On a recent trip back from Sydney I was fortunate to find this delightful dreamcatcher. I have hanging it above my desk in celebration of my next book – the second in my Oregon Coast Series.
The Dreamcatcher legend is an interesting one: It is believed to have originated with the Oneida Indians in the United States. The dreamcatcher allows good dreams to flow through the spirit hole in the centre of the web, but bad dreams are trapped in the web and then disappear with the morning sun.
In my book The Dreamcatcher, both Ellen and Travis are troubled by bad dreams and have to work through their meaning in order to move forward with their lives.
