In the dream she saw two eagles flying in the sky; in a circle a small eagle was in the center and a larger eagle was on the outside. In her dream she was amazed and in awe of how beautiful these eagles were when all of a sudden the big eagle swooped down and scratched her eyeballs out and carried them away. We laughed and then she continued to tell me about her boyfriend, who didn't sound any good to me.
I thought about it then, how the eagle represents love in the teachings. It was obvious she was looking for love in all the wrong places. This is where I got the inspiration for my series.
