And so the saying goes. But what about not-quite-decapitated talking dogs? Last night, I had a most bizarre dream. I won't bore you with the details of the dream, but one particular part of it really left an impression on me. I was driving somewhere on this highway. I saw a blockage in the road up ahead, like there was an accident or something. I got closer and, sure enough, there was an accident. But what was really bizarre about this particular accident was that all the victims were dogs. There were about three or four dogs lying in a row on the asphalt. All their heads had been nearly severed from their bodies, with maybe only one or two veins still connecting the nearly-severed-heads to the bodies. As I got closer, the dogs started speaking to me. I can't remember what they were saying, or even what language they were speaking in, but it was definitely a language I understood. But I can't recall now what they were saying to me.
There were other parts to the dream, but, as I said, I won't bore you with the details. But this particular nearly-decapitated-talking-dogs episode really stood out to me. And since this happens to be my blog, I decided to write about it here, whether or not it happens to have anything to do with yoga. Hmm... maybe if Ashtanga blogging really has jumped the shark (or, worse, is going to the (talking) dogs...), I should start slowly morphing this blog into a dream journal. Maybe you will then stop reading it. But what to do?
But seriously, if any of you out there are into dream analysis/interpretation, or just like talking about dreams, feel free to either leave a comment or (if you would rather write more privately) shoot me an email. I'll love to hear what you have to say about nearly-headless talking dogs.
