Box of Dreams:
Will I be bitten?

Dreamed 2009/3/15 by Jenny Badger Sultan

On a camping trip, a friend, who has had lymphoma for several years, suggests we sleep in the caves. I am apprehensive, sense danger. Will I be bitten by a rattlesnake? But then I feel it will be all right, that I will be able to get medical help if I am bitten.

NOTE

In retrospect this seems like a precognitive dream about my own lymphoma, which showed up in an abdominal surgery May 28.

EDITOR'S NOTE

The same night, Jenny also dreamed Weaving Mats, which echoes the theme of flesh knitting after surgery and hints again at the need to rely on community, family and friends.
