Melting the Cage of Ice


I was experiencing a very emotional time this month. I had 81 paintings on display at a gallery in my community. Many people viewed the show in tears and thanked me for telling their story, or their sister's, wife's, mother's, daughter's or son's story. It was becoming difficult to maintain a cool facade. I rely on Dr. W. and the therapy process to help me with these intense emotions.

It would seem natural for this exhibit to be a culmination of my therapeutic experience. However, the dream suggests that I not be so fast in my assumptions. The child may have been at the meat of the matter but now there is the young woman to consider. I still have much to learn.


Dream:

I was driving a snowmobile over huge mounds of dirty, rutted snow. I was going much too fast. I couldn’t see over the next rise or how deep the ruts were. I think I crashed. The next thing I know I am in a house. Someone is putting boxes of frozen meat on the counter. One is labeled “guts & gizzards, 8 years old, Emily.” Another box contains a young woman. I want to leave this house but feel I must stay to investigate. I decide not to eat anything in this house especially meat.
