butterfly

with No Comments

The other day I dreamt I was wearing a long flowing dress, carrying a cage of some sort.  I was feeling down.  Not quite sad, but melancholy.  The cage appeared empty, and when I looked closely, there was a small blue butterfly sitting inside.  When I stopped to look inside the cage, my mood changed.  I no longer felt gloomy, but felt elated……light and energetic.  The butterflies began to multiply. Soon, I was surrounded by butterflies.  Not quite sure what it all means, but I knew that I needed to try to capture this idea in a photo.  So, this is my interpretation of my dream.

I found two quotes that I thought were fitting for this dream.  The first is “Just when the caterpillar thought the world was over, it became a butterfly”. Proverb.  And the second one is “How does one become a butterfly?  You must want to fly so much that you are willing to give up being a caterpillar” Trina Paulus.  Both seem quite fitting and applicable to my dream and where my life is at the moment, as I explore the world of fine art photography and really listen to my heart.2015-04-14_0001
