My Thoughts

It was a Wikipedia:Featured Article that was on the front page of Wikipedia today, and it caught my attention.

The Artist’s Eye

The Artist’s Eye

The Daily Post had a Daily Prompt today called The Artist’s Eye, and the questions were:

Is there a painting or sculpture you’re drawn to?

What does it say to you?

Describe the experience.

(Or, if art doesn’t speak to you, tell us why.).

An Aliens Inspired Dream With Lions & SA Buffet & The Young Shepherdess Painting

I remember part of my last dream from last night that was somewhat inspired by the movie Aliens, which I watched part of last night before going to sleep, and all that I can remember of the dream is that at some point I was with some of my family during the day at a shopping center like the one where the Goodwill Computer Store used to be in the city of LC.

I can not remember most of the dream so most of the parts of the dream that were inspired by the movie Aliens are missing, I remember walking outside on the covered walkway, and there was a friendly lion outside in the parking lot; but suddenly another lion ran across the parking lot to attack some of my family and I, but the friendly lion started fighting the other lion. (All of the lions in the dream were male lions)

The Young Shepherdess Paintings

Lazy Overview:

The last few days I have been busy editing my blog and I have not taken the time to type my dreams, so I will briefly type parts of a few.

I remember having several dreams where I found a painting of The Young Shepherdess by the artist William-Adolphe Bouguereau in each of them, In each of those dreams I found that to be interesting, but I did not explore the paintings or think about them much; these dreams were positive, and I think that every dream and/or part of dream after a painting of The Young Shepherdess is in it, probably almost always is positive and I am not attacked so it like it is a symbol of safety/a safe zone or something.
