Why "The Daydreamerie"?

October 1, 2016

 

The short answer?  Because.

 

The real answer?  

Because I didn't know what it would be as it grew up.

I did know that I wanted it to be more than just me.  The fun thing is that it can be ANYTHING!    A shining, collaborative community of creatives (say that 3 times fast) or a fun pop-up class to inspire the imagination of those who don't have access to Art in school... ANYTHING!

 

So I had to pick a name, that could grow into anything.  How hard is picking a name? Hard.

 

My son, Riley suggested daydream.  I mulled it over.

 

Wikipedia says a daydream is "a short-term detachment from one's immediate surroundings, (that sounds nice), during which a person's contact with reality is blurred (in a good, only slightly crazy way), and partially substituted by a visionary fantasy, especially one of happy, pleasant thoughts, hopes or ambitions, imagined as coming to pass.

 

-erie as a French suffix:  Denotes a shop selling a certain product.

 

Daydream-erie:  A space for indulging in happy reverie.  

 

Happy pleasant thoughts? Hopes imagined as coming to pass? Art that supports a momentary visual vacation? 

 

I guess that wasn't really so hard : )
