Dream of Ancient Ruins
October 19, 2016
Iíve been in a foreign country. It seems I am leaving, but I am somehow seeing or being shown pictures of some ancient buildings and structures which are made of a reddish stone and have very elaborately carved sculptures of Hindu panoramas. It seems as if they were carved in huge blocks and then moved into place.
They are very eroded, so itís hard to see the images precisely. Still, they are very interesting even though unclear, and I wish I had been able to see them in person before leaving.
Dream of a Gift from Deep Ocean

Sounds of a party. Iím feeling left out.
I have a paper bag in which I have token symbolic gifts for people. I go around handing them out......
A young girl wonders if there is a gift for her. I may have run out, but I reach into the bag and pull out one for her. It is a vertebra which has been underwater for a long time and is encrusted with barnacles like little jewels.
