Focusing on My Dreams

These are shadows 
of my expanding
dream container,
I'm starting
to draw my 
to the real thing,
the fine focus!

Dreams can be both joy inducing and daunting 
at the same time.
Right now I'm focusing on something 
important to me,
sometimes I just want it to slip
back into the shadows
where it can just be without real form.
But for dreams to come true
and bring me JOY
I must focus!

for other Joyful encounters

Sounds like you might have some planning going on! I like the transition from shadow to real thing in this sequence. Nice illustration of the words!

Dreams repair, in my view.
So glad that dainty item ( handbag) emerged unscathed.
Snap, as regards dreams.
No interpretation?
Gold stands for...what?
Wishful thinking?

May the dreams in your container grow more and more real until they burst into form more magical and heartening than you ever imagined.

Sue dear,
This is a very imaginative post and so beautiful. I thought for a moment you had gone over to the Jungian side of things and perhaps you have. Playing with shadows and dream states. It is all so fantastic. I love this and the transition you make is lovely. I am also reminded of Plato's world of forms. I hope that you are as transfigured by your dreams becoming a reality as your images in their transformation from shadow to actual form and color. May you be blessed with abundance in all things my dear friend and may your focus be sharp and insightful.

the shadows can be frightening, they can also be safe, too safe. yes, we must risk the light to be set free.

Meditation Morn

Heavenly pass~time 

I rose early the first morning at dawn, although I'm not sure if it was dawn really as Norway is after all the land of the midnight sun!  Anyway it was an exceptional time to experience the fjords we were told so I crept out of the cabin, being careful not to disturb my sleeping partner and up onto the open deck.   I was the first to appear, only the staff were out arranging the loungers. What a wonderful feeling almost alone on this massive liner feeling totally in awe of both my traveling home and the deep fjord waters we were slipping silently through.

I climbed up the stairs to the highest deck and stood in absolute amazement at the sheer beauty of this place, I thought I could hear some kind of faint mysterious musical notes, to this day I'm still not sure whether this was my imagination going into overdrive at the whole mystical experience or a distant melody carrying through on the air.....

Shadow Land & Spontaneity

Usually in photography I practice the concept of noticing the moments and what arises and arrives spontaneously as opposed to a staging experience i.e. purposefully choosing a subject to capture. Picking up the camera when something hits my radar of perception is second nature and this in turn mostly leads to the pleasurable treasures of intuitive photography.  Recently due to the exceptional brilliance of the autumn sun through my windows there have been lots of opportunities to capture the clarity of shadows or their subtlety for that matter! Shadow photography is a favourite form of imaging for me.  However, I wanted to make the shots a little more defined for added interest so this lead me to try manufacturing the outcome, or in other words staging!  This doesn't come naturally to me during a photography experience for it touches on the subject of control, taking me out of the comfort zone of going with a meditative flow and into the area of thinking or a cognitive interrupti…
