Dreams are such fleeting things. Like dew drops. I imagine millions of us nodding off to sleep every night; millions of grass blades collecting water baubles that grow on us at twilight and disappear by daybreak.


Maybe that’s why some people keep dream journals… To catch those mysterious forms before they disappear and are long forgotten. I had a dream two nights ago. Bits of it were vivid enough for me to draw.

I dreamt of a pink hummingbird that turned into a fairy baby.

Hmm… It looks a bit creepy here but my dream really wasn’t creepy. Think I added too much drama as I was trying out a new iPad app, Procreate, and having quite a bit of fun.

As for what it means, I have no idea!
Three analyses:-

1) According to an online Dream Dictionary:
“To see birds in your dream symbolize your goals, aspirations and hopes. To dream of chirping and/or flying birds, represent joy, harmony, ecstasy, balance, and love. It denotes a sunny outlook in life. You are experiencing spiritual freedom and psychological liberation. It is almost as if a weight has been lifted off your shoulders.”

“To see a fairy in your dream indicates that you are in search of some help or advice for a problem or decision, but may not want to directly admit you need help…The fairy is also symbolic of your soul and the feminine aspects of yourself.”

“To see a baby in your dream signifies innocence, warmth and new beginnings. Babies symbolize something in your own inner nature that is pure, vulnerable, helpless and/or uncorrupted. “

2) My Practical analysis:
Three days ago, I was showing Little B what a pink flamingo was. We came across a yellow Hummingbird below our house recently. My brain linked the two and Presto- Pink Hummingbird!

As for the Fairy Baby, I was probably too intrigued/disturbed by the weird fairy children images in a current book I am reading: Miss Peregrine’s Home for Peculiar Children.

th a name like Peregrine, you’d expect birds to be mentioned often in the book. Well, they are! Any surprise why I dreamt of birds…O.o

3) through Spiritual lenses (my favorite interpretation!):
God is telling me B n I are expecting a baby girl!!!:DDD
(nevermind it’s a Hummingbird, not a Stork! But don’t you see how everything is PINK? Especially the fairy BABY….

Oh yes we are looking forward to another precious little bundle of joy!:))) Which explains my infrequent posts this year.. Most of my time goes to juggling Little B and freelance projects and morning sickness…:P)

Oh well, so much for dreams! I hope you had good ones!:)

One thing for sure, if you ever run out of writing/drawing ideas, dreams can be a great source of inspiration. IF you remember them…
