The owl in some cultures portends death. This song though rather long of necessity - the message needed to be repeated - is certainly not what would be expected by this winged messenger from the 'other side'. Owls have figured prominently in my life and dreams, so I've chosen this as a visual for this story full of light and flowers. A strange balance, I know.
Years later, thirteen to be exact, I woke from a dream with this song fully written. In the dream my dear friend was walking along a broad dirt path through beautiful countryside. To the right were fields of brightly coloured flowers. On the left, hills rose up. Many of us were walking, together, laughing and playing - good friends all. We were very happy. It was a glorious day. I noticed that Sharon was walking and talking with just one person, gradually getting further and further ahead. Leaving us behind really.
This is the music with the message she sent me in this dream.
Gone now for almost 45 years, she remains in my heart and daily prayers. Sometimes I look at those with whom I have since made deep bonds who are younger. And I wonder....is that you, Sharon?
