I felt as if I had been asleep for most of my life.
It wasn’t until I became seriously ill, living in constant fear, and hitting rock bottom until I woke up.
What woke me up was seeing another Redbubbler’s photography of a snowy owl. I remember that day years ago when time stood still and I became mute as I was basking in the glory of this beautiful photography of this beautiful creature. With much determination and research, months later on my own I found the elusive rare wild snowy owl an hour from my home.
It was spiritual and life altering. I wept the happiest tears of magical disbelief upon seeing her for the very first time. I could not believe something this precious and this beautiful was right before my very eyes.
I felt as if I had been dreaming yet I was awake.
These feelings and those days spent witnessing such a wonderful gift will forever be the highlight of my life.
I carry those moments with me at all times, for they reside in my soul.
I have lived on my own with no compassion or stable family relationship for decades and in one instant this owl took that pain away and replaced that hole in my soul with warmth, brilliance, wisdom, love and compassion.
I felt as if I dreamt myself awake♥

    Very nice Heather; and cool title! While it is dreamy there is also a Gaia feel to this – perhaps because of the drawn leafs from your eyes and the background that looks like wood pattern – as though your hair is becoming a part of nature. I have to admit, it also reminds me of the time you and Kristy collected the bark … I do love that personal touch in your work though; whether intended or not – or maybe even subconsciously… meanwhile, having those symptoms of feeling certain things when it is not happening is almost like dreaming awake. There will be a time to wake up from it, but it is a good exercise keeping a dream diary – including, or maybe even more so, those awake ones.

  • awe, this is absolutely the best comment ever Mui-Ling♥
