...and the cheetah jumped over the moon

My dream life is a wild and crazy beast these days, causing me delayed entry into reality each morning, lightning flashbacks throughout the day, and concern over the issues that may not be resolved in my subconscious mind. Dream journaling has helped, and so has creating art (like the piece above). I also did some feng shui maneuvering in the bedroom, which has seemed to effectively stop a recurring dream that has been causing me some distress.

Art Challenge:

Depict one of your dreams through art. What important images emerge? What feelings from your dreams can you transfer to paint and paper and wax? Do you gain any insight about yourself through visual representation?
