The lyrics of a Dave Mathew’s song inspired “Dreaming Tree”. Feeling rather sorry for myself by the constraints of returning to work, after a cross continental holiday with my Husband and Father, these lyrics really touched my heart “...Daddy, my dreaming tree is dead...”

The leaves have mostly dropped off this imaginary tree. A band of ground anchors it to the Earth. Yet somehow it is still very much alive with sparkle emanating from the bark and interior depths. It is ready to come to life and produce whatever dreams you care to imagine.
