Perchance to dream...

The Dream Studio, a small simple building nestled amidst a growth of trees and shrubs, was built upon an old foundation found by the director of O.A.C. He built the walls, putting large windows on every wall and a sliding glass door, so that one can sit inside on the carpeted floor, or the soft, pillowed bed and meditate on the beauty of nature that surrounds you.

Lizards visit frequently, and appropriately, as they represent the shadow side of reality, where dreams are reviewed before manifested into the physical world.

Inside, beside the bed, stands an easel, and a small table with books that were published at the same time as the foundation was poured (I believe it was marked 1930). Candle holders and a brass plate sits on the floor where one can burn candles and light incense, to further create a meditative space.

The last few days I have been spending a couple hours in the afternoon to read and watch the birds and animals as they go about their day. It is a powerful spot, where creativity has the potential to be courted and nurtured.
