One night a Chinese sage had a dream in which he was a butterfly fluttering over meadows and gardens. When he woke up, he sat at the edge of his bed and thought to himself, "Am I a human who just dreamed he was a butterfly or am I a butterfly who is now dreaming he's a human?" good question. I'm reminded of a statement by Edgar Alan Poe : "ALL THAT WE ARE OR SEEM TO BE IS A DREAM WITHIN A DREAM."

Very cool image!!

Marie Gale replied:

Guy...I 'm really glad that this image speaks to you...your great comment is so inspiring...thank you!

and after reading the story behind it, I am even more in love with it! My daughter was diagnosed with A.L.L at 3 1/2 years old. She is now celebrating her 16th year cancer free after being given a 30 % chance due to complications. She is now a mom herself of a beautiful daughter, and I am so grateful to the wonderful care of doctors and nurses everywhere who battle this terrible disease everyday! What a beautiful and inspiring piece!

Marie Gale replied:

Lynn...the story of your daughter is one to be told...it gives children and families going through similar things such hope...This is exactly why I do what I do...and it brings such richness to my life...as a nurse clinician...but also as a person...It's a real pleasure to meet you...and thank you for sharing your story...I have such admiration for families like yours..for having gone through such difficult times...you are the inspiration!!! thank you for sharing this with me...and for liking my image...!

I just LOVE this!

Fantastic image!!! V/F

A thousand times thank you Sandra....!

Wonderful creation, with a lovely accompanying story. I especially like the contrast between the grunge/texture of the wall, and the lightness, airiness, and beauty of the ascending butterflies. v
