To Dream

As an update to my previous blog about Mary Fielding McCleary's "Swan," I want to announce that her "Swan" is now known as "To Dream More, To Dream All the Time."  The edition is signed and the etchings are now available for purchase at Flatbed.

Mary's title was taken from the quote: "If a little dreaming is dangerous, the cure for it is not to dream less but to dream more, to dream all the time. "
Marcel Proust

In this holiday season, we dreamers are dreaming of peace.  I don't want to imply specific content here, but McCleary's swan exists in that dream state where all is possible and the reality of a broken, harsh world isn't in sight.  Dreaming and believing may just be closer to reality than we think.  Martin Luther King Jr. had a dream.  He dreamed all the time.  I think we are closer to that dream than when he spoke in 1963.

So this is my (Flatbed's) holiday message.  This is a time to dream and share dreams.  This is a time to seek beauty.  This is the time to share and grow the peace.

Peace and goodwill,
Katherine
