Kin Domain Dream Drawing

Every child and adult should take time to doodle out a vision of their Kin Domain. As co-creators we are all master painters in our imagination. Thus, whatever the form of the image, even one dimensional, will capture the resonance of life. In this image, I see ascending arborvitae american strategically placed for view, shadow, and noise reduction. I smell the lilacs from the corner sculpting a gentle curve accented by a bubbling water fountain where birds dip and splash. The glow of giant sunflowers rotate their showy headdress throughout the day to capture the rays of sunlight providing root nourishment to a hedge of raspberries. Root stock apple trees, laden with lush fruit, hold out armfuls of abundant winter eating. Pumpkins meander away from the garden bringing back to all the confined plants knowledge from the surrounding plant wildlife. Anise hyssop spikes wave inviting bee and butterfly activity, the soft hum a reminder of the fragile ecological balance. And between the captured images, space to co-create more than enough. People, dream. Dreams are really important right now. Dreams will bring us back to the truth of who we are. Come dream a dream with me that I might know your mind.
