If someone came to me inviting me to race dragons in the moonlight I would laugh with glee and race out the door ready to fly away. I would barely stop to take a breath before jumping onto a dragon’s back. Oh the wonder and joy at just the thought of this!
Dragons and imagining them as real is part of Wonderland for me – the place where all things of joy, hope, peace and wonder are possible. Wonderland is the place of dreams come to life. It is the magical place of walking, and flying, as a whole, healed person.
Wonderland is the opposite of Cuckoo Luckoo Land. Cuckoo Luckoo land is the place of dark and twisted paths. It is the place I dropped into when Russell entered the hospital and still travel into at times as I heal from his death. In Cuckoo Luckoo Land up is down, in is out, left is right, nothing is as it should be. There is much wisdom to be gained while traveling in this place but the drops into it are truly like stepping into a rabbit hole and sliding down a windy slide with the speed of light.
Wonderland is the place of light, open skies, peaceful winds and freedom. Just today in reading this lovely dream of a picture I have named that place I go inside myself where I feel at peace and feel ready to fly on a dragon. Wonderland it is; the place where I believe dragons are real and I picture myself riding one to healing. All things are possible here and I believe that I can transform my life into one of Joy. Ahhh Wonderland.
I’m going to play with creating a picture board of what Wonderland looks like to me, calling in all of the magic of that place to me. I want to invoke the light, laughter, love, healing and joy I imagine as I picture myself flying on my dragon under the moonlight. I may also as I play with what the wisdom of Wonderland holds for me create another board revealing what Cuckoo Luckoo Land means to me. There is wisdom in the dark paths I travel when I am there.
I cannot, in all honesty, have one without the other. They are both part of my dance; the light and the dark, the grieving and the healing. For tonight, I will go to sleep dreaming of someone coming in the moonlight with my dragon. Oh do I want to fly to Wonderland!
