Why BluAmaryllis?

I keep a dream log. If you ever have any doubt about the infinite possibilities inherent to this universe, start keeping a dream log. It will be full of mysteries, packed with unanswered questions, oozing with cryptic suggestions: the puppy is called ‘Medal”, the house has no windows, your mother-in-law decides to die on a bridge in your father’s arms. It’s all there: suspense, love, betrayal, exotic places, good food, and some sex too from time to time!

I’m particularly fond of my dream baby. This is the script: I’m in a delivery room breathing deeply and pushing. A little girl is born. She is very, very blue, with pointy ears. I recover instantly and set off to find the father (?!). When I return, Amaryllis, her name in the dream, is already jumping up and down. She’s extremely strong, powerful, and fast. I ask a woman in the room if she knows where my baby comes from. She replies that she comes from the land of fairies, a magical place.  

Amaryllis is my artistic child, daughter of my heart. She enjoys boundless energy and comes bearing a miraculous gift: writing. The dance of words, the flow of creativity, the deep joy of self expression. All in a dream come true.

  3. Maryse,

    Thanks for stopping by Monarch Musings. We are connected by the amaryllis!! They are so dreamy and beautiful, I feel honored when they open their soul to me and let me capture their beauty on film. They truly are “dreamy” 🙂

    Your writing is lovely, your messages dear. I will be back.


  4. I have recently started dreaming more vividly and I remember more dreams when I wake up. I decided this was healing me, and it did also lead to some day-time healing experiences too.

    I love the name Amaryllis and this is so serendipitous. I wrote a fairy story about six years ago where my fairy character had the name Amaryllis. I love how your Amaryllis is so strong and energetic and magical. It’s wonderful that you named your blog after her.
