If Wishes Were Horses
I just want to say a few things today – keep it simple. My life is too complex right now and I am preparing my income taxes, which are very difficult for me to do; I must do them right.
Last night I had a dream that reoccurred numerous times. I was meticulously folding colored paper into a mask of a horse face. The dream was full of my hands working and the stunning beauty that the paper was taking on in forming the different sections of the face. The horse was a reddish brown color with a very dark brown, almost black, mane and there was a small white oval shape between the eyes and the darkening section of the mussel.
I was amazed at how the curve of the nostrils blended well as I tried and then discovered how to fold the paper to get the visual results I wanted.
My mask was deemed a masterpiece and found to be a highly prized sculpture – original and yet soft.
IT Girl and one of my friends are both exquisite at paper folding art. My neighbor did a whole manger scene for her church one Christmas that just took your breath away. IT Girl uses more color, but can make the paper perform in creative ways. Library Girl can also do some interesting things with paper, and we are all surprised by her gift wrapping creations.
I have thought of this dream all day and decided it was important that I remembered it so vividly. I think this is because I am quitting a medication that has ceased working for me and it is taking time to leave my system. Then I thought I should look up the symbolism of a horse in my book:
“A horse symbolizes strength, power, endurance, majesty, and virility. Riding a horse suggests one is in a powerful position.”
I started to think about horses in terms of how I am going to set goals for this next third of my life. Since my original bucket list is either completed or cast off right now I seem to be in a space of opportunity to create – something of strength, power, endurance, and majesty – alive. But what should I choose to do?
I vacuumed the whole house on this thought –
As I write this now, I am thinking the paper is simple and my hands are knowledgeable, whatever I decide it will endure majestically…
What do you think I should do and add to my bucket list?
Do you interpret the symbolism and dream in a different way?
Looking forward to your ideas and comments. Thank you.
Would so appreciate you using the share buttons and letting other folks in on what’s happening. Thank you
