Dream Traveller

Saturday, April 28, 2007
Dream Traveller is a new and mysterious piece of writing by Mark Hill.

Talking about how he came to write this piece, Mark says:

'I read a book by the psychologist, Daniel Nettle, [who believes] that creativity and madness are two sides of the same coin. In the world of paranoia every object or colour can rapidly show itself as an abstract. (I think the same thing happens in the imaginative and creative process.) So this lady [the Dream Traveller] could appear in my dreams or paranoia or creative processes or all of them. She is a source of inspiration, calmness, relief, rescue... indeed, symbolised like a God, but who is she? Where did she come from? She could be someone whom I have loved, an escape from harsh and difficult reality (unfortunately I spent a long time in a difficult condition) or an escape from severe pain (physically and emotionally)...just like a God. But my God is on earth, not in the sky.'
