Nedim Draws writing

At 6:00 AM: Almost every morning, I am gently awakened at precisely six o'clock, greeted by the birth of a new idea. Typically, these ideas are substantial and significant, filling me with joy and a smile as I fully awaken. My sleep patterns are usually stable and ordinary, often punctuated by peculiar dreams spanning intellectual and manual realms. If a dream captivates me during deep slumber and continues to resonate upon waking, I hastily record it in my ever-present dream notebook. I summarize the dream as a concise story, then delve into its visual elements through personal analysis, eschewing reliance on dream interpretation books. Occasionally, I sketch the dream's essence, essentially capturing the seed of an idea. I've begun eagerly anticipating the dawn even in my unconscious state, convinced that my dream content originates from my own mind, providing reassurance and a basis for method development. As days pass, I find myself pondering who might join me in sharing my project and creativity – is it real, or perhaps beyond reality? Ultimately, I consolidate the dream's elements into a unified artistic expression. In this way, I believe I harness the profound benefits of dream interpretation.
