Wondering Dreams

with Viola and Karina, Feb 08

I've had some interesting dreams. Last night I flew to Australia for "a field trip". :) (Couple of weeks ago I was in Mallorca for a week with the Geography Dpt for a field trip..where we completed research projects. Hmm, similar in Australia, I wouldn't mind!)
A few nights ago I dreamt that I had a solo in some choir concert, and had forgotten the words to my song (or not sure what my song was..). We were looking for the lyrics, or waiting to find them/it out. And at the end when the song was found it ended up being a Savage Garden song. :D I am sure at the beginning of the dream it was a worship song or something like that! I thought it was hilarious. Maybe it was like "Idol" and the song was chosen to me, I was just waiting to be told what to sing, because even in the dream I was like me singing that? (I have nothing against Savage Garden, but it was just a bit interesting.. especially for a choir concert!) Anyways, after I woke up the dream made me think of a saying that is one of my favourites.

" A friend is someone who knows
the song in your heart
and can sing it back to you
when you have forgotten the words."

I thought that dream was pretty apt, as that day (to which I awoke) I was about to see a good friend, Johanna, as she was up here for a visit from down south. We had our half a year update, though hopefully sooner next time!


Beautiful Johanna

Praise You In This Storm

I've been listening to a lot of things, and there's a lot I could post. But I felt like posting this just now. There is something beautiful (to me) in this song.
