catching dreams

There's something that I love about dreamcatchers...maybe it's the memories they bring from looking at them. My family used to drive through the Indian reservation a lot when I was young, and we would stop at the trading posts where I would collect dream catchers. The past few years, my dreams have been sporadic and random..but I hang a dream catcher in my room that comforts me and I believe it helps catch my bad dreams. The bad ones that slip out, seem to send me a message and help me in some strange way.
Not only do dreamcatchers filter my dreams, but they let me be a kid again and daydream about everything that I want in my life and everything that makes me happy. Dreamcatchers to me signifies happy, carefree, positive times that we all should strive to have.

Check out my new favorite song...."Dream"

I was a little girl alone in my little world who dreamed of a little home for me.
I played pretend between the trees, and fed my houseguests bark and leaves, and laughed in my pretty bed of green.

I had a dream
That I could fly from the highest swing.
I had a dream.

Long walks in the dark through woods grown behind the park, I asked God who I'm supposed to be.
The stars smiled down on me, God answered in silent reverie. I said a prayer and fell asleep.

I had a dream
That I could fly from the highest tree.
I had a dream.

Now I'm old and feeling grey. I don't know what's left to say about this life I'm willing to leave.
I lived it full and I lived it well, there's many tales I've lived to tell. I'm ready now, I'm ready now, I'm ready now to fly from the highest wing.

I had a dream
