After the first week of traveling I woke up from a dream of a woman boldly stating, “It’s already woven”. I told my family and it began as a funny thing that we kept saying in relation to random experiences during the rest of our trip.
As I am working on finishing my capstone research writing and making connections to my literature review, I read in the suggestions to think of my analysis like a tapestry in which I am weaving together information. I am pleasantly surprised at how meaning making and connections are coming forth in unexpected and not so obvious ways. I feel like when we are open to becoming more self-aware, we are more in tuned to everything around us which can also include our dreams.
I couldn’t help but search for meanings online for “woven”. I came across a book titled One Red Thread by Dov Baron. This book is about discovering purpose and leadership. One of the examples was of a handmade rug titled One Red Thread hanging with many beautiful colors. The description of the rug describes “the unique combination of the colored threads that together create the tapestry of our lives. A single Red Thread is intricately woven throughout the rug. This thread may not be apparent, but it is the very essence of what binds the entire piece together. The description challenges you to look for the One Red Thread in your own tapestry.”
This part of my research is all coming together and I still need to bind my journal. I’ve decided that I will use one red thread to complete the binding process to piece my pages together.
