Last night I had the weirdest dream. For some reason my husband had decided to seek a divorce. That should have devastated me, but the truth is, that's what was probably the weirdest part of the dream: my lack of intense emotion in response to the situation.
The only thing I can figure out now that I'm awake, is that since I've already suffered through the intense emotion of losing his physical presence through the ultimate separation of death, I had nothing left to give to a different, though potentionally more messy, separation.
I have to say, he did look fine, in the best physical shape I've ever seen for him. Maybe that's the message of my dream. He's lookin' good now? Maybe I have to work harder on my own spiritual and inner beauty to keep from being separated eventually? It's quite a puzzle.
Will I be able to translate any of this to my writing projects?
Do you ever have weird dreams? What is your typical response to them? Have you ever used what you learned from them in another facet of your life?
