An Artist Questions Our Dreams: Meditation #4 - I Choose To Dream

Artists dream and do. They envision and create. They take risks and see dividends. Right?


Meditation #4 - I Choose To Dream

24x36 inches


When I dream, I imagine vast freedom, unending rest, peace and beauty. I dream of harmony with all.

I rarely dream of adventures, but when I do, they are exciting, wholesome and full of good and honest people. These are my dreams. Considered tame by some. Considered impossible by others, no doubt.

T.E. Lawrence wrote, "All men dream, but not equally. Those who dream by night in the dusty recesses of their minds, wake in the day to find that it was vanity: but the dreamers of the day are dangerous men, for they may act on their dreams with open eyes, to make them possible."

There is something to be said for acting on your dreams. For me, I find pursuing dreams difficult, not just because of the pure nature of dreams (and their near impossibility), but because I'm rather unsure that I hold the correct dreams.

As a child, I was taught to dream.

As a teenager I learned that some dreams are reserved for others.

As an adult, I am learning that even comparatively tame dreams are worthy of pursuit.

But always, I keep dreaming. Dreaming boldly. Dreaming dangerously.


Meditation #4 - I Choose To Dream, sprung from this place of dreaming. The place of quiet inspiration. A time out, taken amongst the busyness of life. As a mother and chronic illness warrior, this place is a precious spring of rejuvenation. Will you choose to dream too?
