There is nothing more magical than a special dream. I dreamt I was standing before a shimmering gold tree that was whirring with hummingbirds. My first thought was to reach for my camera. But in the dream, I didn't have my camera or my phone. So I just stared at the tree, deciding to internalize what I saw. Living truly in the moment. When I woke up, the image was still with me, so I painted it. I like to analyze my dreams. I can't come up for a reason for this one, except that it was a beautiful gift, and something I can return to whenever I want to feel that kind of bliss again.
