The layers are complex…reminding one of looking into a pool of water to grab something just beyond reach…like trying to remember a dream or chasing a will-o’-the-wisp…please enjoy the paintings and inspiration quotes…
Dune by Frank Herbert – “I’ll miss the sea, but a person needs new experiences. They jar something deep inside, allowing him to grow. Without change something sleeps inside us, and seldom awakens. The sleeper must awaken.”
“There is a town in north Ontario, With dream comfort memory to spare, And in my mind I still need a place to go, All my changes were there.
Blue, blue windows behind the stars, Yellow moon on the rise, Big birds flying across the sky, Throwing shadows on our eyes.”
Requiem for a Dream, Hubert Selby Jr. –
“The voice so filled with nostalgia that you could almost see the memories floating through the blue smoke, memories not only of music and joy and youth, but perhaps, of dreams.
They listened to the music, each hearing it in his own way, feeling relaxed and a part of the music, a part of each other, and
almost a part of the world.”
Shawshank Redemtion – Red: [narrating] “I find I’m so excited, I can barely sit still or hold a thought in my head. I think it’s the excitement only a free man can feel, a free man at the start of a long journey whose conclusion is uncertain. I hope I can make it across the border. I hope to see my friend and shake his hand. I hope the Pacific is as blue as it has been in my dreams. I hope.”
