Medicine Dream

'Medicine (sketch #1),' 8x10", pen and ink, 2013.

I've been seeing something about a woman with internal organs coming out for some time now. It started to appear in 'The Princess Who Came from the Coast,' and I knew I wanted to revisit this.

Last night I woke up suddenly at 5am and started praying the rosary. I was clasping the green glass beads to my body and pushing them along with my fingers like intestines. I kept falling in and out of sleep as I prayed. The words kept changing and I saw many things. Then I saw something very much like this and I saw that it was called 'medicine.' I got up to sketch it but fell asleep again. I might have forgotten it, but then when I was praying the mass readings for today, the first reading was from Ezekiel. Here are the words that the angel says to him in a vision:

“Have you seen this, son of man?...Wherever the river flows, every sort of living creature that can multiply shall live, and there shall be abundant fish, for wherever this water comes the sea shall be made fresh. Along both banks of the river, fruit trees of every kind shall grow; their leaves shall not fade, nor their fruit fail. Every month they shall bear fresh fruit, for they shall be watered by the flow from the sanctuary. Their fruit shall serve for food, and their leaves for medicine.”

Medicine. Okay then. I'll do it.
