Beauty in the Ordinary

This is not about being brilliant, or extraordinary, it's not about wanting to be famous, or making headlines, or trying to impress...this about sharing a 'gift' each day with the world...to lift the spirit of people when they read this blog, to show them the beauty in the ordinary.
"And above all, watch with glittering eyes the whole world around you because the greatest secrets are always hidden in the most unlikely places. Those who don't believe in magic will never find it." Raold Dahl

The Meaning Of Dreams


"a most troubling dream last night.  We had gathered as a group of the usual suspects for a get-together and a dear, close friend showed me a meal she had prepped for us to share.  It was a skinned, stuffed rabbit, but somehow as can only happen in dreams, it was still alive.  The terror in the animals eyes as it lay there trembling is still sitting heavily on my chest this morning.  As I drink my coffee, I search for the meaning in this message of the night.  I have to believe something so vivid, so visceral carries importance.  My wise sister tells me that we are all of the characters in our dreams, so perhaps part of me is that helpless, terrified, fragile creature.  Food for thought."JP





thank you brown dress white spots for all the lovely pictures.

    1. Just a little bit John...perhaps it was reminder that I have to take better care of myself?

  2. It seems as if something was happening to the rabbit that was beyond both his, and your, control; but what it all means is beyond me. I wish you a sweeter dream for tonight.

    1. Not overly worried OGM. I know life weights heavily on my heart right now, so I think this is just my inner mind's way of dealing with it all.

  5. As long as it's not a recurring dream, I wouldn't worry too much. I hope you get a better night's sleep tonight--maybe you could try reading/watching something upbeat before bed? Good luck!

  8. There are many ways to interpret dreams but here's my five cents (briefly) . . .
    You have these components -
    Cooking
    Eyes
    Friend, (sounds female? not sure)
    Rabbit - an animal that is hurt
    Skin

    We can break the dream into three categories
    1. conventional interpretation
    2. psychological interpretation, which goes more fully into the likely significance for the dreamer
    3. spiritual interpretation

    Cooking
    1. preparing nourishment or to be satisfying a hunger, whether ours or another.
    May not be a physical hunger, but something more subtle.
    2. To be able to move forward in our lives we may need to blend certain parts of our existence in new and original ways in order to succeed. We may need to nurture a new ability.
    3.Cooking can symbolize creativity. There is a fable which tells how God baked the various ethnic races into being.

    Eyes
    Any dream to do with the eye is to do with observation and discrimination. It is indicative of enlightenment and wisdom, protection and stability. It has a connection with the power of light.

    Female friend:
    If a female friend appears in a woman's dream there can either be a concern about her in the dreamer's mind or she (the dreamer) needs to search for, and find, qualities belonging to the friend in her. A friend is often representative of an aspect of the dreamer's own personality but often one she has not yet fully understood.

    Rabbit - hurt
    When we dream of animals they usually represent an aspect of the personality which cannot be properly understood except on an instinctive level.
    A hurt animal - the dreamer may perceive a difficulty in facing life right now.
    Rabbits in dreams can mean one of two things, the obvious connection with fertility could be important or it could be that the trickster aspect of the personality could be coming to the fore.

    Skin
    Skin in a dream stands for our persona or the facade we create for others

    Now Sis you have to put it all together !
