We return to the earth.
And in between we garden.

I suppose Earth itself is a watery garden—such a colorful and wondrous place.

Sunrise at Summit Beach

Sunrise at Summit Beach by Karen Gadient, 2014

It’s been a while since I’ve done a dream post, but I visited an interesting place in my dreams the other night and wanted to make some artwork to remember it.

Much like my last dream post location, I’m pretty sure I was on another planet.

David and I were staying at a beachside resort at the base of a snowy mountain range. I don’t think the landscape was actually shades of red and orange as much as the atmosphere—and, like the last dream, twin suns—cast it to appear that way… but it was eerie and warm and incredibly strange.

So, where have you visited in your dreams lately?
