Try as I may I can not escape unpleasant realities for they always pop up in my dreamworld ( which tends to be an extremely rich, if not a disturbing place).
i have a younger sister who I love dearly, this sister has suffered from mental illness since her teenage years. Life has not been kind to my sister, she suffers the pain of her illness and tremendous self doubt. Once again she has checked herself into the hospital; as she pointed out to me , she has lived with mental illness for 27 years. Understandably she sounded desperate and overwrought, and although usually tremendously resilient , this time I had terrible fears.
So much so they entered my dreamworld.
In this dream my sister ask me to illustrate her situation, she directs a small painting: it is dark, stormy and insufferable, she is on a large terrible thorny tree, fighting against the storm and gravity. The tree is festooned with acorn caps (not an acorn -Lifeforce- Are there 27 acorn caps ?
One for each lost year?
In this dream she asks me to include a small acorn bursting forth as a seedling . In this detail I hold optimism that my sister will be alright.
Hoping that faith is well founded.
The following are some of the sketches I made today:
Wishing my sister strength.
Until next time, take care and be well,
