I just finished the book Benny and Shrimp, a new favorite.
While reading, at the end of the book, the name Niobe is mentioned. I looked up the story of Niobe…and was reminded of a dream I had with a woman who had children crawling all over her. In my dream, the children turned into a huge cat and howled with the large woman.
I wonder if our dreams and the ancient, collective stories intermingle? This has given me pause to reflect back on this dream to find its deeper meaning for me.
