Recurring dream

I'm either back at University and it's the end of term or I need to pack up to return from holiday. The trouble is... I seem to have amassed an enormous amount of... well... stuff! But it's mainly books. Hundreds of books weighing down shelves, under the bed, inside cupboards. Words and pictures. Academic, children's picture books, fiction.... there's no rhyme nor reason. Well, there probably is among that pile. I'm sure I spotted a book on the romantic poets the other day.

So, there I am in this dream and on a deadline. I need to move out, load up the car, but I have nothing to put all these books in and no space to transport them. I can't bear to part with them. I panic, I rush, I wake up...

Amy prompted us to creatively depict our dreams for The Butterfly Effect. It's been a bit of a week, so this quick digital play is all I've had time for this week, but if I didn't get to make at least one piece of art this week I was going to fade away! I'm lacking in energy and willpower, so will quickly post and link this, then I'm off to bed.. Night night....

The books are coming to get me..... Help!!!!


  1. Wow, from a metaphor standpoint your dream is choke full of them!!! I haven't been able to work on art this week either and I feel like I am withering away... The writing pads in my house are taking a HUGE beating from all the doodling that I have been doing to make up for the lack of creativity!

  2. oh gosh.
    i wouldn't not want to have them, but sometimes they leave us a little gutted.

    or confused and full of books to haul.

    miss you marmite woman.

  3. What a dream ~ you are definitely working through something on the unconscious level ~ great photo ~ wishing you well ~ namaste, Carol (A Creative Harbor)

  4. Lol! I'm sure the feeling is not good but to dream of books of all things. :) Love it!

  5. I'm starting to sweat just reading about your dream. and that's some mighty cool digital art. hope your weekend is better than your week!

  6. That's my house...piles of books! I tried to thin them down, some ended up in the loft space :D I would never leave without them! When I die I will be cremated on a pyre of my books :D XXX

  7. I can feel with you, books that I love I could never give up, it fells as if they are a part of me... love your digtal represents the for me all the tons of books and stuff that I had to read and haven´t read yet ;)
