The Edge of Dreaming (2010)

Available worldwide

Amy Hardie is a rational woman and professional filmmaker until she has a dream that her horse will die, and wakes to discover him dead in her field. She tries to pass it off as mere coincidence until another nightmare comes, in which her deceased ex-husband predicts that she will die before her next birthday. Amy chronicles her year and her quest to understand the cause, meaning and reality of her destabilizing dreams. A beautiful and haunting meditation on life and everything we hold dear.

This was a great film, but so much of it was downright scary. I'd recommend it, but don't watch it before bed.

I was drawn to this movie while looking for something to watch. I passed it but kept hearing the title repeat as I looked at other possibilities. After having watched it, I realized I have been withdrawing into myself for some while & not living outward anymore. This is a form of diminishment although certainly not to be considered a death... Still, perhaps a parallel exists.

As a writer, I loved watching the words emerge from her pen. I see that so much on my own. I need to find my way with words as Amy finds hers in images. I think the glimpses of the ravished earth she sees are inner landscapes of her own lungs. She is given this view to redirect her desire into one for health. I have two friends who practice shamanism and both offer me pointillistic insights all the time. It is the combination of mystery and pragmatism - the very properties of our female earth home - which give me the understanding and courage of changing my path to one that brings me outward into more life.

This film showed me where to put my attention and how to re-engage it into the positive. It was valuable for me in this exact time-frame. While I was watching it, the moon rose over my shoulder.

Time to be moving on.

From a very scientific perspective and person, this is a great look down the rabbit hole. Perhaps there is more, she is led to wonder - the film maker's dream pushes her to begin to explore further. I get the sense that was the purpose of her dream. I wish her well.

And as I have only recently decided for myself, we do live forever essentially. My thoughts on this have completely changed after having been a person limited by a very scientific and physically bound perspective until recently. I shared her strictly scientific approach too, but like Amy, I have been nudged beyond that view.

So her final thought or wish for herself was the goal of this exercise. Well done. Live long and prosper Amy Hardie. You learned the lesson of your dream very well. Like you, I await many more lessons myself, in this life and in others.
