“Through myth and legend Lizard is associated with the dream time. When we dream, we imagine different futures and decide which we will materialize. dreams contain some of the subtlest perceptions of the mind of which we may not be conscious.” — Ina Woolcott

There was a spider on my door and death on my doorstep when I got home that day. I wrapped him up and carried him to the garden for burial. I placed him in the ivy with a seashell in offer and sung him a farewell. “Our dreams show us our fears and our desires.. heed your intuition. Now and again it is required to be detached, to separate yourself from others, to succeed in what is necessary” – Ina again. I rarely dream for me, but that night I did. I dreamt of loves long lost and not so.. and the one that conquers all.

  1. It’s always inspiring to know that there are others in the world who would have treated the lizard’s body the way you did, and honored his spirit the way you did. Thank you for sharing this.
