|My "dream" studio under construction in the real world!|
Let me back up a little bit and share the sequence of dreams that led to my "dream" studio. On March 17, 2011 I had a dream that I titled "Making Room." In the dream, I'm staying in a ritzy hotel suite and my parents are in the suite next door. I want to move the wall forward by three feet, so the manager comes to my room to look at the wall. I tell her that if we move the wall there will be a space between the rooms. The manager opens a door on the wall that reveals a space that already exists between the two suites. It's a dark, interior space and I can see the framing behind the walls. I tell my mom, "You know, by the time they even start working on moving the wall, we'll be gone."
I was curious about that dark, hidden, womb-like space. It seemed connected to my interior life, my creative life, which I've been wanting to expand (perhaps by three feet?). On March 26, I woke at 4:00 a.m. and decided to find out more. I closed my eyes and put myself into the dark, hidden space between the two rooms and asked some direct questions:
Q: What am I supposed to do in here?
A: It's not about doing, it's about being.
Q: Then what am I supposed to be in here?
