Dreamcatchers trap bad dreams and let the good dreams filter down to the sleeping.
I hope the native American folklore is true cos I think I need a dreamcatcher. My dreams have been very vivid and rather frightening.
Medha and I made the dreamcatcher in the picture above last year for a Navajo project she was working on. We followed these instructions as well as these and used material that we already had at home. The round frame is a clear plastic purse handle I bought from Michael's for a purse project that never took off.
The dreamcatcher usually hangs on the wall by her bed. Tonight it's going to hang over mine. I have a feeling she'll be there, too. In my bed, that is.
Oh, and I saw The Darjeeling Limited earlier this afternoon with a girlfriend. And, I miss India. The colors, the smell, the diversity. Most of all the trains. If you haven't seen it yet, go get your fix of India today. I enjoyed the movie, too. It's a Wes Anderson movie so keep that in mind.
