At an early age, Deborah often experienced lucid states of dreaming, conversing with deceased loved ones and electrifying archetypal figures. Upon waking, she often felt confused about what was real and what was unreal.
From this fertile ground, her inner author awoke. Her heart's desire is to paint with words, from a Southern woman's perspective, a rich and beautiful dimension of life just beyond the five senses.
Garden of a Desert Rose Garden of a Welcome to my website! No matter where you live, place it in a sheltered spot out of the way of strong winds. If stems become damaged by cold, cut them off so that their rotting process doesn't spread back into the rest of the plant. Desert rose usually drops leaves in wintertime but may continue to produce a few flowers if the weather is somewhat mild.
The ultimate size is up to you. With yearly branch trimming for shape and to encourage new growth and then flowers you could keep a mature plant 3 feet tall and wide. Trimming is optional - though a light spring pruning or pinching of stem tips will help create more branches and a fuller effect. In the folded structure of the rose, the flower seems to be concealing a secret inner core.
During Alchemy Guild meetings, a red rose hung from the ceiling indicates the material to be discussed is confidential for members only and is to be kept secret. Clicking on this icon on websites will take the visitor to password-protected areas intended for members only. This concept originates in the hermetic tradition of hanging red roses from the ceiling of meetings to indicate that discretion was called for and none of the information discussed should leave the room.
The symbol was used in a number of hermetic organizations in the late Middle Ages and Renaissance and was well known to alchemists.

She switched one on and then the other. Together they cast a warm golden glow over her chilly bedroom. But her body still felt cold, covered in goose bumps from her encounter. It was forceful and know-it-all. Was her unconscious mind mirroring her own inner anxieties and frustrations with her life? When a deceased southern Appalachian grandmother delivers a mysterious message to her adult granddaughter in a waking dream, she sparks a mystical adventure that helps the young woman turn her life around. The Garden of a Desert Rose , a spiritual novel, is a modern-day, Jungian takeoff on A Christmas Carol , in which Scrooge is a sweet-natured, Southern single mother in red snakeskin heels, no less who spouts Bible verses and basic Jungian concepts with equal enthusiasm.
