They Dance the Dream Together

0 Flares 0 Flares ×


While painting backgrounds in my art journal yesterday, a couple of figures revealed themselves in the paint. As I was fleshing out their details, I was contemplating this cold as ever winter and thinking that maybe this sweet couple was in less than good circumstance.  Even in the face of adversity and hardship, they danced their dreams together. Our loved ones, our friends who are often more “family” to us than family, dance this dance with us daily. Together with love and support we dream a bit bigger, feel like we can accomplish difficult goals and have that security we all seek. Life is a glorious dance, made better when we are together.  So by all means dance the dream together. Linking to AJJ
