SHE WHO RUNS FROM VELVET CURTAINS

Been having a series of dreams in which I'm trying to escape someone from my past. My wise friend says it's a good sign, that my psyche is working it all out for me.

Couple nights ago the person led me towards a dense hanging of dark blue or dark purple, couldn't tell, velvet curtains. I waited until this person was well within their web, then I turned and ran the other way.

I e-mailed the dream to WF (Wise Friend) and she wrote back, "What a great dream! Love the velvet part, too. Speaks to how easy and seductive it would be to follow. But now it’s all about the web of curtains. Yes, RUN."

Just now, looking for a photo of velvet curtains I found this one - an ad from Amazon. Now they sell curtains? Velvet ones? I may just have to 1-Click me some curtains.

For practice.

Carrie, there is this GREAT book that is old, by Elsie Sechrist, I think published by the A.R.E called "Dreams, Your Magic Mirror." It was the most helpful to me when I was going through an intense dreaming period to help me understand my dreams. It's not one of those things that interprets them for you. I have not run across anythign like since.

Can't help wondering if that is some aspect of yourself.

You had a dream and you're not doing your "part of me thing?" What gives?

Makes me think of Scarlett O'Hara making a beautiful velvet gown from her velvet drapes. You sure Rhett Butler wasn't in that dream?

Oh, I think buying those velvet curtains would be cathartic. Go for it. And hang them right where you can stare at them all day and MOCK them. :))
