here is some imagery, words and music that inspired our new web theme, “magic carpet ride.”
last night i had the most magical dream.
i laid down my head and my eyes filled with beauty. i felt as if i was spinning in the air and when i looked down i was traveling the sky on my magic carpet…
the sun warmed my face as i swept through the air, my long hair glistened in the sun, trailing behind me. my rug danced around the clouds as i struggled to hold on. i was soaring fast, the wind fleeting past me over the sea and mountains, so fast yet so light. the lights of the cities created circles of lights spinning around in my mind. hanging high the stars created enchanting patterns on the streets below.
so far away, yet i could touch the colors of the world.
i was almost engulfed in the waves of the sea below but i flew so fast the breeze took me in. mist in my hair and eyes all the while spinning lights burned into my eyes creating color on the ocean floor.
i woke with the essence of my dream still in the air around me. when i woke everything came to life. deep passionate colors, exquisite tiles… so inspired i reached for my paintbox drawing from the energy, passion and memories of my magical ride.
i started to paint the patterns of the lights below me. i painted the beauty i saw in the moroccan landscape below, the patterns the tiles made in my eyes. the colors of my dream so bright yet muted by the sea. painting with watercolor my magic carpet patterns, persian rugs and textiles.
my dream is to never be forgotten…i will never let go of this magic carpet ride.

and here is a playlist i put together using some of the songs that inspired our creative team, as well as some that this theme brought to my mind.
on a cloud of sound i drift in the night
any place it goes is right
goes far, flies near, to the stars away from here
