Today I was reminded of a dream I had a lifetime ago. I was naked, bloodied, and at the bottom of a deep, wide pit in the earth. From above, dead and bloodied doves spiraled to the ground at my feet, littering the floor of this muddy hole. I couldn’t get out. It began to rain. I had no cover…so I sat down, hugged my knees and cried.
And then I woke up.
Such despair. Such loneliness. And yet it was so beautiful.
My ex-husband was a photographer and artist and I relayed the dream to him. He managed to clutch the vision from my subconscious and create an image for others to see. I wish I still had a copy of that picture. Alas, I don’t. And we’re not on good terms, so I cannot reach out and ask for it. I wonder if I have it saved someone on an old external hard drive…I’ll have to search.
But in times where I feel alone or despondent, I think of that vision. And although it never occurred while I slumbered, I like to think that someone came along and helped me out of that pit.
Which brings us to today’s quote:
“DON’T GIVE UP, YOU ARE NOT ALONE. There is always going to be others that will extend their hand out to you & will listen to understand your story. Do not be afraid to interact with others and have faith that someday it will all be ok because it will. Remember, nothing stays the same & every storm has its resolution.”
― Jesus Apolinaris
If you ever need a helping hand or someone to talk to, I’m always here for you. Just as I know you are for me.
