Today is ear-marked as working on my Easter Bunny story. It’s such a great tale — I can’t wait to get it done. Anyone here have connections in getting a storyboard book published for 4 – 6 yr olds?
Dreamers is causing me some problems. I keep going back and forth about what I want it to be about. My original idea many many many years ago was about a group of explorers traveling the Dreamscape. Hollywood didn’t like that concept since most of the story took place in dreams. Unfortunately they did not see dreams as a separate reality – only something the mind makes up. But we know different – don’t we?
The dream world and our physical reality are two separate yet distinct realities that influence each other.
So – anyways I changed the story line to involve dreams, crystal skulls and Atlantis. Then I changed it to add protecting Atlantis by some immortals with super-human powers. Next I added in protecting the origin of the universe – which just happens to include Atlantis.
Now I just don’t know.
My gut tells me to go back to my original idea and somehow incorporate the other things in. Maybe not all at once – because now it’s a book series and HW is not going to involved. So as the series moves forward I can add things in.
I’ve thought about Dreamers every single day since 2001. I need to get this story out. Besides – Iris is a part of it and she’s ready too – lol. Any thoughts guys about the Dreamer problem?
No more mind scanning. A good thing. I put myself into that protection pyramid as I fall asleep and I’m good to go.
Last night Todd introduced me to Christopher. This man has a very distinct voice. Very sexy. If I were to ever hear that voice in the physical reality I would know it. I got that he was a very private man. One that would be your greatest friend or worst enemy. It’s going to take a while to get to know him. Trying to get info out of him is like trying to get Bill to open up. HA.
Christopher left and the next thing I know -Todd and I were someplace with grassy hills for as far as the eye could see. No trees – no other plants – just miles of grass. It wasn’t too hot or too cold – sun was out with bug white fluffy clouds. We laid back on one of the hills and stared at the sky. We talked about the shapes of the clouds. There was a horse, squirrel, monster, boat and I think a pen.
We’re there enjoying the light mood when Todd said – I’m in trouble. I looked at him and it appeared he was about to cry. What kind of trouble – I asked.
Everything is slipping away. It’s all disappearing – he replied.
So I has to ask – what’s everything?
My wife, my job — I can’t find enough work to pay the bills. Her dad keeps bailing us out and I always hear about it.
Just then — Vincent showed up (I know – I was surprised too).
He sat down next to Todd and said – it happens to all of us. It’s the ebb and flow and life. The harder you try to hold on to what was – the faster you find yourself alone.
Todd replied – I’m just supposed to let it all go?
Vincent – you can either let it all go or try to hold onto it kicking and screaming. Either way you can’t win.
Me – I don’t think it’s about winning. It’s about changing – evolving – becoming who you are supposed to be.
Todd – what if you don’t want to change.
Vincent – you don’t have a choice. Until you do – you’ll be subjected to one painful situation after another.
Todd (looks at me) – so what am I supposed to be?
Me – I don’t know. I don’t even know what I’m supposed to be. I’m just doing my best to roll with it.
Vincent gets up – comes behind me and wraps his arms around giving me a big ole hug – and said – you have been missed.
Then I woke up. I have no idea why there are conversations I remember like they just happened and other times I remember nothing of my time spent in the dream world.
School starts again on Monday – oh happy joy:P
