Dream: She Takes Off Her Sandals

(Night of September 23, 2005)

I dreamed that I both was and was watching a Chinese man fighting another Chinese man with a staff. It was a weird-looking weapon, made of two curved lengths of wood which snapped together to form the weapon. Put together, the thing looked like a long, narrow oval with straight lengths of wood jutting out where on either end, where the arcs met.

I was fighting this man for the sake of a woman who I valued and respected deeply. At some point during the combat I was mortally wounded, and I began falling to the floor. Before I died, I was determined to explain to my opponent why I had fought so hard for this woman, and I told him, "She takes off her sandals and dances in the sunlight."

The 'taking off her sandals' was a metaphor for the fact that the woman had traveled (or gone through much travail) and had reached her destination (or perhaps had attained the wisdom she had been seeking). I felt very spiritually uplifted by this.

Very interesting and beautiful dream! I really like that picture of her taking off her sandals and dancing in the sunlight. She sounds quite worth fighting for.

Zeonn--Hey, good to see you!

This morning, I lay in bed telling myself, "I have to remember this drream." Usually, when I remember phrases from dreams, they don't make any sense when I wake up. I was determined not to lose the meaning of this one.

Truth and beauty are definitely things worth fighting for. That's what I think she was in the dream.

So beautiful! Good one to remember!

And Now For Something Completely Different...

Yes, this is entirely unrelated to your post, but I'm glad to see y'all come out the other side of Rita relatively unscathed.

I know what you mean about sleeping through it. I slept through Ivan, can you believe that? Anyway, good to know you're all safe and sound!

Re: And Now For Something Completely Different...

Hi, Dave!

I still can't believe I slept through it. I figured there'd be nasty thunderstorms and lots of lightning, etc. But all we got was wind and some rain. Amazing. I'm very grateful, though. Our house is old, and I was dreading the thought of post-hurricane repair costs.

You slept through Ivan? Man, you must have been tired, that night!
