And In My Dreams I Am Able To Leap Tall Buildings In a Single Bound, Descend a Staircase in a Single Leap, Jump From Rooftop to Rooftop With The Greatest of Ease
I do have dreams where I can fly and it does not involve wings...it just involves leaping. My favorite is when I can take one leap and descend a grand staircase.
Dreams (written by R.D Davies)
When I look so far away/ Please don't wake me from my dreams/ I'm just wondering who I could be/ If I lived inside my dreams/
I could be a king or a football star/ Drive around in a big sports car/ An astronaut or a millionaire/ I could do anything or go anywhere
Dream I'm far away
Racing driver or a great politician/ A man of power or a man of religion/ I could be almost anything/ If I could live inside my dreams
Please don't wake me from my dreams

I have long dreams of drifting through art galleries, floating through museums, gazing at vividly colored paintings I have never seen before.
Three Jackson Pollock paintings are cut up and spliced: Lavender Mist (1950), Autumn Rhythm (1950), and Convergence (1952).

Background from a women's sportswear catalog. Image of Niagara Falls is not a photo: that's a black-and-white reproduction of Frederic Edwin Church's oil painting. Contemplative young man in harlequin attire by Pablo Picasso. Doves from the lid of a children's magic set. Numbers from a magazine article on late 19th century spiritualists.
I really am haunted by thoughts of eternity. And infinity. Endless numerals spooling out like the number pi. Maybe it has to do with being over the hill.
I have a question: if one dove is for the Holy Spirit, what do two doves mean?
Inspired by a quote (which is the title of this collage) that I read online re: Kate Middleton's dream that she is completely nude at her Royal Wedding.
The girl in the collage is me circa 1966, then as now, on the outside looking in...a dream that manifests in different ways and often recurs.

This week has been a difficult one for me, several ideas for the theme which would elude me as soon as I began to pursue the idea. This one feels lame to me for some reason, oh well, can't have a winner every time.
Alternate title "Have you ever wondered when your time would be up?"

Background is comprised of a photo of oil barrels and a painting by Ron Cohen. The elderly nude is from Alice Neel's fabulous "Nude Self-Portrait" (1980), which hangs in the National Portrait Gallery, Washington, D.C. Gilbert & George are a British artist duo whose works often include photos of them in suits & ties.
