Dream Zone: Small creatureWritten by Lauri Loewenberg | | firstname.lastname@example.org
I was trying to care for a small bird/grasshopper creature by feeding it. It hopped on my finger and I was worried it would get out and get killed because it was so delicate. What does this mean?

Lauri: Just as you are caring for this creature in your dream, what are you currently caring for or nurturing in waking life? Is there a project you are working on that requires you to “feed” it with creative ideas? The delicate nature of the creature in your dream may be connected to the frailty of this project or idea. Is it something that could very easily end, fall apart or fall through if you aren’t careful? The bird part of the creature may mean it is connected to some sort of sense of freedom you desire OR something that you hope will take off and soar. The grasshopper aspect of the creature may be your concern that you are jumping into something a little too quickly. Let me know what you think.
Alli replies: The project must be my webcomic I’ve been working on for a year and a half. The frailty plays into my fear of not having a good idea for the next installment. I was worried about that yesterday and today and I always think, “Well, that’s it; This is all going to fall apart!” And your bird/grasshopper assessment is right on. I both hope this project will set me free and will take/hop off. Thank you! That was perfect.
Fascinating Sleep Fact: An online survey of 1,408 couples, conducted by the Sleep Council of England, found that 1 in 4 people regularly retreats to a spare room or sofa to get a good night’s sleep. The preference for separate spaces has even begun to affect home design. According to the National Association of Home Builders, there’s been a steady increase in the number of requests for “two-master bedroom” homes since 1990, prompting the organization to predict that by 2015, 60 percent of all custom upscale homes will be built with two “owner suites.
