Heart to Dream
I don't know about you but when I dream I see, smell, taste and feel as if it actually took place. Last night was no different although by the end of it I recognized a common theme had strung throughout the dream. While traveling through what seemed like a movie set of Harry Potter combined with Gone with the Wind. I know I know but it was a dream and dreams always make sense, right? Anyways; I moved from one place to another in all forms of transportation. I vividly recall boarding a train that said 'Heart Lines' on the side of the boxcar with this huge beautifully hand carved wooden heart on it with scroll work around the name. Then I saw that the tickets had hearts on them. After leaving the train I met up with some friends. Friends I haven't seen in years and years; way too many years. It was all so real, although the timeframe was more like the late twenties or early thirties and it took place in England ~ a place I've never been, but I sure was last night. My friends and I went shopping, strollng through some beautiful little shops. We passed some trees and without any mention of it I noticed a heart carved in one of the trunks. That was when I first noticed my friends locket hanging around her neck.
I still hadn't made the connection of the heart theme but it was becoming more evident to me that I was seeing several of them, one right after another. I next noticed them subtly hidden in the brown and gold uphostered tapestry hanging against the wall, in the jewelry cases where one would expect to see them, in clothing hanging on racks, on book covers. Hearts had even been woven within the linen tableclothes.
We stopped for tea and when it was served the waitress set a beautiful antique floral teapot before us ~ with a heart hidden in the flowers and then she set down a plate of complimentary cookies. Hearts!
I made no mention of this to my friends but by now I had recognized a definate theme being made very apparent to me. Just as I was about to share my discovery with them ~ I woke up! It was a beautiful dream but still somewhat mysterious!
