IF-Midsummer Night

Odd, but this one didn't want to go any further than this drawing.  So I've left it at that.  The drawing was done on a napkin at a coffee house after some very good friends had left.  I was still basking in their good aura. Enjoy.

Tickle Toes

Asleep from the world in the flow of the collective unconscious where anything can happen.  A wonderful place to be.

The thoughts of Shadows brings to mind Magritte paintings, mystery novels, Carl Jung and his shadow side of the self work.  To look into the shadows of the self is a scary thing for "What horror will I find about myself" yet Jung thought that power and freedom could be found in the shadows with a cast of light.  I think that facing the shadow side and to acknowledge its existence brings a wholeness to the self however this not always the easiest thing to do.  What is in the shadows for you?
