"I didn't mean to take up all your sweet time,
I'll give it right back to you one of these days.
I said, I didn't mean to take up all your sweet time,
I'll give it right back one of these days.
And if I don't meet you no more in this world, 
then I'll meet you in the next one.
Don't be late" //

happy new year!

Masked Mermaid in Black by Salvador Dali, 1939

 

Dreams that take place underwater explore bringing into awareness what is unconscious...  Looking within yourself and exploring what goes on beneath the depths of your conscious self.  A hidden, secret growth or development that is occurring beyond the scope of your knowledge or understanding.  

 

Mermaids may symbolize love or the urge for intimacy arising from within.  The link between deep unconscious forces and the waking self.  The inner image or desire of womanhood or motherhood.  

 

Eggs may represent new life or the female ovum, respectively.  Purses may represent the female anatomy in this way.  Blood may also symbolize fertility.  Something wrapped in seaweed may show you something you hold dear, or could be something you are currently struggling with (an inner tangle of emotion or feeling).  A shark may symbolize the deepest unknown aspects of your subconscious, or alternatively, something you fear.  

 

(keep dreaming)

I hold much gratitude for these experiences.  All of them-- every moment of suffering, every iota of manipulation, every tear I shed for a lost cause-- and at the same time, I'm trying not to be completely hateful about the people and the places that brought me here-- because they too, had a part in it.  That is an important, albeit, difficult truth I must acknowledge to myself foremost before I proceed.     

And with this in mind, I'm attempting to put it behind me in the only way I know how.  Starting over again-- a new beginning entirely.  I am not afraid-- I was born to do this.  I'll delight to burn it all down; I'll rise once again from the ashes.
 
(Wish me luck).

'Pretty as a wedding day / for what I wouldn't give / to be the chime inside your bell / or the whisper of white petals falling / the ones that graze your shoulders / or kiss your dreaming lids / they that vanish in the pale of your skin /
I swear I do, I fit right in' //

thank you Gustavo Rojas //

Did I dream that you dreamt of me?

Maybe we are a little bit in love.
 

"Enormity does not frighten me;
it is only among tremendous things that I feel happy and at ease.
It is only among tremendous things that I feel sad and at ease.
It is only among tremendous things that I feel at all.
"

- Edna St. Vincent Millay, from a diary entry

Full Cold Moon in Gemini on December 13th during the early evening hours, will warm our blood with the very sight of her.  

During this moon, focus on what you would like more of in your life...  Hold the belief in your heart that it is already yours.  
Doubly manifest your dreams by holding them dear.  
Lightly;
remember they are alive.

It's gettin' near dawn,
When lights close their tired eyes.
I'll soon be with you my love,
To give you my dawn surprise.
I'll be with you darling soon,
I'll be with you when the stars start falling.
 
I've been waiting so long
To be where I'm going
In the sunshine of your love.
 
I'm with you my love,
The light's shinin' through on you.
Yes, I'm with you my love,
It's the morning and just we two.
I'll stay with you darling now,
I'll stay with you till my seas are dried up.
 
I've been waiting so long
To be where I'm going
In the sunshine of your love.
 
I'm with you my love,
The light's shinin' through on you.
Yes, I'm with you my love,
It's the morning and just we two.
I'll stay with you darling now,
I'll stay with you till my seas are dried up.
 
I've been waiting so long
To be where I'm going
In the sunshine of your love.
