When we think of dolphins we do it with a smile, we think of highly intelligent creatures, adorable and friendly. But are they?
I dreamed I was in a wide river, a river in a rain forest during a bright and sunny day. I was surrounded by rive dolphins, but instead of calming swimming around me they were in a frenzy. I was trapped in a swimming frenzy among violent, aggressive mammals who were bigger than me. I can’t remember if I panicked but I remember drowning in greenish water and foam.
To see a dolphin in your dream symbolizes spiritual guidance, intellect, mental attributes and emotional trust. The dream is usually an inspirational one, encouraging you to utilize your mind to its capacity and move upward in life. Alternatively, it suggests that a line of communication has been established between the conscious and subconscious aspects of yourself. Dolphins represent your willingness and ability to explore and navigate through your emotions.
What if you were a newly bitten vampire?
What if you had to kill somebody and drink their blood?
What if you refused to kill and would be killed in response?
Well, I was a vampire and I had to kill somebody and drink their blood or I would have been killed myself. I walked in darkness through shadows, talked in whispers and spy from afar both humans and vampires.
To dream that you are a vampire signifies that you are sucking in the life energy of others for your own selfish benefit.
I sit and think about your red beard,
I think about the light reflecting on your red beard,
I think about what words I could write that would match your red beard,
All this I think and I come up with nothing.
Nothing at all.
Then I think of you,
And I think of me,
And I think about your laughter in bed,
All these are my thoughts but still . . .
Nothing about your red beard. Nothing at all.
Then I think about your lopsided smile,
And I think about you pouring me coffee in a Japanese cup,
And I think about eating carrots and celery from your plate,
And all these thoughts about food and drink but not about beard,
Nothing at all.
Nothing about your lovely, scratchy (yeah, sorry I didn’t tell you before) and oddly red beard.
The darkness follows the sorrow and the pain fills the emptiness within,
The emptiness that loves gives, the emptiness that loves creates,
The creation of a beating heart, a soul alight, a touch, a look, a moonlight beam.
Fleeting, ethereal, paranoid.
The pain soaks you, follows you, becomes your companion,
Endless companionship of emptiness and loneliness.
Such is love.
The room was different, I can’t not say in what sense, but it was different. Nonetheless it was the same room. The room, in my grandmother’s house that had been the guest room first then my aunt’s room. I was standing in front of a full-length mirror on the side of the door. I looked at myself and at my short hair, the style was so 70’s that I was surprised at myself. I was also wearing a wedding dress.
A wedding dress with very simple lines, it followed the contour of my body and ended on a small A-line from my thighs down – I’m not sure why this is important but it seemed to be. – The dress had a high collar and it was digging into my neck, so my (long dead) grandmother cut the collar out with a pair of scissors, the collar happened to be a separate piece altogether.
The wedding was celebrated at my grandmother’s house, in her garden and as I came out of the house I saw the groom standing outside. He looked sharp in a black suit, smiling and handsome. Around us in the garden were family members and friends but their faces were blurred.
I don’t remember the ceremony taking place but suddenly we were ready to leave for our honey moon. I called to him but he didn’t come, at least not in a timely fashion. When he finally came he wouldn’t talk to me, didn’t he hear me? My feeling of impotence was overwhelming, maybe too overwhelming for the situation but because of it I made a decision.
My husband was a non-responsive man, obviously my newly wed life wasn’t going as well as anticipated. I decided to get my bags, jump in my car and take my honeymoon trip by myself. Leaving my husband to ponder his lack of . . . response.
It was a highly satisfactory.
