dreams

A journey.

March 22, 2012

Two and a half years ago my marriage imploded. Little by little I move toward a new life, a life which once again fits me and incorporates my dreams. Two and a half years ago, I had my dream life. I had found a partner who shared some of my most important dreams, and we [...]

Fly like the wind, Bullseye

November 13, 2011

So, in a fit of spontaneity, I agreed to run a half-marathon with my niece, Olivia. Take note, that although I was quite the long-distance runner in high school, uh, I haven’t done much running for decades. I will ask you to also note, that I was recently diagnosed with fibromyalgia, and I don’t have [...]

What is it with 50-year-old travel trailers?

April 25, 2011

So I’ve been asking myself, “What is it about vintage travel trailers that so many people find so compelling?” So often when I talk about my trailer project, people respond as if I am writing a novel or something—like there is all this romance and adventure infused in old aluminum trailers. Now, I’m not complaining [...]

I love my woods

October 25, 2010

I don’t know how I could forget, but I did. I forgot how much I enjoy walking through my woods. Any woods, actually, but right now especially my woods. Funny. Somehow in the last two months I had not gotten up to my 30-acre woods, not until just two weeks ago. Getting “NO HUNTING” signs [...]

Obviously I Am Not in Charge

September 20, 2010

Things are not going according to plan. Not that there was much of a plan, but there were some overarching goals. And so far I am far from them. In fact, I just might be falling backwards. One main point of this whole move to the middle of nowhere was to regain my connection to [...]

Me Ow

August 5, 2010

Last night I dreamed of a big cat. Well, it was a kitten of a big cat, so it was a big kitten, on its way to becoming a big cat. But it was striped, in golden colors, so it was not the kind of big cat that inhabit my 31.36-acre wood. Those cats are [...]

Sandman, Please Come A-Knockin’

July 19, 2010

Something I’ve not been good at saving is my dreams, my sleep-time meanderings. I used to remember my dreams quite easily, but quite awhile ago they began to elude me once I woke. Perhaps it was part of aging, I don’t know. But this weird thing happened about a month ago. I was having a [...]

Gold at the End of the Rainbow

May 20, 2010

Yesterday there was a huge rainbow in the early evening sky. David and I saw it from my window; he explained that it was made up of particles and smog. I argued that rainbows are what happen when angels have orgasms. Later, in my sleep, I dreamed that the rainbow had come closer and closer [...]

The Places I Can Go When I Don’t Know Any Better

May 17, 2010

I just had an amazing dream. I was invited to be in a high-wire bicycle act. The performer who was training me was adament that I would do just fine–but there was no training per se, just putting me on the bicycle and setting me off onto the wire. At first, and oddly, I was [...]
