Dreams are surreal. Dreams can alter reality. In dreams anything is possible... Dreaming happens in the unconscious, and that unconscious comes to live, when you turn the lights out, when you let go and all you do is breathe. The concept of dreaming no one has ever really been able to explain. Why do we dream? What is the functionality of it? Is it a reflection of your reality?
And what happens if you try to combine the two?
What happens is that you make your dreams come true, and this is exactly what my brother and his business partner did. I am extremely proud and inspired! Take a look at their new record label...
10 days from now my partner and I will show a preview of our collection in Austin. It's funny how the last weeks before a show is always the craziest. It's like a fabric cave of needles, swatches, scissors flying around, and at times quite isolated! Its me, myself and my babies coming to life, but if I am not careful I will catch the cabin-fever - something that manifests as dark feelings and thoughts. You can ask my better half, since he is the one trying to keep the pieces of my dark mind together - I admire him for being able to!
Hopefully the result of these shadow games will reflect in the fruition of the collection. Only time will tell - until then, I will try and not be too melodramatic, so here are some more playful games of shade...
Game Of Shadow
Sometimes it's hard to know if the path you have chosen is going to lead you anywhere. I think that is the most scary part for anyone who has decided to follow their dream - is this a dead end or are my efforts and my focus worth while? Because what the future holds is so uncertain, it is easier to give up then to keep going when it seems like the rewards are not coming. But if you are digging for diamonds, you never know if the treasure is right on the other side. If you stop digging, you might have stopped right before you got to it - so instead - if you get tired, learn how to take a nap instead of giving up. Keep climbing that latter, the rewards are there!
At least, thats what I try to tell myself...
What is success?
"...learn how to take a nap"
