.  I didn’t wait for that ship to sink- I leapt in and met change, scary in its uncertainty, head on.

We had our first large snowfall of the year.  The timing was much to the chagrin of school kids everywhere, ruining weekend plans with a Friday evening through mid-day Saturday fall.  But, on the plus side, it’s nice to be forced to slow down and stay inside sometimes.

Here are some recipes I’m craving this winter

Smoky Beef and Bacon Chili

Moroccan Beef Meatball Tagine

Scalloped Potatoes with Ham

Apple, Pecan and Blue Cheese Salad with Dried Cherries

Happy Eating!

One day I will have a room like this and the future kiddies will not be allowed in.

It is almost summer! So you know what that means, bathing suits. If you don’t have your “beach bod” there is still enough time to get your bag of bones in gear, like the people below. You gotta respect someone who can work out in a 3 piece suit.

cats vs. dogs

March 29, 2011

The question always comes up. Are you a dog or cat person?

I am a dog person.
