The Pool, The Snake & The Dog

Last night, I dreamed I was standing in my backyard with my late husband. There was a giant snake in the pool, and while he was talking to Animal Control, the snake moved toward me to strike. In the dream there was a white husky dog and the dog intervened. Suddenly, these images shattered into a million pieces.

I looked at the clock and it was 4:00 a.m.  

With nearby Napa Valley on fire, and my daughter, business partner, and best friend Debra in Los Angeles with the Santa Ana fire, and my younger daughter about to go into knee surgery, it’s no wonder I’m dreaming of snakes. 

I look up the meaning of these images in the darkness. Snakes signify fear, and huskies protection, my late husband in the distance is a common theme in dreams. 

As always, I say my prayers. I pray for all of the people affected by the fires and that my daughter’s surgery goes well. I ask that I am able to sleep until 7:30 when my alarm is set. 

Miraculously, I do go back to sleep. My eyes open as my alarm goes off.

Love and blessings to all.
