About the Book
“The bright shadows left by future dreams once remembered.” – Andrew Back, artist.
Imagine telling an epic story about
yourself and the world through your eyes
that isn't a lie.
I had some really vivid dreams last night that highlighted to me the power of being inspired by and appreciating nature; how that sense of awe can feel like being lifted into the air, akin to flight. I think wildness came through very strongly and spoke to the wildness in me.
In one of the dreams, I met a stag and somehow I knew this: If you meet a stag in the heather, and he bows to you, be sure to step to the side before you return a low bow so he will know you revere him in greeting. Otherwise, he will crush your skull with his antlers.
This world is not what it seems,
and it is certainly not what we are told it is.
In truth, there is no sense of order here,
so our little hearts crave stories that glue us together.
In my creative work I am immersed in portraying the truth of who I am. I believe that to discern the precinct of truth, it is essential to nurture a fluent dialogue with the subconscious. By developing a keen awareness of intuitive feelings, a curiosity and belief in the imagery and sensory episodes delivered in the dream state, one can discover an authentic affinity with the world.
