I am in awe of Dorrie Joy’s paintings. She is such a dreamer and manifester of beautiful beings with her art. So the children love the paintings she has given us for the Nandita’s Dream book. They want to know does Amon (the wise elder) have grandchildren. How does Tess (the green girl) merge with trees. Is this story true? I say what do you think? Some yes, some no.
Salassie talks about that at the end of the book. Michael asks “is this story true?”
“as true as any dream and our dreams make the world,” answers Salassie.
Salssie is the Rainbow Butterfly Man, the whistling shaman, the storyteller.
Here is a closeup of part of the painting.
