To the Dreamers: As artists in this ever changing world, we have chosen to share our voices and ideas through words, music, and images; “We are the music-makers, And we are the dreamers of dreams, Wandering by lone sea-breakers, And sitting by desolate streams. World-losers and world-forsakers, Upon whom the pale moon gleams; Yet we are the movers and shakers, Of the world forever, it seems.” We have nothing, know nothing, nothing happens unless first a dream. When we dream alone, eyes shut, sleeping, the dream is at first an illusion. But, it is when we dream together, as artists and writers, awake and out loud, sharing the dreaming, that we can make a change in our reality. Rattapallax would like you to send us your dreams on paper, in poetry, fiction, film, music, photography, and paint, “To the old of the new world’s worth; For each age is a dream that is dying, Or one that is coming to birth.” (From “We Are the Music Makers” by O’Shaughnessy)
