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."

Respect for Other Dreams

Codex Aureus of St. Emmeran by Adalpertus

Recognizing the dreams of others is to recognize their whole being, 
beyond sensual affirmation, 

subject-object reasoning, 
to prepare intuition 
and heart-to-heart communing 
with the natural creative vibrancy of mind 

to speak in a language before tongues, 
to re-create lifetimes of unknowable voyaging 
across depthless oceans, 

the interpersonal subconscious 
to collective reflection, 

to see the moment as new 
miracle of Earth's divine creation 
and transcend precise memorization of thought 
habit extinguished 
in piecing together a gorgeous message 

of interpretive ingenuity in 

the experience 

of earthly
