What a way to start the year.....Do not usually dream in colour, first if I am lucky enough to recall dreaming at all. The last time presaged a major turning point in my life; I dreamt of flying pink pigs and purple sheep. A curious combination as sheep are reknown followers and I've heard pigs are highly intelligent. I concluded this meant I was about to become a very smart follower. Some 24 years ago - wow time flies, at 42 I decided to get on board the teetotaller boat. I should note my 'success' in doing so was due to some special family and friends and the wisdom of AA. I discovered the boat was a pretty big one!
And now, my New Year technicolour dream is of a brightly painted flying turtle! Cannot remember the plot but image of turtle remains vivid. It's back was pattered with a distinctly Imari English china glaze in the deep blues and burnt orange.
Dream interpretation 101: for the Chinese it may be the year of the dog, pour moi its this flying turtle that I think symbolizes thoughtful execution and out with all procrastination......Hmm. Here are a few of the many projects that I have on the back burner to be realized this year at BBB studio.
*Flora and fauna fabric patterns, designs from my own backyard that celebrate the Carolinian forests from where I grew up.... start drawing!
* learn to play the damn ukelele
* is that enough....other than huge gratitude to continue the Brave Brown Bag journey
Get on with it flying turtle!!!
