Fresh Living

I don’t know if it’s the change of season, but I’m having some amazing technicolor dreams these days.  Last night, I dreamed I was in yoga class, and I was really struggling in bridge pose (something that I do struggle with in real life).  I kept piling blankets under my hips to lift them higher and higher, until finally my teacher looked over and said, “Holly shouldn’t do this pose.”  I collapsed in relief off of the blankets, and lay quietly.  The room was drenched with light. 

Next, suddenly a woman appeared at my feet and started massaging my right foot with lotion.  In my dream-world, I understood that she felt bad I couldn’t get the benefits of bridge pose, so she was trying to offer me something instead.  But then she walked away, and I thought, “you forgot the other foot!”

Realizing that I was no longer relaxing, I suddenly was seized with the need to get up and do some weeding.  So out the door I went, into a stunningly sunny day, and started clearing weeds out of a planter that was on the sidewalk in front of a Dunkin’ Donuts….until my teacher, slightly annoyed, called me back in, saying it was time to rest.  I lay down, my hands covered in dirt……dream over.

What could this mean?  What strange dreams have you had lately?
