Sketching Dreams

This is wild! I found this old notebook from my first year working for Orvis. On 8-26-09 I drew this sketch of a horse. I wouldn't even touch Merlin until 2012.

Five years later and I am on my own farm, with the horse I drew, and no longer working for that company. My point? Never be scared to dream about what could happen in your life. Never stop doodling, painting, writing, and creating. Every act is a prayer. Sometimes they even happen.

I agree that we manifest our dreams. It may take a while, but you just have to know it.

I totally believe this. At one point I was really good about sketching whatever I wanted in my life (it was while reading the book "The Artist's Way"). One day I met this interesting woman who happened to be driving by my house and it turned out she lived in the neighborhood. I wanted more time to talk to her, but we got cut short. I was sketching later, and sketched in two women sitting at a table having a proper tea. She called me very shortly after that, like days or weeks, and asked me if I'd like to come over and have tea! I still have that picture somewhere, as proof...proof of what, I don't know. Also, funny: the next weekend she invited me and my kids over. My daughter said out loud in front of both of us: Mommy, is this why you drew the picture of you and Nancy having tea? I was so embarrassed, but my new friend thought it was cool. We have been friends ever since; I had a pina colada with her on her front porch last night! Draw your dreams people!
