Attention all Hellenes....
It would appear that I have a message from Apollo for us.
I had a dream last night that I went to Delphi. By the time my parents and I got there, it was night. I remember exploring the winding paths up the mountain until I was approached by an official who told me that it was night and I had to leave, or I'd be entering into another country. I sorta blinked a bit at this one and kept going further, and was approached by a wolf. I remember being afraid that the wolf would attack and kill me, but then I realized that at this point, I had seen all of Delphi's ruins but Apollo's old temple. I could've come back in the morning, but I was determined to see the temple.
At this point, I was shown an old tripod chair, and I remembered how the tripod at the Delphic Oracle was destroyed. I think at this point I sat in the chair, and the dream began to change.
I was watching Greece in the modern day, and they were making plans to take Apollo's old temple at Delphi and make it into a new Greek Orthodox church. As if this weren't insult enough, they wanted to make a ship out of it and add it to the Greek navy.
I remember looking at the ships and thinking to myself that it would be better to fashion new ships using old temples as a model rather than using the old stones to make new temples. It was obvious that if they used the old buildings to make new ones, then they stood a chance at being destroyed for good with nothing left for future generations to look upon and study. Using old temples to make new ones was definitely a bad idea versus using them as a model.
And I woke up, having slept through my alarm by about half an hour.
If people think I should post this to the Hellenion list or any other emailing list, let me know. I'll leave everyone to puzzle over its meaning.
Just a side note, wolves are sacred to Apollo, as are crows and ravens. :)
