Shadows

The other night I had a dream that I was holding a book called Searching for a Better Shadow. I don't know what that means, but I sure don't want to lose it. Sometimes my dreams amaze me.

A sweet friend from seminary who has outlived many other people with cystic fibrosis has resigned her call to the congregation she has served for sixteen years.

The school for autistic children that uses the church building during the week is going to move. They need a bigger space.

I don't know why I put these things together. But now that I have, it seems right.

Hmmmmm ... perhaps that is a book you are meant to write. Great title - so many possibilities.

Interesting dream--I love the book title. Do you read anything into it?
Seems that both events signify moving on, somehow.

The shadow that you cast, my friend, is welcome shade to those whose lives you touch... mine, for one! You need not search for a better one... just sayin'! ;)

Did you put them all together because they are each about movement and growth? As you move in search of a different shadow you have to move to the light. The school is growing and your friend is moving to a different light. Don't know but you have certainly given me much to think about today. Thank you.

"searching for a better shadow" -- I like that. Brings lots of things to mind. I wonder what the experts would say about that dream?

Perhaps you simply beat Punxatawny Phil to predicting 6 more weeks of winter!
