My garden of dreams.

The dream dictionary states:
Seeing a vegetable or fruit garden in your dream indicates that your hard work and diligence will pay off in the end. It is also symbolic of stability and inner growth. Seeing a flower garden in your dream, represents tranquility, comfort, love and domestic bliss. You need to be nurturing. Seeing sparse, weed-infested garden, suggests that you have neglected your spiritual needs. You are not on top of things.

Last night I dreamed someone had vandalized my garden, ripping out every bit of vegetation. Then they'd carved giant-sized footprints leading to the garden, as if to make it look like a monster had destroyed it. I was livid and immediately had two suspects in mind. One lives across the street and the other a thousand miles away. Because the footprints were so artistically crafted, I determined that The Spider hadn't created them, but suspected she'd been the one to rip out the plants. I began to realize it had been a two-person operation. Then I wondered why the dog hadn't alerted us to what was going on outside and I woke up.

It doesn't take a genius to translate this dream. In an earlier post, I'd compared my life now to my garden. I've been carefully tending to both, taking preventative measures against pests and other threats. Life is like a garden.

I dream - a lot, and in color (which I guess is rare). I don't know about you, but I would've awakened (woke?) from that dream really p.o.'d.

Aren't our minds the strangest things?

i'm a color dreamer, too. exclusively. mostly nightmares. sooo fun ...

i am going to postulate that the symbolization is the destruction of the old garden; and all the bad monsters that go with it. gonzo.

you'll need to start from scratch. forget about the old garden and spend some time mentally pouring over what you'd like to plant in this one.

And glad to see you and C have parted ways. I never really thought it would work. Not that I've got any right to judge, but, you know...

And congrats on the job thingyme even though it's not what you really want. But it's a start.
