This beautiful book is a piece of a poetry taken from my recent body of work ‘The Moonflower Monologues’ —extended and adapted into a creative ode for little people and big people alike. It was written with a passionate sense of movement and aliveness for the dance that life is. During the process of creating this little book of dreaming, I imagined it being read almost as a prayer over growing hearts and minds as heads lay gently upon pillows before bed. I envisioned it to be spoken much like a chorus to the dreaming and a catalyst for the big and colourful kind of thinking. Although this little book seemingly leans to the littler of growing hearts, I see it being held by the older hearts too. “ Words are powerful enough to build worlds”.
Did you know you were created for wonder? Maybe you already know such things, or maybe you have forgotten? Wherever you may find yourself, this book is for you, it’s your story too! There are no rules in the dreaming, so sing each line aloud as an ode or a prayer, a chorus or a poem, and believe it to be true—that lovely and impossible things, can and absolutely will happen in this big beautiful life.
