Marcella Wayan

Dreams by/about 'Marcella Wayan' [pseudonym], Chris Wayan's mother. She's been dead some years, so there's no longer a reason to hide her real identity, the painter Marcia Pagels. Some dreams here display the usual mother-child conflicts, but many explore the family artistic streak (all her kids are painters writers or musicians) .

RELATED TOPICS: dream moms in general - dream dads - my own dad, Jerry - parenting in general - family values (watch out!) - dream sisters and brothers - my own siblings Miriel and Althea - See also the full INDEX OF SUBJECTS.
