EAT MORE FIBER

Dreamed 1996/8/8 by Chris Wayan


I eat my fiberfill jacket piece by piece. The insulation's not bad--bland, but kind of an interesting texture, like popcorn. By dream's end, I've only swallowed a third of it, but I firmly plan to eat the rest. Fiber's good for you, after all. The government says so!

I feel sad to lose my warmest coat, but it IS very old and torn. I really should buy a new one. I've been putting it off, but eating up the old coat will motivate me to go shopping.

THAT MORNING:

My old coat IS ratty, but I wore it today--to sculpt in, since I knew I'd get clay all over anything I wore--I always do.

Eat fiberfill = this evening I ate popcorn--does my dream think it's as empty as fiberfill? On the other hand, summing up the day, I ate a lot, which is hard for me as a former anorexic. A healthy appetite! Maybe the dream was saying "Good! You ate your fill!"

My friend Mark calls. He's a shaman too, so I tell him the dream. He suggests "Eating insulation could mean you're internalizing your self-protection, instead of walking around warily, and staying alone a lot. Now you won't have to be such a hermit!"

Yeah, that makes good psychological sense.

So why do I feel so stupid?

I dream I need more fiber. So I eat my fiberfill jacket.
