Everyone dreams, but not all people remember. I’m one of the lucky ones. These are not dreams in full; they are simple kernels. Seeds. I hope you enjoy the images. May they inspire you to remember dreams of your own.
As a child I spent, maybe, far too much time alone and in books, mostly science fiction and fantasy. As a teen and early adult I spent, maybe, far too much time in books and introspection. My interest in dreams started when I was very young, continued through periods of heavy analysis and attempts at lucid dreaming, and remains with me to this day. I no longer try to analyze each and every dream. For the most part, now, I just enjoy them.
Other than dreaming, I spend time with my lovely wife, at my day job as an architectural designer, in the studio either teaching martial arts or learning ballroom dancing, and in front of the computer developing my writing skills.
Understanding the nature of the Internet, I expect that, eventually, some of my dreams will be copied, pasted, shared, or otherwise spread to other venues. I don’t mind. If I did mind, I wouldn’t be sharing them in a blog. If my dreams inspire you to remember yours, that would be excellent. If my dreams inspire you to new creative endeavors of your own, better yet.
Where things get a little iffy is when, for whatever reason, someone decides to claim my dreams as their own and/or make money off my efforts and content. I’d ask you not to do so. Or at the very least, have the decency to contact me first. If a project excites me, I may give you permission in exchange for appropriate credit and, maybe, remuneration. As I tell my students, “Treat others the way you’d like to be treated,” and, “Manners never hurt.” Thank you for your consideration.
