They are nothing to ignore 
or take for granted. 
In that state
 of altered consciousness,
there is discovery, 
boundless imaginings.

The key is to focus on them
 and leverage them in our awake state
most importantly,
tap into them 
during our creative activities.

Elaine Weiner-Reed - Les Retrouvailles - 22 x 38 inches

   “Somewhere between yesterday and tomorrow, memory refused to cough up answers. Found memories and broken dreams mingled in a surreal kaleidoscopic view of a story yet to be written.”

Elaine Weiner-Reed - Recalibrating Destiny - 24 x 32 inches

   “Life rarely offers ‘do-overs.’ Instead, as we live and move forward, we do have some ability to control or influence a few things. These opportunities may be subtle and rare, but we can yet recalibrate our destiny….”

Elaine Weiner-Reed - Figments of Her Imagination - 15 x 25 inches [SOLD]

"At times, I suffer from insomnia. 
But when I dream, my dream states can be quite interesting.
I have dreams with plots, music scores, themes, movie stars, 
chase scenes, drama, and many contain puzzles and symbolism. 
Those symbolic messages are left for me to interpret upon waking.

Dreams, dreaming, day-dreaming, and stream-of-consciousness...
    All are insights and intuitive glimpses into life and wakefulness.

And if we pay attention, therein lies inspiration."
