Day dreams are goals.
Night dreams are conflict resolutions.
I have used both
To enjoy some magnificent adventures.
My trip to Europe
with my Girl Scout Troop at age sixteen.
I worked to earn the money for it.
Which was a life lesson gift.
My love of travel was a day dream.
So I made it come to pass
by my work in the Travel Industry.
My dream to take a trip around the world
was a day dream that came to pass in 1999.
My dream to become an artist was both day and night dreams.
They came to pass while living in France.
The conflict resolution was to get a separate life.
I got one as an artist
And have continued from that time on.
I thank my French husband for inadvertently
pushing me away and into the visual arts.
That was a true gift.
I first exhibited my work at the
Grand Palais in Paris in the 1990s.
My last fulfilled dream
Was completed in March 2015
By taking a trip to India.
Let there be more and more trips to that
land of enchantment.
My current dream?
To inspire others
To feel enthusiasm for life.
