All human beings are also dream beings. Dreaming ties all mankind together (Jack Kerouac)
When you come to the end of your rope, tie a knot and hang on (Franklin D. Roosevelt)
A good friend is a connection to life - a tie to the past, a road to the future, the key to sanity in a totally insane world (Lois Wyse)
I have been having bizarre dreams lately; hopefully not everyone has these kinds of dreams! Last night I dreamt I was putting out the rubbish and saw a cheque lying next to the bin. When I went to pick it up it was partially torn – the name of the recipient had been torn away. Whilst I was bent over I heard someone speaking Afrikaans and thought: oh, we have Afrikaans neighbours in the UK, I must say hello. I looked up and there was a bright blue-haired lady staring at me…
Our ties to some people, places or experiences have a long-lasting place in our Quilt of Life. Starting at birth we are physically joined by a cord to the womb of our mothers: our first tie is a strong one. Mothers’ unconditional love is a primal one; a collective memory from our ancestors. Along the way we have minor ties that are not always strong or even long-lasting. Even short-lived they leave a stitch on the Quilt of Life.
The long-lasting ties are the ones that from knots and help you to hang on. Thank you to all of you who have tied knots with me: my lifesavers.
And much love to the friends who are my connection to life: who represent my tie with my history or to the future and who are part of the insanity that is my life!
