TOTALLY BECOMING A VEGETARIAN

That plan to sleep with one-eye open last night? Not a good plan. I feel today like someone that hovered over sleep and never actually landed, yet I had a nightmare, so must have touched-down briefly enough for THIS!

I was at the neighbor's house helping her get ready for Thanksgiving. She opened the oven door and there were two animal heads in there. She had put them in the oven ALIVE and they were being cooked to death! The head on the left was CRYING. I will resist putting this "on the body" because you'll be sick to your stomach all day, and I'm just not that selfish.

So, here we go:

I (part of me) was at the neighbor's (part of me) house (part of me) getting (part of me) ready (part of me) for Thanksgiving (part of me). She (part of me) opened (POM) the oven (POM) door (POM) and there were two (POM) animal (POM) heads (POM) in there. She (POM) put (POM) them (POM) in the oven (POM) alive (POM) and they (POM) were being (POM) cooked (POM) to death (POM). The head (POM) on the left (POM) was crying (POM).

There is a neigboring part of me that is giving thanks that doors are being opened. The left side of my brain (analytic) is dying and is crying over that death.

Key-rist!

GoodNESS, Carrie. This is a strange one. But I love your interpretation. Sounds spot on.

Try to close both eyes tonight, will you?

Very rich territory, very good sign. Your psyche is full of aliveness, intimate with awareness. Yes, eyes open. Eyes from the inside, open, seeing everything now.

Good news. Good news.

You might mention how you are a student at this Writing Life workshop in Sisters and how there is a good share of anxiety about this?? Another glorious teaching moment to reassure of the love and care that all students get when crossing our threshold of love (and not going back!!!) Just sayin'

Aren't you glad you learned the POM techinque. Otherwise you'd be left wondering why on earth you dream about crying, roasting animal heads.

POM didn't get it or rather AOM(all of me)......and besides I really love Thanksgiving AOM.

I think you've hit the motherload! Be grateful for it, shocking as it seems sometimes.

Either you're not drinking enough wine before bed, or you're drinking too much. In any case, much more of this and I'm thinking you'll need to switch to Valium...

Love.
