Analyzing Dreams, and Unraveled Wednesday: 19 Jan 2022

Do you analyze your dreams? I’ve been reading in “Belonging” (by Toko-pa Turner) that it’s very helpful for figuring out the problems your subconscious is dealing with. The mind can get very creative in dreams, making them seem confusing or disjointed. For example, learned in the book that if you dream you are being chased by a bad guy, it’s likely you are both the bad guy and the person being chased. You may never see their faces, but your subconscious is separating the aspects of yourself that it is working on, and the only way it can “show” this is to put you into two different figures in the dream.

How creative is that?!

Sometimes we do this as artists, too, drawing several figures on a canvas who are actually different aspects of a single subject. Sometimes a mirror is shown, as in Picasso’s Girl Before a Mirror:

Have you ever tried creating a subject with different perspectives on the same page? I’d love to see what you’ve done!

Knitting Progress

I’ve made some progress on the hat and I’m pleased with how it’s turning out.

I do a few rows every night before bed, usually while trying to find something to watch on the television.

I’ve decided that my age group isn’t the audience that Netflix is trying to attract, because I can’t find anything on there that interests me. We did find a series on Disney, starring Will Smith, called “Welcome to Earth”. It’s really interesting and the videography is beautiful. Last night, we watched how he went 3000 feet deep into the ocean to see animals no one really knows about.

It’s amazing how much life lives at the bottom of the ocean, isn’t it? Fish comprise 29% of all the animal biomass on Earth. We forget about it and often think mammals are the most important species because those are what occupy our space, when in truth the mammals are only a small percentage of the animal kingdom. Check this out:

I’m digressing… but if you are interested in seeing how our planet’s biomass is comprised (plants vs animals vs mammals, birds, insects, etc), here’s the Our World In Data link where this graph comes from.

I’ll turn you over to Kat and the knowledgeable knitters at As Kat Knits now for the rest of this week’s Unraveled Wednesday. I hope you enjoy their posts!

Happy Knitting!
