Dream the story and write the dream
I’ve had an interesting week. After my incident with the reversing cars my husband lost his wallet. We spent Thursday cancelling his cards and calling the police to see if it had been handed in. He has multiple licenses ranging from confined space entry, to ‘A’ grade electrical (he works in the fire safety industry) and it was such a hassle trying to figure out how he was going to replace them all.
Thursday night I was enjoying Bonnie’s blog and told her I was feeling ‘stumpy’.
Friday was a different day. I woke up in the morning having dreamed a novel – In the Company of Beasts – (most of my novels come to me in dreams). I’m now four chapters in and totally loving it :) I’m thinking my dream may have been ‘switched on’ from the stress of the day and then giggling at the pictures on Bonnie’s post (oh – how I love the subliminal!)
Then about eight o’clock Friday morning came the knock at the door. There stood a lovely man holding my husband’s wallet. I’ve always held great faith in the honesty of people and this kind act only served to confirm it! So – to the lovely man who found the wallet – a big THANK YOU!
It’s amazing how we can influence and inspire each other and how a few beautifully written words or an act of honesty and kindness can massage the way we think, feel and dream.
When I read BC’s post on Friday I was speechless and felt incredibly humbled that one of my posts had inspired her to write something so poignant and moving! To all those who have inspired me (sometimes without even knowing!) thank you, too!!
Don’t you just love inspiration? Even the word itself rolls beautifully off the tongue…
