The Dream Maker, Part Three

The theft of the rattle was disturbing.  The only item stolen from the studio. Trying to distract herself from this mystery Mary Lou did some research on rattles.

Discovered at archaeological sites throughout the world there was plenty to learn.

Music, healing rituals, spiritual journeys, the supernatural, and simply a child’s toy.

Ceremonial, sacred, magical, powerful, and simply soothing.

Her dreams included the peaceful vibrations of the different rattles she had studied and now created in her dreams.  Wooden rattles carved with love, gourds painted and decorated with leather and feathers, and the clay rattles of all shapes and engravings.  Rattles filled with rocks, seeds, grains, shells and clay pellets.  A sighing haaaa as her breath entered each rattle before it was sealed.

This tube rattle had crossed over from her dream world.  Almost alive it seemed to ache to be put to work.  Most rattles had a noble job.  She wondered at its purpose.
