tales of a renegade boiler

my delightful day sharing dreams with deena metzger was perforce cut short as i feared by the Nice Man who came to Fix the furnace.

have you considered a new boiler, ma'am? he said, gazing at me with enormous baby blues.

not on the day the market drops nearly a thousand points, i wanted to say.

i shared my dream with the group. i thought it was interesting that deena opened the day by telling us how the women of liberia had dreamed that a war was coming but they did nothing, in terms of honoring the ancient ways designed to avert such disaster.

my dream felt like a similiar kind of wake-up call. after i left the meeting, i came home, and before the Nice Man showed up, i did a small ritual of my own, to honor the energies that came to me in that dream.

and furthermore, the war must end. blessed be.

Two questions: are furnace men fiery and are you going to let us in on the dreams? I'm intrigued.

I wanted to say thank you for the link to Deena's website, Iread through the writings she posted online and was profoundly touched.

Re: daily life- are you & Beloved now in for a new boiler on top of everything else?!

this particular furnace man was cute, but no way was he talking either of us into a new boiler!! LOL. and you are more than welcome, bookwormmom - i love nora and deena and i got so much out of the short amount of time i was able to be there. one thing she said that really stayed with me.... the only way to do great things is blindly and with great faith.
