Do any of you keep little mementos around from your childhood in your apartments and homes once you moved out? I have kept a dreamcatcher my mother brought back from a trip (I think from Arizona but I could be way off), that I have kept, and it still hangs on my bed post in my apartment. It is one those small things that I think will stay with me, and maybe, if I am lucky, can pass down to my daughter one day.
Aside from being beautiful, I love the idea behind the dreamcatchers. That being that all the dreams you have are caught in the web, and the good dreams would be allowed to filter back down the feathers, but all of the bad dreams are kept caught in the net. It's beauty is in the simplicity.
