Daily Manna The Sun's Day

Empowered Word: Amuse. (Although I am NOT amused. Not in the slightest.) A, as in one, but not any particular one, in a group or class, such as a dog, a house, a frustration; muse, as in any goddess presiding over a particular art. 

When I awoke this morning I was inspired. My muses had definitely visited me while I slept. I had a dream that my favorite duo (Show of Hands) were performing a song, and I could remember the song. I remembered the start, the rhythm, the melody, everything. I made quick notes so that I could start to actually compose this. And this is big, because I've not written anything, nor have I really played my guitar much since my Medicine Elder died over five years ago. However, now, when I try to recall what was there, all I get is something that sounds like a bad cross between Kelly Clarkson and Harry Nilsson. Frustrated much?

I also dreamed a great story. I remember awakening at 7:38 and making a few scribbles. This was a crossover story from soap opera type relationships into metaphysical situations. I remember thinking that it had substance, it had plot, it had great characters, and it wouldn't be cheesy like Dark Shadows (don't get me wrong, cheesy is exactly why I love Dark Shadows -- that,and for the time period it was way ahead of its time). But can I make head or tail (tale!) of the notes I scrawled? Can I hellaslike.

And I'm doubly frustrated because I teach people how to recall their dreams and work with them! "'Physician, heal thyself," comes way too easily to mind...

Knitting: I'm alternating between hats I have to make and gift bags I want to make. The gift bags are taking on a life of their own. I wonder how to submit the patterns for consideration to places like Annie's Attic, American school of Needlework, or Leisure Arts? I knew how to do all of this in the United Kingdom, but as I very quickly discovered when trying to break into the American market, it's a whole different ballgame. I sold my work very easily in the UK. I've yet to score over here, in any genre (although I did have a piece published in The Blessed Bee, in their very last issue. Kiss of death?).

Weather: Dull Autumn day, but still quite warm. No laundry hanging out.

Cooking, Making, and Baking: I haven't quite decided yet, but you can bet it will be comfort food!

"Physican, give yourself a break and stop trying to force it" is probably closer to the mark. ;)

They're there, you know they're there, but it may not be time yet for either one of these creations to be born yet. You haven't lost them, they're just still incubating. Give them, and yourself, some time. You'll have them soon enough.

Force It
I write great stuff in my dreams. Maybe the dreamtime is where they need to be for them to do their work. Maybe doing this wonderful stuff in the dreamtime, and then forgetting it when I awaken, is like downloading an upgrade to a computer system; all makes everything run smoother, whether we recall the info or not!

Re: Force It
That's entirely possible. It's also possible that our dreams show us what we're capable of to give us encouragement to keep walking the path we're on.

Comfort Foods
Carbs!!!!

Usually mac N cheese (home made), mashed potatoes or fries (home made) rice, toast (from home made bread) and peanut butter... and when I'm 'really' out there, I make fudge. I make the best fudge in Illinois (ask ysabetwordsmith). Of course, the thing with the fudge is it is no fun unless I've someone with whom to share it -- wanna come by for tea?
