the cessation of time as brought about by sleep by 

In a dream you are never eighty. ~Anne Sexton

Or sixty.. or fifty… even forty! I think I’m usually thirty-one, give or take. Then, “Age is just a number. Mine is unlisted.” ~Author Unknown

Lately I’ve been working on art related to dreams. I did not set out to do a series but I guess I have. Actually I take my inspirations from the songs I hear coming from the basement in the morning… (hubby’s radio). Then I go to you-tube, find the song and see what evolves. I’ve also been experimenting with various layer-types and light effects ~ this is just the latest on the list. Hope you enjoy it! I guess the message here is just a little bit sarcastic as I’m not exactly thirty one anymore… yeah, “Dream On!” lol

    Love this image…the quote…the song…selfishly, because it makes me think of me! What happened? I was 23 years old just a few minutes ago! Excellent image…the kind that makes one pause and thing….
