a dream project

I have been collecting brief descriptions of recent actual dreams, all of which are included here. I am not interested in analyzing them, but simply curious about the experiences we have while our minds and bodies are at rest.

In the process of collecting these dream stories, I was inspired to make A Thousand Threads, a limited edition, screen-printed book. It contains short, meditative poems I wrote by interweaving the dream fragments of others with my own dream imagery.

This project was part of The Spaces in Between, a solo exhibition curated by Susanna Meiers, February 14 – March 11, 2011, at the El Camino College Art Gallery in Torrance, CA.

A Poem

Not a dream, but a poem:

Life is given to us to discover.
Never let me learn enough to stop.
Only more,
To listen.

And feel.

Spacing.  The dance of thought.
And silence.
The question that lingers,
Like next season's crop-
apparent, en route.
For better.
