This morning I had a vivid, but simple dream.
I was petting and brushing with Athena’s cat brush, two rabbits. Each were white with black spots. I intuitively knew the larger one was male, the smaller, female.
That was it. But what did the dream mean?
Upon awakening, I got out my beloved A Dictionary of Symbols by J.E. Cirlot and my Outlines of Chinese Symbolism & Art Motives by C.A.S. Williams.
Neither source had “rabbit” but they both had “hare.”
Cirlot reports that (naturally) the hare is associated with fecundity and procreation, but that’s not the hare’s main symbolism. The hare is associated with fleetness of foot and diligent service, but most of all the hare is associated with the Hecate, Hekar, and the Moon.
Turning to Williams, the hare is one of the Chinese Twelve Terrestrial Animals, is associated with longevity (?!), and is strongly associated with the Moon.
Then I checked my calendar. Sure enough, today November 12 is the full moon!
I love it when my subconscious mind taps into an archetype.

Recently, I’ve also been dreaming about preparing food and cooking for large groups of people. This is another good sign—tthat my subconscious mind is “cooking up” something tasty and nourishing for the real world.
In the real world, I cook my family’s dinner from scratch virtually every night. That’s how I’ve developed dozens of nutritious, low fat, high fiber, mostly vegetarian recipes, which I’ll share on Tier One (among other things), The Essential Digest.
In this morning’s dream, I was not only knocking myself preparing the feast, but I was baking a strange cake. I prepared a pastry crust to go around the cake, and delicious filling, and suddenly, on top, there was a grove of little trees with their leaves full in bloom.
My subconscious mind has a weird sense of humor.
I didn’t know what to do with the trees or how to make them edible, so I took the cake to the shop of a master baker.
He told me to just make the trees (which were actual trees) chocolate and the leaves (which were actual leaves) mint frosting.
So I did! You can do that in dreams! The cake was a huge success.
Tip: As you lie down to sleep, give yourself the mental suggestion, “I’m sleeping well and I’m dreaming well.”
You will sleep soundly and have delightful dreams!

Lately, I’ve been dreaming about inventing improbable things. I take that as a good sign, that my subconscious mind is active and creating fiction (and other good things) hopefully in the real world.
In this morning’s vivid dream, I invented a garment called My Body Bag™. This garment is so lightweight and pliable, you can fold it up and fit in your jeans pocket, backpack, or handbag. When you take it out, My Body Bag™ inflates to your actual physical size. You lay it down, anywhere, anytime, climb in, and seal the opening above your head.
Then you can sleep anywhere, anytime, and My Body Bag™ keeps you cool if the outside environment is hot, or cool if it’s hot. My Body Bag™ is paper-thin (unlike a conventional sleeping bag), but keeps you comfortable as a plush featherbed.
As an added bonus, if you die in My Body Bag™ (and it’s highly recommended that you arrange to die in it), My Body Bag™ will ascertain the moment of your death and incinerate you inside the bag. Your executor or heirs can then fold up My Body Bag™ with your ashes inside and conveniently drop it the nearest trashcan.
The dream went further to suggest that I sold My Body Bag™ to LL Bean for ten million dollars.
Husband Tom: “Why don’t you write a flash fiction based on your dream?”
Me: “Nah. there’s no plot. Anyway, why should I beat my brains out for pennies a word when I can sell the invention to LL Bean for millions?”
Tom (looking at me askance): “Hmm. You have a point.”
