Driftwood Horse Sculptures

July 3, 2007 at 4:11 pm (art, cool stuff)

I came across this mention of driftwood horse sculptures that caught my eye. I guess some things never change. I collected horse figurines as a little girl and here I am again. But some things definitely do change. These are not your little porcelain unicorns, these are amazing works of art. They remind me of the larger than life metal horse sculpture in downtown Calgary that I covet on a regular basis. And I want one. Desperately. (I know my birthday and Christmas are a long ways away, but friends and family should take note of this post!!!)

Dream a Lucid Dream

June 25, 2007 at 3:01 pm (cool site, cool stuff, weird)

Have you ever had a lucid dream? I have. They’re amazing. Even better than my “movie dreams” (that’s what I call my dreams that actually make sense and have rather epic story lines). In case you don’t know what I’m talking about, lucid dreams are dreams in which you are aware that you are dreaming while the dream is in progress. In lucid dreams, it is often possible to exert conscious control over the dream characters and environment, as well as to perform otherwise physically impossible feats. Personally, my favourite thing to do in a lucid dream is fly, but I don’t limit myself to that. I mean, it’s a dream… by its very nature it should be limitless.

But I haven’t been having as many lucid dreams lately as I used to. I think it might be partly to do with the medication that I need to take to help me sleep these days. I’m not as in touch with my dreams as I used to be and I feel like it’s sapping my creativity. So, although I haven’t tried it yet, I am intrigued by this site that says it can help me rediscover lucid dreaming. The site’s author says that, over the years, he tried all the lucid dreaming tools out there. Some of them worked, some of them didn’t. So he’s put together the best of what he found with some of his own techniques and created a Lucid Dreaming Kit. And it has a money back guarantee. I’ve gotta admit that I’m tempted…
