Tell me ...
... when you daydream the perfect daydream ...
... what does it look like ... and where are you walking?
Are you floating down a peaceful stream?
Or wandering along a quiet road?
Perhaps you see yourself in the city,
drawn by the magic of the lights and city windows?
And if your dreams are of a city ...
you only have to choose which city it would be
... and you'd be there ...
Maybe your dreams are not of a city ...
but of a perfect house ...
one with sparkling lights of a different kind ...
The wonderful thing about daydreams is
that anything can happen.
In dreams, even the lights in the sky ...
... can suddenly appear on your gown ...
... or the soft petals and folds of a rose ...
... are recreated by the dreams of a designer
and turn into magical gowns ...
Dreams have the power to
wash away the ordinary, the everyday,
like so many raindrops ...
... and help us think of ways
to soar above the clouds ...
When I was a child,
a note was written on my report card
one year ... the teacher said that I was ...
That she often caught me staring out the window
That teacher was right.
And that daydreaming gives me the ability
to envision the things I paint and illustrate today.
We can learn so much about ourselves
and where we want to go
when we dream.
... before the clock strikes ...
and you have to return to the
here and now once more ...
... what have you been dreaming?
If I were you, I'd make notes ...
because I certainly am.
And when we do,
who knows what wondrous things
will be imagined?
on instagram and twitter, you may have seen
that I was honored to have appeared in three
interviews in one week ...
if you missed them, following are the details:
The first is an interview conducted by
Bubbly Talk Radio ... you can
actually click on the link and
listen to the interview.
The second was a fab Fashion Illustration interview
from across the pond by Lady M Presents.
The third was an interview entitled,
by Jovana Miljanovic and
I absolutely loved her introduction
to the interview.
My thanks to all three for the opportunity
to be interviewed by them.
