A beautiful dream by Andrea Splisgar and an illustration by Max Ernst

Dear Shaded Viewers,

I was in need of something as beautiful as this..

"Tonight in my dream…we both went down a very wide and long staircase together… We did not walk the steps…we floated them…never touching any ground! You wore a crown and I wore a lions head..we ended up backstage of an old theatre..ready to see a stage work..but all our ways only ended ON STAGE..never in front of it.

Those who act more than just watch.

Andrea Splisgar
