I still sleep with a dreamcatcher hanging above my bed.
For the world it is just a souvenir from a culture they are in awe with. But for us, it is the symbol of a legend we still believe in. They look at the pretty beads and feathers adorning the ring. We see the web like weaving within the wooden ring. They wonder if their bad dreams are caught in this beaded hoop. We know we are protected from bad dreams because the spider woman is looking over us.
I still sleep peacefully knowing the dreamcatcher hangs above my bed.
