Primarily a writing exercise, this dream journal-inspired blog is a quiet introspective sojourn into the process that we traverse in going from private dream to public art. I see our dreaming as an internalized mythmaking. As I philosophize and expressively exhibit dreams, both private and public, I encourage and delight in creative language as a way to practice experiential metaphors through a “public dreaming."

Dream to Dream

The writing herein identifies dream as not the opposite of waking.

The word "dream" has many meanings, as does "art." Both are words fastened tightly to the hip of creation at its deepest root, and most inlaid core.

Dream can be identified as a phenomenon which overlaps between waking and sleep. What we normally refer to as "dream" or the subconscious activity of mind while asleep, is broadened in this sense to include the imagination, aspiration, desire, and all forms of creativity suspended in mind's eye whether awake or sleeping or somewhere in between, outside of both or nowhere near!

To explore the meaning and place of dreamt expression, we must explore "dream" seamlessly.

In purity, dreamless
Still, mystery pervades

Leaving sleep
And wakefulness

Leaving conscious
And subconscious,

Inverting our self
into the role of one Dream,
united with all the dreaming.

The seamless expression of dream occurs when the verbal/symbolic/metaphoric aspect of dreaming animated by subconscious and involuntary psychic, phenomenal mystery are interfused with the fully conscious and unmistakable urge of a dreamer to create, do, and be a fulfillment of one Dream.

Each entry which falls under dream description will be an anonymous purveyance of an experienced dream, and in keeping an anonymity, begin to draw connections to a single, unified dream of all humankind.
