Once Upon a Time

Once Upon a Time

Once upon a time, I dreamt of becoming a fashion designer. I would sketch for hours, the margins of my school notebooks filled with studies of make believe gowns. I was good at imagining the finishes, the details, the lines… and isn’t there just something so marvelously wonderful about a woman in a fancy dress? :)

In quiet moments, when I let myself daydream with pen in hand, glimpses of my girlhood dreams seem to come forward… the lines just flow. Brings a smile, actually…to know that some dreams stay with us, no matter our life path.

What Lies Beneath The Surface

What Lies Beneath The Surface

You know that time, pre-sleep, when the mind calms just enough so that really worthy thoughts can come through with total clarity? Well, this is one of the visions that came to me during that hazy time just before my mind finally quieted enough to allow my body to finally rest.
