I was out on some land where we were preparing to throw a festival. One of the guys who lived there made us roasted garlic in this very unique way. I'm gonna try it and see how it comes out.
- Un-peal all the garlic cloves and save the wrappings.
- Dip the wrappings in a combination of olive oil and ginger and use it to bind the cloves together in a long chain, covering the entire outside of the chain of cloves with the oil soaked wrappings.
- Then roast them in the oven
The end product is a long double helix looking chain of roasted garlic. It was so yummy!
After this we were all listening to a DJ spinning for a small crowd sitting on blankets and such. At one point the canopy above the DJ was falling down and I was helping to fix it.

The Egyptian hieroglyphic sign in the shape of a vertical chain of
three links formed by two lines intertwining (with a fourth link, left open, at the
bottom) holds a dual symbolism: on the one hand, that of the caduceus of Mercury, standing for the dual streams—involution and evolution—of the universe
(19); and on the other, implying the general symbolism of the chain, that is, bonds and communication. On the cosmic plane it is the symbol of the marriage of
heaven and earth, similar to other symbols such as the cry of pain, the whistle of
the stone hurled skywards by the sling, and the arrow (50). On the plane of
earthly existence it is the symbol of matrimony: each link actually or potentially
corresponding to a blood-relationship: father and mother, sons and daughters,
brothers (51). In a wider sense related to the symbolism of bonds and cords,
bands and twine, it is a symbol of social or psychic integration along with the
secondary but very important characteristic of the toughness of its material.
Amongst the Gauls there were comrades in arms who would enter into combat
chained together in pairs so that if one died, his companion was bound to fall too.
A saying that is powerfully evocative of the spiritual significance of the chain
symbol is attributed to Louis XI of France: presenting a golden chain to Raoul de
Lannoi as an award for bravery, the king exclaimed: ‘Par le Pâque-Dieu, my
friend, thou art so ferocious in battle that thou must be chained up, for I do not
wish to lose thee lest I need thy help once more’.
Seeing chains in your dream means your need to break free from a routine, old idea, or a relationship. If you are being chained, then some part of you is being forcefully head in check.

The number one is equivalent to the ‘Centre’, to the non-manifest point,
to the creative power or the ‘unmoved mover’. Plotinus equates one with moral
purpose, and multiplicity with evil—a distinction which is in complete accord
with symbolist doctrine.
The point signifies unity, the Origin and the Centre. It also represents
the principles of manifestation and emanation, and hence in some mandalas the
centre is not actually shown but must be imagined by the initiate. There are two
kinds of point to be considered: that which has no magnitude and is symbolic of
creative virtue, and that which—as suggested by Raymond Lull in his Nova
Geometria—has the smallest conceivable or practicable magnitude and is a symbol of the principle of manifestation. Moses of Leon defined the nature of the
original Point as follows: ‘This degree is the sum total of all subsequent mirrors,
that is, of all external aspects related to this one degree. They proceed therefrom
because of the mystery of the point, which is in itself an occult degree emanating
from the mystery of the pure and awe-inspiring ether. The first degree of all is
absolutely occult, that is, not manifest, and cannot be attained’ (25). This explains why the Centre—identical with the mystic point of Moses of Leon—is
usually represented as a hole.
To see something pointed in your dream, represents action, urgency and completion. The dream suggests that you have arrived to a decision or common understanding. Alternatively, the dream may also be a metaphor that there is a point to your dream. Or you need to get your point across.

Every case of duplication concerns duality, balanced symmetry and
the active equipoise of opposite forces. Double images, the symmetrical duplication of forms or figures—such as the supporters in heraldry—symbolize precisely that. But any case of duplication based upon a horizontal axis, in which the
upper figure is the inverse of the lower, has a deeper meaning arising from the
symbolism of level. A dual being is often found in cabbalistic emblems, the upper
figure being known as Metatron and the lower Samael; it is said of them that they
are inseparable companions for life (57). It may well be that beneath this image
there lies a symbol of the essential ambivalence of all phenomena, or, rather, that
it refers to the great myth of the Gemini.
To see your own double in your dream, suggests that you are attempting to recapture the past and the good old times. Alternatively, the dream may indicate that you are needlessly working twice as hard or doing double duty.
