So last night I had a very odd and vivid dream. Most of my dreams are very vivid. Something Ive been cursed with since childhood.
in the dream I was slightly older perhaps 35-40... I had a distinct impression I was still avidly doing photography, no one famous but I can remember having done some shows and was teaching photography in some form.
I remember having an accident occur. something fairly tragic.... the exact action that occured I cant quite place, some sort of sickness or ailment. The end result being I lost my eyesight. It was a tremendously emotional thing. I remember feeling complete hopelessness and loss of purpose. So much of my life revolves around my visual perceptions/creations/experiences.
maybe this is an entirely taboo thing to even speak of on a photography forum but then again all lines are meant to be crossed and/or blurred.
Anyone ever thought about this prospect? As to what you would do? would your creative impulses be redirected towards another passion? music perhaps?
just curious if anyone has put thought to something like this
