"Dreamtime" - Giclée Print
Released January 2009
We often take it for granted the magic that happens after we close our eyes. No matter if it takes place after long hard days of work or after sessions of play, our body has an extraordinary ability to send us off to another world. We drift off to a land of excitement, of terror, of pleasure and of pain. We visit the past and enter the future. We meet strangers and friends and see people that have long since gone from our mortal world. We travel to far off places, beyond the clouds and into another world. When we fall asleep we enter dreamtime.
While we’ve all, no doubt, had many interesting encounters while sleeping, I think our ancestors understood how to engage their dreamtime better than most of us can possibly imagine. One day a number of years ago, my grandma’s younger sister, Nunu, got very sick. When told, my grandmother got extremely upset and made it clear to my mom that she desperately wanted to be with her sister–several hundred kilometers away. She said that she wanted to climb into bed and cuddle with her to make her sibling better. She went to sleep sobbing. When she woke up in the morning, she was a new woman–she was happy and content. My mom later talked to her cousin and his wife on the phone to see how Nunu was doing that morning. They said that she had had a horrible sleep as Nunu insisted that her sister Maggie was hogging the bed all night!
To me, dreamtime is one way that we can briefly pull ourselves away from this mortal world. We journey up and through those clouds unknowing what is over the horizon. We take a journey without leaving our beds. I really feel that we need to cherish our dreams as a gift. Whether you believe that they are gifts of the Creator or of your subconscious mind, there is no doubt that dreams are important to all of us.
