i am so hectic these days i'm not remembering dreams. so here is a recurring theme of mine: tornadoes. strangely these dreams are not scary but energizing. i run from the tornado, but without fear; it’s beautiful & powerful. my job seems to be to shepherd people as disaster howls at the door: i know what to do, where to take cover, and who needs help... but all the while i hide my feelings of greater connection with the tornado than with them.
