  • Hi Rachel, Sorry it took so long for me to respond--I just started a new job and I'm still getting my feet wet. Thanks for reposting your dream--it is an amazing dream, and I joined in with the others in offering thoughts about it.

  • Hi Rachel,

    I got your request that members of The Twilight Zone weigh in on your dream in my own business email, but I don't find it in the group anywhere. I did see it on your own blog spot on the Alliance site. However, the best place to post it is in the group--there is a thread that I started where members are encouraged to post dreams. If you click on that thread, a text box will appear where you can cut and paste your dream request. It will be fun to see what members come up with. Thank you!

  • Welcome Rachel! I know you from the AJC site. I think this site DPA may be closer to what you're looking for! Glad you're here.

Welcome to the online Depth community.I think you'll find this a wonderful place to connect with and learn from peers and to share with others who are passionate about engaging the world through soul. I couldn't resist checking out your blogspot and I love the piece you did on symbolism and surrealism. I hope you will continue to update it.

Media people hungry for sensational news created this furor which now threatens artistic freedom.  It all began when a television crew sneaked into the Main Gallery of the CCP and took shots of selected elements of Mideo’s work and immediately showed these clips to a prominent Catholic religious figure for a reaction.  It was a blatant attempt at generating conflict which was good copy and revenue for…

From Religion to Idol Worship

For a week or so, the media and the Internet became electric with debates, discourse, insults and analysis. Christian groups and senators demanded blood. Heads rolled and lawsuits bloomed. Death threats and vandalism followed. And for what?  An artwork.

The point of contention is an installation work by Mideo Cruz titled “Poleteismo,” part of the “Kulo” group exhibition  at the  Cultural Center of the Philippines (CCP) launched on  June 17 to  celebrate…

I Had a Dream….


My daughters were on a street that looked like any other street in San Juan. We were waiting for a tricycle to take us home. Then one stopped before us driven by a nice old man, with a rounded face and cheerful eyes. My girls and I managed to squeeze ourselves into the side car as we began to travel through the streets. 

We suddenly found ourselves inside a very long tunnel but the trip was smooth and fast. Then I saw…
