As I sit here thinking about how people have said they like when I've written a little about my images recently, I realize why I don't do it often. I find myself finishing these pages rather late in the day. It's now reading 2:37 a.m. on my desk top clock, and verbal brain function isn't at it's peak, but I'll give it a try!
Yesterday, or was it the day before yesterday now, I was reading Renee's post on dream interpretations for images starting with the letter P, at Circling My Head. When I came to Palm: Suggests that you hold all the knowledge you need in your own hands. The palm is a symbol of openness and a generous nature; a reminder for you to reach and utilize your full potential. Suddenly I flashed on a fragment of my dream from the night before, where I was staring into my own palm. I chalked it up to having a friend who is taking a series of palm reading classes (50 weeks!) and has been practicing on me, and the day before she had told me about something she learned regarding a characteristic in my hands. My palms are pretty solidly covered with a fine web of lines - like a screen covers my whole hand. She said she'd never seen that many lines, and wondered what it might mean, so she asked her teacher about it. The teacher interpreted it by saying I was a memory keeper, and that I am very sensitive and held by and to these memories... if you knew me well, you'd know just how much that fits.
Anyway, I'm also currently reading a novel where the main character is a psychic/palm reader/tarot card reader, so I figured not a surprise that the palm popped into my dream world. I love Renee's interpretation of this dream imagery though, and like to think that's what's going on! When something recurs again and again, visiting in both waking and sleeping hours I do give it a bit more thought - and so you see the palm images in the back ground of these pages.
The birds represent the goldfinches that have returned to our feeders! They aren't as vibrant as they get later in the summer, but they are a welcome sight as harbingers of the warmer days soon to come. The back ground design is all done with metallic golds and copper, but I'm not sure that shows up too well in these photos.
OKay, time to sign off - it's now 3:05 a.m. and time to see what imagery will visit me tonight...
