Slowly arching their way overhead throughout time, a whole mythology weaves its nightly tapestry on the loom of heaven. Pegasus wings his way above the clouds, coursing the ethers together with the long necked Swan. The entire entourage of mythical characters take turns telling their tales with each revolution, whether we sleep or wake. A ceaseless story, thousands of years old, and yet ever new.
Although most are familiar with the forms of these celestial characters, where did they come from? Who were the first to hang their identities upon the eternal fires?
Dreams are one of the original sources. The images of dreams are mirrored in the local environment. They are reflections of our individual lives. Generally they're brief ethereal wisps of which we're conscious for only a few fleeting moments, evaporating like vapors in the morning air. The memory of most dreams is quickly dispelled by the dawning focus of our actions. Slap the alarm shut, pull the sheets off, stumble to the bathroom and start to mount the rhythms of the daily treadmill. What quiet back eddy do dreams have, out of the swift, central current, to quietly reflect their wisdom? Possibly for a few moments as we stand in the shower warmed by the water or lingering over a few brief bites of breakfast. Yet in spite of their short life span, a few dreams do rise to a larger sphere of recognition, becoming captured in poem, song, or legend.A rare few have even risen above the rest, crystallized in time as those figures chosen to wheel over our heads through the millennia, carved into the firmament forever.
