WEEDING

Had a dream last night that I was all dressed up, skirt, heels (more specifically, pink Barbie-like shoes), and was outside in all the neighbors' yards, plucking their weeds for them. I was fully sneaky as they really wanted their weeds in their yards, and would be mad if they saw me out there digging them up for them.

In the dream I was clear those were noxious weeds and needed to come out. Not only were they an eyesore to me, they were toxic to the neighborhood.

But.

They weren't my weeds.

I don't get to choose when it's time for for others to "weed."

Much as I want to.

Love the dream.

I especially love the shoes.

Your subconscious has a great sense of humor.

Love this! But, being a shoe fanatic, I have to ask ... what's the meaning of the pink Barbie shoes?

I just read an article today in Spirituality and Health magazine about the importance of dreams -- written by Thomas Merton, I think. Something about how we don't tend to our dreams often enough.

I love your metaphoric dreams.

What a great image...I'm trying to picture myself prancing around outside, dressed to the nines, darting around all Mission-Impossible-style, covertly weeding my neighbors' lawns. Only problem is I can't stop laughing at the mental picture long enough to analyze it. Good thing I have you to do that part for me. :)
