Wild Moon Cottage is a small working homestead in the pristine Ozark Mountains. We have dairy goats, poultry, organic herb and vegetable gardens, a start of a tiny fruit orchard, several black walnut trees, wild berries and fields of wildcrafting goodness. We raise our own milk, our own eggs, much of our own medicine and food. I do laundry by hand, make my own vinegar, candles, soap, bread, cheese ........ For a living I am an artist and herbalist. My goal for myself and our homestead is to be as self sufficient and self sustaining as possible.

2.24.09 & The Thunderbird Dreaming

There's been an odd chill in the air today. It's actually warmed up to around 50 but the wind is chilly and there's a heaviness I cannot name. The sky looks ready to storm at any moment.

I haven't seen the numbers in a while now tho I did see 4:44 yesterday. I read recently that the reason some people see them is because we want to. That may be so tho i don't feel that it is.

I had a dreaming last night. The Thunderbird Dream ......

Nik and I were driving home in the crow truck. Like we often do, we saw two vultures circling in the distance in a field just before our road turns to dirt. As we drew nearer we could see that they weren't vultures at all and that they were huge. Bigger then any bird I've ever seen including Condors. They were brown on top and light or white underneath with a brown hourglass shape on their undersides.

I stopped the truck and we got out to see them. As we did one of them landed in the field just a few feet from us and stood very upright on it's feet. I'm tall, around 5'9" the Thunderbird, as I instantly knew it to be, looked down at me. Well over 6 feet tall. It had a feathered head and feathered wings but the wings were shaped or held like pterodactyl wings and they had little hands or fingers, on their wing joints. The beak was also pterodactyl like but with no protrusions on the back and covered with feathers. I could see clearly the brown hourglass shape on his underside and I knew that's what it was meant to be.

Altho I felt dread, it was not dread of the beings themselves but of the reason they had come. I walked toward the standing one .... and then the dreaming was gone.

We went to do a little stocking up today, a few more canned and dry goods, more bottled water, two more bags of chicken feed.

On the way to the store I saw the most amazing thing ! I have seen a great many unusual things in my life but this amazed me none the less. I saw a leaf, lying on the ground, raise up and twirl thru the air back toward the tree. The last I saw it, it was among the tree branches. I'm sure it must have been the wind that gently lifted the leaf to return it to it's tree but knowing that takes none of the magic from experiencing it. All I could think of for quite sometime is how blessed I am and how lucky to have seen such an enchantment.

Loved your dream!
Tell me about the numbers, Juli. I must have missed your original posting about it.

You do have unusual dreams. I too feel blessed on seeing enchantments. There truly is magic all around us if we're open to receive them.

There must have been something in the air last night. My dreams were strange and vivid as well, though not nearly so pleasant or magical.

Thank you for sharing the story of the leaf. It gives me hope, though I can't say why.

oh that's beautiful...about the leaf and the tree. i'd have loved to have witnessed that and would have thought more of it just as you did.

regarding the numbers...i always seem to look at my digital clocks when it's 11:20 (my birthday) and 9:11. not sure what that's about, but i come up with all sorts of reasons why in my mind.

your dream has me thinking...
