Volcanoes

Dreams of volcanoes, eruptions, lava flows, and calderas. My dreams like to explore (and exploit) the symbolism of volcanoes: pressure from deep (repressed) layers building up, hot material upwelling from the depths, eruptions causing chaos now but fertility later--from the ashes of the fire. And calderas--old scars that, sometimes, you don't even see, because they're too big--they're just your landscape... your world.
