Dreamspeak: Tiny Acorn; Mighty Oak – Toko-pa

Click on the link above to visit Toko-pa’s site for this beautiful and important piece on the personal and collective significance of dreaming, the ‘daimon’ and creativity in its widest sense:-

‘The daimon is in your goosebumps and sudden tears. It is in those moments when you feel electric, alive and alone. It is the part of you that is afraid but follows what you love anyway. It is elation in the middle of the night when you awaken from a big dream. It is also in those difficult events that force you to rethink your comforts. It can break your heart, make the body ill and cause your careful constructions to crumble, all because it wants to be seen, valued and, if you dare, followed.’
