"Awakened Dreamings..."




"Grow great by dreams... See things in the soft haze of a spring day or in the red fire of a long winter's evening... Nourish and protect them... Bring them to the sunshine and light which comes to those who sincerely hope that their dreams will come true." W. Wilson
Often when I look deeply into select images, I find myself drifting within these visual elements and then daydreaming... Such waking dreaming can be so very meditative; intensely contemplative. We allow ourselves to see, to ponder, to make connections and thus create perceptions often never known or considered before...
It is from these ephemeral elemental materials that the substance of adventures are born. It is also from these inner worlds that our outer journeys then become real. Not only may such powerful and inspiring thoughts as Wilson's prompt our own musings, but the images like those above add a visual potency of their own to our dreams... In this time of an awakening spring where specific goals and details of plans & preparations begin to formulate, we often need to just remember to dream, just dream... and then follow where these trails may lead us.....
