  • The McPherson Museum & Arts Foundation’s “What Dreams May Come: A Lecture Series on Dreams, Failures, and Passions” returns Monday with Carla Barber. The Museum’s fourth annual lecture series will be held at the meeting room at The Well, 101 N. Main, McPherson. The lectures are free to members and cost $3 for non-members. They are held on the fourth Mondays at 7 p.m. The final lecture of this series will be April 22.
    While most of the lectures feature people living in this area that have followed their dreams, this month’s lecture features someone who has analyzed her sleep-time dreams.  The lecture is titled Finding the Answers You Seek via Dreams.
    Barber has maintained a dream journal for nearly a decade, doing intensive study about the dream world and learning how to interpret dreams, how to learn from them, and how to sometimes heal from the messages hidden within.
    Barber has spent the past two decades working for museums, but she also spent fourteen years as a youth minister and performed other jobs dealing with people. She holds a bachelor’s degree and master’s degree in English from Fort Hays State University and enjoys reading and writing on and off the job. Through her varied reading interests she began a study of dream research that she has developed throughout the years and finds personally edifying. She began a dream discussion group in McPherson.
    Barber and her husband, Jerry, have one daughter, Angel, whose recent marriage has netted two step-grandsons. She also has a cocker spaniel named Veronica, who ran as an independent in the last election. Carla lives with Jerry and her father, Gaynor Carlson, in McPherson. She attributes her creativity, life-long learning philosophy, and desire to delve deep into subject matter to her dad, who was an inventor and fabricator.
    Barber is in her eighth year as Executive Director at the McPherson Museum and Arts Foundation and has published three books of poetry, several short stories and a biography. She leads a monthly writers group of talented local people.
