This week’s theme is ‘Inside’. Now that can be taken literally, or be suggestive of a more abstract concept.
In my case it seems apt that my photo entry should be reflective of the week I’ve had, caught in the throes of illness. Throughout my delirium I kept seeing references to dragons, somewhat perplexed I knew however that it was symbolic of whatever horrid virus had decided to make itself at home on my sofa with my body as chaperone!
So when the heavens opened up one early evening I happened to look out of the window to watch the heavy rain only to see a very bright double-rainbow on one side….
…and on the other side what I could only interpret as a big dragon rising up into the stormy sky. I believe that my environment is a perfect reflection of my inner state and vice-versa, and I have to say I was very impressed by what I saw. Storms are very good at clearing the air by unleashing any pent-up energy, and I suppose you could say my body was enduring its own storm. And the dragon?
Well, I’ve just remembered that when I was very young when I had been very ill with all the childhood diseases that one used to acquire before vaccinations were commonplace, I used to have recurring dreams about a huge dragon that I was very afraid of. It has sort of become a recurring theme in my life, the dragon, although I have to say I quite like them now.
Some might even draw a parallel with the Kundalini Snake which supposedly lies at the base of the spine and rises at times of inner cellular change. My body certainly has been through an ordeal the last week and a half, so perhaps subconsciously I have been making important adjustments. We’ll see… either way I like my sky-dragon
