"I was not looking for my dreams to interpret my life, but rather for my life to interpret my dreams."
— Susan Sontag
1933 - 2004
I am a firm believer in dreams. I believe they have a lot to teach us if we learn how to interpret them. But I am not in the Jungian camp where dreams have universal meaning. I think dreams are our own personal mythology. I believe creative leaders should learn to pay attention to their dreams because they can help us with our writing, painting and other creative endeavors. Dreams help us find the way through our problems. They help us change who we are. They help us become who we need and want to be.
Are you listening to your dreams? What are they telling you about your life? Your painting? Your writing? Your music? I would love to have some of you who follow this blog to share a dream that has touched your life or changed your life? I believe I shared in an early blog about the fact that I dreamed about my wife before I ever met her. What have your dreams communicated to you? What have you learned from your dreams?
