See that dreamcatcher up there? Yes, the squarish translucent character with the blue glass eyes. That was sent to me by Michael, who has suggested that we use it on the Women's Forum ZPortal (yes! It will exist someday very soon!) to mark the place to catch our dreams and plans for the future. I think that's a great idea. See that dreamcatcher below? That one was made for us by my sister-in-law, Celeste Bergin, a few Christmases ago. This one is round, and follows the Native American idea of catching the bad dreams, so that we can sleep peacefully.
Let's create a place for Dreamstorming.
Like brainstorming, dreamstorming is an uncensored and freewheeling creative activity. If you get started, keep going. If you lose your WHOLE BLOG, like I just did when I tried to post it the first time, just keep going. Things will come together when the time is right. For starters, here are some of my dreams:
That all who connect through Women's Forum stay connected wherever they are. That we are people who uncompromisingly believe that it is possible to live in peace and lovingkindness with our fellow humans throughout the world. We know we can do this by living each day in a loving and respectful way by Listening to each other with open hearts by transforming our anger into work for social justice, the ending of suffering, tenderness, nutrition and education for all children, kindness towards all sentient creatures. We can stand in partnership with Women's Economic Empowerment Alliance (WEE)
Advocacy Institute, and any other appropriate organizations, to create positive, lasting and peaceful change in the world. WHAT are your dreams?
