“And above all,
watch with glittering eyes the whole world around you,
because the greatest secrets are always hidden in the most unlikely places.
Those who don't believe in magic will never find it.”

Covered in books and stars

Three Muses challenge this week is Books..

"Books are a uniquely portable magic"
-Stephen King
Not very long ago, I had a dream about walking through a forest.
As I was walking, I kicked something, when I looked down
I saw there were stars on the ground..
then I noticed that the tree in front of me
was covered in books and stars.
When the wind blew through you could hear the book pages rustling,
it almost sounded like someone was whispering.
The stars were swaying back and forth like heavy fruit.
In order to remove a book from the branches, 
you had to ask the tree's permission.
I was extremely excited and thought perhaps I had died,
since I'd never seen a book tree before.
 (but have always wanted one)
Trying to decide what book to read first was my only worry.
It was amazing!



  1. Wow!! Such a amazing dream you had. I would love to have such book tree at my garden too :)

  2. Such delightful imagery. Have a great day!

  3. What a wonderful dream! It does sound like heaven, doesn't it!

  4. Wow, that's an awesome and pleasant dream! Mine have been all over the place lately. Usually on the very weird side. LOL.

  5. I love this idea - if only... A living tree of knowledge. I'm wondering if the text was really about a dream you had. I'd love to have that same dream. I guess, though, that Kindles and e-readers ARE like your tree. Whatever you want to read is accessible through the device. Anyway, this got me thinking, didn't it? Love it! Happy New Year!

  6. wish young people, and older too, would think of books this way.

  7. this is entirely wonderful! i first loved the creation and then when i read about your dream i loved it even more because you made your dream come to life in your art. love!!! xo

  8. Died and gone to book heaven. How glorious would a world be, if it grew books and stars on trees...

  9. I LOVE this. It is fabulous. I especially love that you make such great digital art. I need lessons (grin). Your book tree is out of this world.

    I want to personally wish you a blessed, safe, and joyous New Year and an art filled 2018.

  10. OH WOW. I just saw your new blog header. It is awesomely awesome. Is is the shape of things to come?

  11. Oh, love that. What an amazing dream. <3
    I wonder what the whispers spoke? Were they words of the books themselves? Asking permission before removing a book, all very old path spiritual - lovely. x
    When a visual sings to the muse and a piece of art is crated it becomes extra magical, special. Thank you for sharing. x

  12. What a fabulous tree I wish I had one in my back yard...clever idea.

  13. What a beautiful creation of your wonderful dream! I love that there were stars and books together in the tree, it makes it just that much more magical. There's so many interesting details, from the fantasy sky to the fallen stars. So glad you shared it!

  14. I love your image and I love your dream! How special!!
    Happy New Year Beautiful Soul!! Wishing you so much and more!! Here's to a great 2018!!!

  15. Very clever illustration. I so like this.
