Dream on Keith

"Dream on, for dreams are Sweet." They are needed to mend your soul. Do not run from your dreams. They are meant to cleanse your body of the unneeded torments your soul goes through. When the guilt of the day racks your body at night, your soul must cleanse them. Even the nightmares are sweet because they are a harbinger of your soul being cleansed of the guilt. Take the "Dream Catcher". Bless it with your God and it will protect you at night. It will catch your dreams and your soul will be cleansed and pure, ready to begin a new day. The old Indian did not smile. His eyes were black as polished ebony. They had the depth of a mountain pool and as I looked into them I felt the reflection of my soul looking back at me. My body seemed be more erect, my heart felt younger and there seemed to be a heavy burden lifted from my mind. I felt pure and cleansed as if I had just been forgiven of all my sins. He never blinked and I knew I was looking into the eyes of all men's souls. "You have been blessed my son, " he whispered. "You have been allowed to see into the eyes of God." You do not waver, you believe. "Dream on, for Dreams are Sweet"

  3. This is a great story. Loved the folklore, the visual aspects of words and the wonderful realization we take the good with the bad and while in dreamland...there we care set free.

    Great stuff

  11. I am fascinated by dream catchers. My son used to have very bad dreams when he was little so we put a dream catcher above his bed to capture the bad dreams. So far it has seemed to work...
    Lovely story!
