dreaming anyone?

Above is just a snippet of art that I recently sent off for a submission.

A few nights back I had the strangest yet loveliest dream.

There was a window basically floating in black space. There was a pale colored milky "glow" coming through the window. But it's not really the glow that I found intriguing, but the warm breeze and the beautiful sheer curtains blowing and billowing and reaching out to touch me. I could feel that warm breeze on my face. I felt myself smiling and reaching out to it, letting my hands lightly touch the curtains.

Then, because I've had this yucky cold for about a month, I woke up coughing! But I immediately started to fall back asleep and I tried to recapture the window, but it was gone. Yet the image and feeling has stayed with me for days.

What could it mean?

I have been on high speed since Christmas. I'm starting a new business with a friend and we have been working very hard every day on this venture. It's a new experience for me. Not necessarily that I am working with someone else... I actually work very well with others (just ask the bartenders and cooks I work with at my part-time job as a bartender) But sharing in a sort of artful experience on a day-to-day with someone is somewhat new to me. I've always worked by myself here at the house, and can be a bit of a loner when it comes to my own thing. Besides this business, I have been working very hard to keep up with my submission dates, etc. Even though I have a lot going on, I feel very inspired every day to make things. I am feeling very positive about everything, and I just have a "good" feeling about where I am going.

I'm guessing the window might signify this. What do you think? Any dream experts out there?


  1. No dream expert here, but I do think if I told people my dreams I would be fitted with a straight-jacket and taken away immediately! I've heard that dreams are a way of our brains sorting, and ultimately discarding or filing things that have happened to us that day or even the days, weeks or months prior.

    I love the artwork you have submitted.

  2. Nice artwork Jes. I wish I could remember the dreams that I must have. When I wake up it's as if there was no dreaming. I've heard that everyone has dreams but we don't always remember them. You lucky woman.

  3. I love this post!
    I'm certainly not an expert on dreams but to me this window represents freedom. Reading about what's going on in your life right now, it seems that's exactly what you're experiencing as well. I'm really happy for you and can't wait to hear more about it. Hugs!

  7. Hi, Jessica! I discovered you via BAJM and just adore your beautiful creations. So unique and touching! Your dream also sounds lovely; I've always been intrigued by dreams and when you have one (like yours) that is positive, try and stay with that feeling as long as you can! I believe it's the soul's way of communicating with us! Warm regards, Sheila
