Beautiful Apocalypse...

I always have Apocalypse dreams. I've had several of them in my life-time and they are always scary and vivid. Usually it's fire or disease that has taken the entire world down, however, last night I had a different Apocalypse dream...

I was in a field with the most lovely sunset light. I was with a crew of people with movie cameras. Apparently I was the assistant director of photography for a film that was about post-apocalyptic America. It wasn't a negative dream though... The movie we were making was positive. It was about the re-birth of the land and the re-growth of the earth's flora & fauna. It was about man's emergence into this fresh, new earth. It was so vivid and instead of being one of those whacked out dreams where nothing is feasible, this one was perfectly realistic. We were sitting around discussing what time we filmed the scene the day before so that when we filmed additional footage that day, it would match the lighting of the previous day. All I really wanted to do is watch the beautiful sunset.

All day I have been thinking that I wish I could watch the movie that I had formulated during my dream. I think it would make a great movie...

With almost all of my dreams, I can see where they come from. The scene in my head was inspired by a photographer friend of mine who posted a photo the other day of this beautiful afternoon light glazing over a tall grass meadow (this photo is hers, I gave her credit, but didn't ask if I could post it because no one I work with knows about my blog...I don't think she'll sue me :)). The  "assistant director of photography" must come from my real job, but I don't work in video...I do art direct and work with photographers, but not video.

Then, I gotta wonder if the rest is about my journey... A new beginning, ya know? A whole new world for me to explore...

That's a nice thought.

If you look at this as though the world is cleaned of it's toxins and negative aspects and you see how truly beautiful the world can be to viewed with the "bad" gone. It is a forecast for your future. You're going to see what Mary can be... cleared of all of the "bad"
