I was reading your dream and then read the article posted by Gerlinda (Jan 4) on the Mayan Elder. If you click on that link, near the bottom of the text is the Elder's reference to the 4 elements mentioned in your dream. Interesting coincidence!
On a side note to the doves - I went to the polar bear swim on on Jan 1st (Canada) and the winner for the slowest/oldest was a 72 year old from Christ's Church. Just thought that was kind of interesting with what has been going on with their earthquakes.
