Dreamsign by puimun Dreamsign by puimun

"Dreamsign" -- the elusive anomaly that a dreamer can learn to use to gain lucidity. It is a moment when clarity pierces the fog. Ironically it is often in the form of the nonsensical and out-of-place. Suddenly the fabrications of the mind become apparent as such. Exhilaration and control take the place of fear, anxiety, or confusion, and perhaps carry over in some small measure to the waking. Muhru is dreamsign. The sound of his wings beat like a pulse through all dreams, and he is the guardian of the thin line the separates the knowing from the unknowing.

I love this picture since I first saw it.
If it would be possible I'd definitely get that bird as my first tattoo.

Your work became even more mysterious and enigmatic. There are more dark colors.

Oh boy my dreamsigns are not nearly this elegant. (And rarely manage to get me lucid.)

I follow a lot of photographers, too, since that's what I do, but it was the fantasy artists who brought me here.  When they started migrating from Lothlorien/Elfwood I followed along.
Blessings,

This is so simple and elegant - it seems a perfect way to represent that moment of sterling clarity as you describe the Dreamsign.  Neat stuff, as always.  :D
