When dreams come up in conversation I almost immediately morph into a terrible listener (and as we all know, poor listeners make poor friends). I am just not in it (“it” = friendship) for the dream retelling. They are almost always long, meaningless, irrelevant stories. Will any of us gain meaningful knowledge about each other by hearing each other’s dreams?

So I was pleasantly surprised when I saw my friend Kellyn Walker translate her dreams into something lovely and interesting. Over at her blog she has written up short bits about dreams she had lately, and then illustrated them in her own signature astro-floral style. The one pictured here involved a very polite peacock, but don’t miss the one about the underwater goats.
