IN MY LUCID DREAMS, IN A WORLD THAT HAS GONE MAD, HOPE IS FLUTTERING. I had one last image that I wanted to try before I take a break from illustrator. I’ll resume after Christmas […]
Let the fire inside you burn.
I’m having a fun time with this new series. The possibilities are endless, and I think of new things every day. I’ve recycled some older pieces for today’s Everything Red. The red abstract is from many moons ago, and the shadowy aesthete is my youngest son—posing in a photo I took over a decade ago, at an art museum.
What do you see?
D is for Dreams
Everyone knows what dreams are, but I wanted to find a more personal way to describe them. Not the dreams we have when we’re asleep; the dreams we dream when we’re awake. I poked around google and found exactly what I was searching for:
A synonym for dream is HOPE.
A wish, like a dream Is only the beginning The challenge comes next Prepare for the fight Fear will say: “Impossible!” You must not listen Like “look, but don’t touch,” Always leaves you wondering, What […]
I don’t know if anyone else ever falls into this trap, but I constantly find myself trying to turn my dreams—or the things I love—into some kind of product, as if they’re things I need […]
My dreams are vivid, they’re bold and alive.
The colors run deep, as they spin and they jive.
Often they fade, to black, and to white,
Others appear in magnificent light.
Sometimes in shadows, or a dark silhouette,
They wait as I cling to the fear of regret.
One dream can splinter, into two, even three,
I’ll never stop dreaming of all I can be.
Well, I never made it outside yesterday (Boooo). Honestly… it is freaking COLD here! Not as cold as so many places, but in California these recent “extremes” are quite shocking to some of us natives. […]
Ah, but a man’s reach should exceed his grasp, Or what’s a heaven for? Robert Browning
But there’s a “Me” in Mentor. First of all, I wanted to share at least one of my school projects here. I’ve butchered it now, but before I made the edits it was the backside […]
A man is not old until regrets take the place of dreams. -John Barrymore I found this quote not long after I wrote my bit about TIME. It sure makes sense! It doesn’t exactly fit […]
Devote yourself to an idea. Go make it happen. Struggle on it. Overcome your fears. Don’t you forget: this is your dream. Read, read, read… I’ve been doing that a lot to learn new techniques […]
Sometimes I look in the mirror and say… “where did my personality go?!?” Well… maybe I don’t look in the mirror and say it, but I DO wonder what’s up with me lately. And I don’t mean […]
A house is made of bricks and beams. A home is made of hopes and dreams.
Hold fast to dreams, for if dreams die, life is a broken-winged bird that cannot fly. Langston Hughes
The music begins as I close my eyes. I feel the wind, as the curtains rise. To my partners arms, I approach with grace. I feel his hair brush across my face. Caught in the moment, only we […]
I’m sharing someone else’s words today. “An old silent pond. Into the pond a frog jumps. Splash! Silence again.” It is perhaps the best known of all Japanese haiku. No subject could be more humdrum. […]
So, I was reminded of something while reading a fellow blogger’s post (thank you Rob) this morning. It’s something that actually helped me a great deal not too long ago… Looking at the BIG picture. Being […]
This started with a water feature that we saw at the Museum of Art, in Phoenix. The tree made me think of my grandson, and how he loves climbing, so I brought him in and had some fun with it. […]
