Dreamcatchers

Yesterday we had a conference call with the folks at Nexus who are builiding our RV out there in Elkhart, Indiana. Just going over the final changes and $$. It's a lot like having a new house built, just not as many details or dollars, but you always end up adding something on! After that conversation, it really feels like we are getting close ... which we are! It's just coming up on two months away now.

We are naming our new home DREAMCATCHERS, and we're having a dreamcatcher logo put on the back of it. So if you see it on the road, that will be us!! Wave!!

The logo was a splurge that RVPainter is paying for with $$ from a recent sale of a painting. He has a strong attraction to Native American culture and has always loved dreamcatchers for what they symbolize: Your good dreams go through the middle hole so they can go out into the world and come true. The bad dreams get caught in the web where they perish at the first light of dawn. The feathers symbolize the breath of life.


It seemed like an appropriate symbol for our RV and our upcoming journey - our good dreams coming true all along the journey. I wanted to show you the logo design, but it's in pdf and I can't figure out how to insert that here. So instead, here is a picture of RVPainter's dreamcatcher that was used as the model for the design, and when I can figure out how to show you the design itself, I will!

  4. I love that name: Dreamcatchers, and what it symbolizes to Native Americans. It's a perfect logo as you head out on your next journey.

    I hope to soon get your book read and a review written. So it's a Christmas story. I like to listen to Christmas hymns all through the year. I remember when I was young, I read Miracle on 34th Street again and again through the year.

    Look forward to future posts about your journey.

  7. Ever since I discovered dreamcatchers - lots of years ago now - I've had one. That's a lovely concept to take with you as you travel your dreams.

    Delores - I will definitely let you know when Ontario is on the gps!

  9. DW - so the folk lore goes, a Dreamcatcher should be place in a North facing orientation - we'll just have to keep moving our inside one around all the time - as when winter moves in we are heading SOUTH!

  10. I have a dream catcher hanging in my bedroom. I smile at it as I wake, and now I have an additional reason to do so.

  14. I like the symbolism behind it and what it means for you on your journey. In Australia we'd sum it up as 'No worries mate'
