Despite the carnival aspect of all this (after all, I really do come from circus folk) it turns out I am a very good psychic.In the dream I have to buy something full of sequins to wear; I find a great wide multi-colored sequined belt that I wear with black.
So that was the dream. Today I received in the mail, absolutely unexpectedly and just as a nice surprise, a gift from my cousin. We met a few times when we were kids, but had no idea each other was around, until she found me on-line via some geneology thing. I was looking up information about my grandparents, who literally were circus folk (as was my dad and uncle) as well as vaudville performers. My grandmother, for example, was one of the Gladstone Sisters.
