I have a dream

I have a recurrent dream since I have been a girl. It is more of a nightmare than a dream actually.

In the dream I have an orange Y shaped slug I keep in a box, and after much mutual suffering, I accidentally kill it. This nightmare has been very persistent, and has been coming and going for the past 20 years or so. Or as one (me) may put it - 20 years too many.

A while ago, I noticed an Etsy shop that sells handmade slugs in all sorts of colors, and low and behold - they were all Y shaped. I guess my dream was not that far off. Anyway, I convod Martha, the shop owner, and told her about my dream and asked if she can help me make peace with it. Martha offered to make me a peace offering slug. After some deliberation, we decided it should arrive with a bouquet of flowers with a little note saying "Let's be friends". And so, today she showed me the finished product.

I just purchased him, so I can't tell you if it works or not. But I am sure this is a major step in my making peace with the slug nation and if that works, there is still hope for peace in the middle east.

Tonight, BTW, I had a wonderful dream about Glen Carter. Should I get a polymer clay Glen Carter as well? No way in hell. This is one dream I would be happy to reoccur.

Have you started your book? Yes, this post is book-worthy.

I hope my slug will put an end to your dream...but I was recently looking into to interpretting some of my own and you might be interested in what slugs symbolize! However, there was nothing about accidentally killing one...
