Ever since I was a kid, I’ve had a fascination with native american spirituality and its creative expression. Growing up in Canada, we were taught about the beginnings of Inukshuit sculptures, rock carvings, and the many other artistic means of storytelling that originated with the Inuit people who founded our country. If ya don’t know what I’m rallying about, take a look!
I’ve had a dream catcher hanging over my bed ever since I can remember. My dad used to buy these beautiful and intricate ones on his business trips as gifts for me and now that I’m all grown up, I still can’t imagine a good night’s sleep without one. I’ve never been a great sleeper, so I suppose believing there’s something there watching over you to filter out the negative dreams is comforting. It doesn’t hurt that they so damn stunning to look at either.
I brought one out with me from home, in Toronto, and decided to start expanding my collection now that I’m in a big-girl apartment on my own. We could all use a little more positive energy in our lives, right? :)
