A DREAM STATE is my favorite state of mind.
In actual sleep, my dreams are vivid, epic and stored sharply in my memory the day after.
They provide inspiration and an over-all sense of magic and wonder, which is totally awesome. But what's also very cool, is that the more I dream (or more so - REMEMBER my dreams) the more I can let the magical dream STATE into my every day awakened life: By letting my eyes wonder and see images in the clouds as I walk down the street, or by letting my imagination go wild hearing imagined dialogue when my cats meow, or picturing complete scenes as I drive the streets of LA or walk along the lively Venice boardwalk.
In dreams - everything is possible. There are no stops to imagination and no 'realistic constraints' to make note of. And when I am in my creative sphere, be it in acting, or writing or using my hands to create wearable art pieces... thinking of my process as 'a dream' frees the dream state - if only for a glimpse - and creativity follows along.
Flow seems to like the dream state as much as I do.
