  2. A floating castle sounds like fun. Actually, I'd like to find this sandman in the sky some nights when insomnia creeps in. -J.lynn

    1. Hi Pat,

      Well, I could just follow the yellow brick road
      or tap my ruby slippers 3 times..and away I go
      as long as no houses come tumbling from the sky

    2. You can run fast
      So I'm sure no houses will make you part of the rip cast haha

    3. Falling houses would not be fun
      have to outrun that or I'd be done
      drifting away in a setting sun...

Bjorn..thank you for picking up on the form..dancing with bears could be fun..a bear is a medicine animal of North America & native tradition to dance with the bear brings healing power....so, I welcome the bear spirit in my journey..just wanted to share this interesting tidbit with you since your name means " bear"..a great spirit animal..

  15. Sweet dreams, oh yes, indeed! This pic somehow is similar to some of my dreams before. There was a tendency to fly away sometimes to escape from wild animals or evil doers. You brought it out very well Truedessa!

  17. Very whimsy write here! Sandman seems to come up a lot this round. Now I have forgotten the origin of that whimsy. Then I forget a lot nowadays.
