This blog isn't about my dreams... honest!

But, I did dream about worms again this morning: My mom and dad and I were in a house, and there were worms and I had to get rid of them, and I had to do it, not somebody else, and I was grossed out by them, and they carried lots of germs, and I had to get rid of 'em by catching them and cooking them in the oven. I wondered why I couldn't just flush them, but the answer was they might get out into the environment.

Consciously, I love earthworms, but subconsciously, I hate them. I've been dreaming about them for years.

Hey, what is the most readable and enjoyable thing I could read about this Enneagram beeswax?

My favorite is The Wisdom of the Enneagram by Riso and Hudson. Other good starting points are Personality Types by Riso and Hudson, or The Enneagram by Helen Palmer.

Your dream reminded me of the chiuldren's book *How to eat Fried Worms*, which you might like (or might be totally grossed out by), but it's still a pretty fun little book.

Oops. I should have said CHILDREN'S books. Stupid typos...

I read it in 5th grade (and maybe shouldn't have?) When watching At the Movies With Ebert and Roeper, I had to first put my hand over my eyes, then fast-forward, during the review of How to Eat Fried Worms. I didn't want those images going into the unconscious. However, in the movie Rescue Dawn, our hero Christian Bale and his fellow prison camp inmates eat worms and the situation made the practice seem quite palatable. I recommend the movie, by the way.
