Many books put you to sleep without meaning to. But here is a book specially created to send the reader on a long, restful voyage to slumberland and inspire beautiful and creative dreams along the way. It is a soothing bedtime companion, a portal that takes you from the busyness and distraction of the day into an ocean of calm. Words from poets and writers set the mind on a path of discovery and reflection and a celebration of dreams and dreaming: “We all have forests on our minds. Forests unexplored, unending. Each one of us gets lost in the forest, every night, alone.” - Ursula K. Le Guin. “Yes: I am a dreamer. For a dreamer is one who can only find his way by moonlight.” - Oscar Wilde. “‘If we walk far enough,’ says Dorothy, ‘we shall sometime come to someplace.’” - L. Frank Baum. Paired with them are lush, romantic images - forests at dusk, castles at the end of a winding road, lanterns swaying in the evening breeze, moonlight on new-fallen snow. The combined effect is like a mandala, something that pulls you in, stills thoughts, inspires mindfulness and dreaming. The book is organised into thematic sections, almost like a menu. When you close your eyes, what do you want to discover? New Worlds, Magic, Love, Mystery,or Peace? Open the book to any page, and may your dreams come true.
This bedside book pairs lush, evocative photographs with quotes and excerpts from classic literature about the magic of dreaming.
