Dance Me to the End of Love
Isn't that a great title? It is the name of a painting by Jack Vettriano. I was looking through my Pinterest board of Art to find a subject for the art theme a group of writers are sharing this weekend for posting on their blogs. As happens on Pinterest, I went to other people's boards for the perfect painting and found this painting that floored me.
This image is exactly like a dream I had when I was a very young child. Who knows but it might have inspired my writing because in the dream, a couple exactly like this were my parents. They were sending me to another incarnation on earth but without them. I began crying because they were leaving me to be born while they danced away, assuring me everything would be all right and they would return for me after a while.
I never forgot that dream, nor that feeling of them leaving me and the sadness. What do I write? About past lives, reincarnation, emotions and obligations left over from previous lives. And what is the name of my first novel coming out next month about this? Dance the Dream Awake.
