Dreaming of Twilight

Disclaimer: This post was inspired by watching the Inception movie, which, btw, I thought was absolutely great!
First, there was a dream. Any self-respecting Twifan knows the story. On June 2, 2003, Stephenie dreamt of an unusual couple, frolicking in the middle of a beautiful meadow... But what started with a dream, certainly didn't stop there.
For books in which half of the characters don't sleep at all, there's an awful lot of dreaming going on, mostly on Bella's part, and there's certainly more to them than meets the closed eye.
Some of her dreams seem and feel more like premonitions, and I'm quite sure they were actually meant by Stephenie, to saw a seed of certain ideas about things to come.
Let's review:
Twilight: "That was the first night I dreamed of Edward Cullen." From then on, Stephenie gives us more elaborate descriptions. Early in the book 1, Bella actually dreams of Jacob-wolf, waaaaaaaaaay before we are even aware for sure that there are werewolves in the picture.
New Moon actually starts with a dream, and at first we're not even aware of it (how very Inception is that? ;)). The aging anxiety brings Bella an image of herself as her grandma Swan, next to a frozen in his 17yo glory Edward. Oh, the horrors...
Eclipse The infamous "Third Wife" makes an appearance in Bella's dreams after she heard the Quileutes Stories at the Tribal Council. Ever self-doubting and feeling helpless and weak, she realizes the wisdom of this legend about a little "insignificant" human woman who played an important role in the battle between the supernaturals.
Breaking Dawn gives Bella dreams of a beautiful baby boy and subsequently - strength to overcome horrendous health obstacles of her unusual pregnancy.
Now these are only a few of the Twilight Saga dreams. Do you have a favorite you'd like to add to my list? Any struck you as especially meaningful and/or interesting? As a matter of fact, I remember that while I was reading the books for the first time, I was fairly sure that Bella's "talent" as a vampire will have something to do with the dreams she's having. Did you have any theories or dream interpretations of your own? I wanna hear them all! Sweet dreams :)

Bryce talks about the baby blues

This is an off topic post but I saw this earlier today and thought it was such a beautifully written article that I wanted to share. Bryce Dallas Howard wrote about her experience with post partum depression for  Gwyneth Paltrow's GOOP newsletter. Read her article below and the full newsletter HERE.

I recently saw an interview I did on TV while promoting a film. In it, I was asked about my experience with post-partum depression and as I watched, I cringed. I said things like “It was a nightmare,” or “I felt like I was in a black hole.” But I couldn’t even begin to express my true feelings. On screen, I had seemed so together, so okay, as if I had everything under control. As I watched, it dawned on me. If I had been able to truthfully convey my ordeal with post-partum depression under the glare of those lights, I most likely would have said no words at all. I simply would have stared at the interviewer with an expression of deep, deep loss.

Jackson on Nylon TV

I love this - Jackson had a recent photoshoot with Nylon magazine and they did a lovely behind the scenes interview where he talked about 'Eclipse', 'The Last Airbender' and his music. Check it out below (and folks at Summit please note how cute Jackson is in real life, can we try to make Jasper look more like this in the movie - please?)
