friends and followers - 

while i would really love to keep my DREAM JOURNAL active, more than that, i want each of my blogs/journals to be the best they can be - of course, time is a factor in that - and for me, as it is for us all, time is a major commodity - and because i have several other large ongoing projects right now, for at least the foreseeable future, i have decided to give this blog a nap of sorts and to incorporate DREAM JOURNAL posts into my TRAVEL JOURNAL blog where i believe they will fit really well - besides, a lot of you dear friends also follow me there already, for which i am thrilled -

for those of you who do not already do so, i really hope you will come over and follow along with the caravan at

and at my other campfires around blogland -

please remember, my heart is grateful for your friendship and for your following - 

see you at your places and over at my other campfires!!!  

peace -

frozen dreams...

i carve myself
a dream of you
from frozen time
and steamy thoughts
a dream in which
the world is ours
and love need not
be slept away

the painting of your dreams...

Dreams are like the 
paints of a great artist.

Your dreams are your paints, 
the world is your canvas. 

Believing is the brush 
that converts your dreams 
into a masterpiece of reality.

in our idleness...

yet it is 
in our idleness, 
in our dreams
that the 
submerged truth 
sometimes comes 
to the top

the miracle...

The dream was always 
running ahead of me
To catch up, 
to live for a moment
in unison with it, 
that was the miracle.

a little dream exercise...

"Am I dreaming or awake, right now?" 

Be serious, really try to answer 
the question to the best of your ability 
and be ready to justify your answer.

fly me...

 "I've just closed my eyes again
Climbed aboard the dream weaver train
Driver take away my worries of today
And leave tomorrow behind"...

"Fly me high through the starry skies
Maybe to an astral plane
Cross the highways of fantasy
Help me to forget today's pain"

in dreams...

In dreams begins responsibility.

the holding of dreams...

dreams do not vanish
as long
do not abandon them

Monday, February 15, 2010

the dream arises... dreams we put on
the likeness of that
more universal, truer,
more eternal man
dwelling in the darkness of primordial night.
There he is still the whole,
and the whole is in him,
indistinguishable from nature and bare
of all egohood.
It is from these
all-uniting depths that
the dream arises,
be it never so childish,
grotesque, and immoral.

climbing the mountain...

So many of our dreams
at first seem impossible
then they seem improbable
and then when 
we summon the will
they soon become

the others...

There are some people
who live in a dream world,
and there are some who face reality;
and then there are those
who turn one into the other.

the leap of possibilities...

Without leaps
of imagination,
or dreaming, 
we lose the 
of possibilities. 
after all, 
is a form 
of planning.

the dreamer's punishment...

a dreamer
is one
who can 
only find 
his way 
by moonlight
and his 
is that he sees
the dawn before
the rest of the world

SOS for saint bernards


storm's beginning

just to let you all know i've not been away by choice at all - we are in the midst of a huge blizzard with more than 2-1/2 feet of snow out our front door - a lot of people are without power but ours has remained on for which i am so grateful - however, have had no cable or internet or land phones until about an hour ago [since friday] - entire state shut down basically - we have managed to clear the drive to the street but the street remains under all the snow as state and private plows all under emergency use for keeping main roads open - no private developments/neighborhoods have been plowed yet and no one knows when they will be - good news is that sun was out all day yesterday and is out today - beautiful - bad news is that another foot or more of snow expected to hit tomorrow into all day wednesday in this area all the way over to dc and into pennsylvania, etc - oh, and other bad news - now running out of basic necessity kinds of supplies -

please send saint bernards - chocolate, fresh fruit and wine appreciated!

our present - our dream...

It is by 
no means 
an irrational fancy
that, in a 
future existence
we shall
look upon 
what we think 
as a dream.

hold onto your dreams...

do not lose hold
of your dreams...
for if you do, 
you may still exist
but you have 
ceased to live

the dream...

pablo picasso

such a beautiful woman in what seems to be a soft pleasant dream - depicted in wonderful brilliant colors - but of what does she dream - of who does she dream - and where has she fallen asleep while sitting upright - all unanswered questions -

what do you think?

as it is...

The dream shows 
the inner truth and reality 
of the patient as it really is: 
not as I conjecture it to be, 
and not as he would like it to be, 
but as it is.

computer crash...

ok, so the planets are spinning swirling all out of kilter - the moon isn't hanging properly - i've angered the gods and know not how - it's raining - it's not raining - it's cold - and/or all of the above or none of the above - the result is the same - my desktop computer ate a trojan yesterday and/or was eaten by one - again, result the same - and so, i sit and pick and peck on my laptop for which i am ill prepared mentally or otherwise - all of which leads me to let you know my little posts will be hard to come by until my bigboy is up and at it again - my thoughts just literally seem to coagulate into blobs and not blogs on this kid sized keyboard - please be patient - i'll be in and out checking your places as i can - till then, boys and girls - peace and love - jenean

throw your dreams...

Throw your dreams 
into space like a kite, 
and you do not know
what it will bring back, 
a new life, a new friend, 
a new love, a new country.

the necessity...

Dreams are necessary to life.

seeking stillness...

hmmmm...i've been at my computer now for quite a while and remain unable to find the thoughts or words for posting - for posting anything at all - my thoughts the past few days seem to be inundated with "movement and chaos" [as my travel journal post refers to yesterday] - and sadness -

and, needing desparately right now to find a state of "stillness" within, with which to counter the chaos,  i think i have to be away for just a day or two - so, i'm headed to that inner island you see above -

in the meantime, i know you'll save a place for me in your "happy place" -

later, friends -

scenes from a night's dream...

Little Nemo rubbed his eyes and got out of bed,
trying hard to piece together a broken dream.
His visions lifelike and full of imagination
it's strange to think they came from such a tiny head.

Dragons breathing fire, but friendly.
Mushrooms tall as houses.
Giant Nymphs and goblins playing,
scenes from a night's dream, poor Little Nemo!

Eating all kinds of food so close to bedtime
they always made him have these nightmares, it seemed.

a dream in my eyes...

i wake up in the morning
with a dream in my eyes

Sunday, January 10, 2010


Come to me in the silence of the night;
Come in the speaking silence of a dream;
Come with soft rounded cheeks and eyes as bright
As sunlight on a stream;
Come back in tears,
O memory, hope and love of finished years.

O dream how sweet, too sweet, too bitter-sweet,
Whose wakening should have been in Paradise,
Where souls brim-full of love abide and meet;
Where thirsting longing eyes
Watch the slow door
That opening, letting in, lets out no more.

Yet come to me in dreams, that I may live
My very life again though cold in death;
Come back to me in dreams, that I may give
Pulse for pulse, breath for breath:
Speak low, lean low,
As long ago, my love, how long ago.

the rain falls...

Everytime you see a tree
or dream a cloud,
there is that in you of the tree
there is that in you of the cloud.

The saguaro dreams in drought and endures.
The cloud dreams our woe 
--sneezes, cries.
The rain falls.

the colour of dreams...

I've dreamt in my life 
dreams that have stayed 
with me ever after, and 
changed my ideas
they've gone through 
and through me, 
like wine through water, 
and altered
the colour of my mind.

and his punishment is that he sees the dawn before

the nature of dreams...

to me dreams 
are part of  
which harbors 
no intention 
to deceive
best it can
