“If we shadows have offended,. Think but this, and all is mended—. That you have but slumbered here. While these visions did appear!” A Midsummer Night’s Dream
As everyone probably has guessed I am quite fond of dreamy images. Every photo here has a story behind it which to me is as important as the picture itself and if it doesn’t have a story I will suggest one.

first full day of sun on the west coast!!
Shipwrecks and an old lighthouse, ancient stones, doors and gateways, paths and forests; all have a role in histories, legends and/or symbolism;
the lighthouse keeper, ceremonies of the solstice in the North Sea , a mysterious gate and road leading into the woods, and old Treebeard, the story teller of the forest.
All are tales waiting to be told. I hope to tell a few of my own in my travels.

the roadside gate
the old teller of tales
The Mayans believed that gateways and doors were entrances to another dimension. It was a spiritual preparation and undertaking to enter through them. Their entire lives were filled with sacred ritual. ( from my own Mayan journey in 2012)
