Thursday Thoughts

This week I have just the one thought for you, because it's really in there.

1) I dreamt last night that I had accidentally jammed Q-tips into my ears - like all the way into my ears - and needed help getting them out.

The only person I could find was my cousin, who wanted to tell me about an Incan version of the Odyssey he was writing, for which he had created his own alphabet.

And because of the extreme respect I have for creativity, I let him finish telling me about his project before asking for help getting the bloodied Q-tips that had punctured my eardrums out of my ear canals.

This is what happens when writers dream.

I'm pretty sure there's a message in there somewhere. lol I'm always on dreammoods.com.

I think the message is for me to practice better self care.

The message is that your senses and, by extension, your brain are suffering under too much input to the point of bleeding from the nearest orifices from the pressure of over-stimulation. But you're too attached to these stimuli to turn them off so your sub-conscious is taking action in the form of making your hands involuntarily block your senses with life-threatening toiletry products.

But the crux of the matter is that your deepest fear is, apparently, cleaning your ears and the torture you must endure every day from the people around you will never stop until you face your fears and buy and use one of those water squirting ear cleaning thingies like they use in the doctor's office before an ear canal exam.

You're welcome.
