Dream of Two Lions


Leaving Saskatoon

The view from the window of a plane never gets boring unless it’s a longer flight, perhaps, and you’re inside a cloud bank.

We had two flights to get there: Saskatoon –> Edmonton –> Kelowna, and the reverse for our flights back. Except for a one- or two-hour layover in Edmonton when coming home, there wasn’t much waiting around. If there had been, it wouldn’t have been any problem, as Karen is perfect company.

A lot of passengers were reading books instead of having their noses stuck in phones or laptops. I noticed this trip that there were fewer people in the airports talking on their cellphones. They were using and carrying them, but not engaging in the many conversations that strangers had to hear one side of last time I went out to BC.


I left my laptop at home and took my phone, but barely glanced at it. I packed a hardcover book — a memoir written by Claire Bloom — but only read a bit when Karen and Joan went somewhere and I stayed with Dad till they returned.

We went shopping a few times. I found the jeans I needed at The Gap and of course a couple items in other places. Had to. You know how it is.

Now I just don’t know what I’m going to wear with those fancy pants, Joan! (If you think of it next time you’re in the Water Garden, tell them the belt was toast; not been worn yet, but coming apart in places as if made of thin layers of cardboard. I didn’t notice that at the store and don’t know if it’ll be as obvious when I put the pants on. If so, it may be “fun” trying to find a similar belt, one with ties that hang in the front like it has.) Looked through my closet and drawers when putting clothes away and … hm. Will have to do more shopping. Or maybe that little creamy top you gave me will work … bet it will. Thanks again for all the time we spent together, all the driving you did, the meals, the laughs, the talk. It’s always so good to be with both of you seesters of mine, and what a bonus to have Kaity along!


The other night I dreamed a male lion and a lion cub came into view and I realized it wouldn’t be safe to go walking or maybe even be outside, and what the heck would I do if I couldn’t go outside or walking?

“Being frightened of an attack or possible attack from a lion suggests an ‘attack’ of anxiety or fear about something. Consider the rest of the dream to define what.” – https://dreamhawk.com/dream-dictionary/lion-lioness/

Can’t, don’t remember what followed. I don’t think I’m anxious or fearful about anything beyond the usual.


Your thoughts matter! I love hearing from you.
