Dream Webs or Web of Dreams...
Full moon meows, glorious and glimmer-eyed Big Cats... good news on the editing front... the Kougar has completed her line edits for BRANDED BY THE TEXANS, and will be e-winging the final back to Siren-BookStrand soon... sighs of happiness along with the hope all will proceed well... moawsa! Moi super-enjoyed her *Sliders meets Bonanza meets the Three Star Republic* story... and she certainly HOPES the readers will, too!!! Nothing like three rough-tough Texas cowboys who need a whole lotta lustin’ and lovin’.
Do you remember the terrible tsunami of several years ago? There was a primitive island people who were thought to have perished. However, it was later discovered, that like many of the animals, the people had simply fled the danger zone. What was further learned by those who are interested in shamanic traditions – once they spoke with these people – is that they were warned by their shared communal dreams of the tsunami’s arrival. That is, these so-called primitive people have a long-standing tradition of sharing dreamtime. They gather in one place, decide on a question, like where is the best place to fish, then they move out on what they call their spider’s web and dream together.
Wouldn’t it be ultra-cool if we were all sharing dreams, and asking questions that would benefit all of us as a community. Especially in these times. We could create Dream Web groups, an etheric world wide web for our communities. To check out this info and learn more ~

Host: George Noory
In the latter half of the program, Robert Moss, the pioneer of Active Dreaming, talked about whether we can we really "hack" into dreams like in the new movie Inception, and the concept of "shared dreaming." While Inception has created a buzz around lucid or shared dreaming, it depicts its usage for espionage and negative purposes. Though such psychic intrusions are possible, Moss said, his focus has been on the positive qualities of dreaming, such as practiced in the shamanic tradition. "Dreaming is not fundamentally about sleep, it's fundamentally about waking up...You don't have to go to sleep in order to dream," he declared.
He has developed techniques for people to became active, conscious participants in their dreams, and enter shared dreams together, such as through shamanic drumming, which helps the mind screen out distractions. He also cited the hypnagogic state (between dreaming and waking) as a hotbed for creativity. Moss gave examples of how it can be helpful to consciously face dream adversaries, which can lead to powerful resolutions or transformations. In terms of dream analysis, he stressed the importance of examining one's first feelings upon waking from a specific dream.

From Long Winded to Short Story
It wouldn’t be the first time that I’ve been called long winded – even when I tell a story socially I tend to expound, flourish and build. What may only have been a simple childhood event becomes a long and entertaining tale.

I will say that while I enjoy writing a short story and have one coming in a Halloween anthology... and I intend to write more short stories... I think the elegance and beauty of writing has been lost to a large degree in our 'condensed' society. And this goes for journalism, as well.
An economy of words is often the ticket... however, while a bikini is an economy of clothing and sexy in it's own right, Scarlett was beautiful and a temptress in her Old South gowns.

X-Serial Flash in Two Hundred ~ Sylva and Zeke’s story continues...
Part 574 ~
Sylva felt like biting her nails. A no-go in this ephemeral state. “All hands to your stations,” Benjamin commanded, “I’m gonna need everyone here to pull this mother of a blast off. Zeke, man the other weapons’ lever.” Sylva watched Zeke pivot toward a joystick, and grip. She felt him empty his mind listening only for Benjamin’s orders. “Nevada, I need your steady eye on the energy readouts. You know the drill.” Zeke’s father slid between two other crewman, training his gaze on a panel Sylva hadn’t noticed. “Like old times. You just tell me the parameters you’re needin’, Benjamin.”
Zeke brought forth his mightiest intention to defeat the BP yellow bellies. He figured the rest of the crew was doing the same, as they’d all been trained to do. He knew for hell certain his dad brought forth his formidable will. Benjamin had slowed their forward speed and the crew easily avoided the constant fire from the stationary submersible. From the corner of his eye, Zeke watched Benjamin jerk his gaze off his screens, then glance at his dad. “They’re a sitting duck,” he barked. “Cain’t move cause they’ll dismantle that sucking portal.”

Darling Kittens, if you live in Texas or plan to vacation in certain areas of Texas, BE CAREFUL. Like has happened in Arizona, signs have been posted warning people *not to enter* certain areas because IT IS DANGEROUS. Mexico is considered a *failed* state by the US State Department. A terrible war is occurring on the southern border. Mexican troops, coyotes [human traffickers] and the drug cartels are not only battling for territory, they are essentially invading the United States of America, and taking over our beloved country.
You may not believe this is happening simply because you don’t live in those areas, or because the US is *not* defending it’s borders. However, a bit of research beyond the BIG CORP news may demonstrate this reality.
