Carla Young's trying an experiment--posting both a dream and a painting or drawing of that dream every day. Anyone who's ever tried to do either half of that can appreciate the scale of the challenge. When I posted an illustrated dream-poem daily (the Dreamverse Project) I only lasted a month before I had to cut back to one a week.
I only post dreams that may entertain others--funny, sexy, scary, scenic, weird. Carla's looking for meaning. As the name of her website hints, her interpretations are strongly Jungian. But I also suspect a subtle influence from our mutual friend Jenny Badger Sultan and her decades of dream-painting. She too dreams not for drama or amusement but for depth--and for the long haul.
Below are samples of Carla's dreams and art, ranging from epic to a single sentence.
