Still Turning


A “wheelchair” dream can be frightening.

However, if you find yourself in a wheelchair in a dream scenario, the wheelchair is probably symbolic.

I had three or four such dreams a few years ago.  I comforted myself with two thoughts: in most of my dreams, I could still walk.  Plus, in the wheelchair dreams…

…at least, I had wheels.  And I was always moving.

In one, I go up a steep street with a group of four or five others, also in wheelchairs.  This dream told me…

…not only was I making forward—upward!—progress, but also…

…I was not alone.

searching for the new mythology


About Michael Patton

I am a poet, novelist, and fabulist...A new mythologist, a peace miller, a dream worker...I don't qualify as an illustrator or photographer--I just "make pictures"...I have thirteen books available at amazon... I currently reside in northwest Arkansas, but have lived and worked all over the United States... I'm self-taught, for the most part--which is like searching for the right door in the dark. It's an on-going process.... I don't want to write MY story, I want OUR story, so that's what I'm studying: the human story: past, present, future, in its many aspects--including the spiritual. I'm proceeding at a slow crawl.... I don't see the inner world and outer world as separate. By learning about myself, I learn about others, I learn about my world.... Conversely, as I struggle to understand what I see OUT THERE, I learn about myself.... But to be clear: I don't claim any special understanding. I'm still purblind, still only half-awake.... After frustrating experience with the publisher of my first novel, I've published on my own, beginning with e-books, with plans to move into print and audio. Even video.... Along with a second novel, I've now published eight books of poetry. Each poetry book focuses on a theme. For instance, the collection GLORIOUS TEDIOUS TRANSFORMATION is about the slow difficult wonderful process of change.... In that book, as with all my work, I try to be accessible to a general audience, while also striving to achieve a certain literary quality.
