“It is important to have a secret, a premonition of things unknown. It fills life with something impersonal, a numinosum. A man who has never experienced that has missed something important. He must sense that he lives in a world which in some aspects is mysterious; that things happen and can be anticipated. The unexpected and the incredible belong in this world. Only then is life whole. For me the world has from the beginning been infinite and ungraspable.” C.G. Jung – Dreams, Memories, Reflections
I dreamt of Jersey (Matt Anderson) this night. We were in love again, I was happy with him. It began with talking to him online, and then we planned to meet. He came to Yuma to get me. We traveled by train back to Arkansas. My family met him only briefly before leaving. I think we left the same day he came to get me. In Arkansas I met his family, I don’t know if Gwyn was in the dream, if she was she wasn’t a significant part of it. I remember sitting at an oak dinning table, Matt was beside me. Five others were there too, I guess it was his family. We were all laughing and talking. It felt good to be there. The table was full of food. I woke up to this image.
More to this dream… but that is for another post, but re-reading this dream from 2011 sure did bring up some bittersweet memories.
