Native American red suede dreamcatcher from Santa Fe, New Mexico. Santa Fe Railroad advertisement from 1947 framed in a 19th-century French wooden frame, reminiscent of the "Tramp Art" frames popular in America. Originally, the photo of a French wedding party was in the frame.
Is there a dreamcatcher filtering out your bad dreams and temporary setbacks of your life? Or do you continue to move forward, determined to bring your dream(s) to fruition? Do you have faith in your dream(s), no matter what obstacles are placed in your path? After all, that's what faith is: the substance of things hoped for; the evidence of things not yet seen.
The dreamcatcher is in our dining room, not hanging over the bed, as tradition would have it. Because I believe waking dreams are the really important ones. As British explorer, adventurer and soldier T.E. Lawrence wrote in The Silver Pillars of Wisdom, "Those who dream by night in the dusty recesses of their minds wake in the day to find that all was vanity; but the dreamers of the day are dangerous men, for they may act their dream with open eyes, and make it possible.
What are you doing today, to bring your dream(s) just a little closer to reality?
