dabbling in life: I never dreamed. . .

I never dreamed. . .

From childhood fairy tales to college philosophy classes, myths have been important to me.  And frankly, if I paid more attention to them, I might avoid some of my troubles.  Myths go beyond our normal boundaries of reality and touch that which is deep within us.  The mermaid represents imagination, and I knew that my first (and more to come) non-family project would involve mermaids.  So, this weekend I created my mermaid. Or, maybe she was already there and I only let her out. When I couldn't come up with a word or phrase for her, there in the old glued book page were the words, "I never dreamed..." 

This has been a big step for me, and I'm now dreaming of even more.  Thank you for letting me share with you, my mermaid.

I always forget how much I love mermaids and what they represent...Yours has such wonderful texture and an extra fancy tail. Is it layered paper? She is lovely.

Your adventuresome spirit is exhibited by the fact that you created the art! Yes, it's all Constance. :) Keep it up..
