I draw my dreams every morning to help me remember them more easily. Birdsong Dreams I’ll be posting the dream drawings here on a daily basis (or as often as I can). (Bonus: Click on the drawing below of T-Bone & Brother Cornel & something fun will happen!)
Brother Cornel & fictional Hip-Hop celeb “T-Bone” Help Mary Find Her Purse
As I drew my dream this moring, trying to recall the details, I thought it was Dr. Cornel West (author, philosopher & political raconteur) who’d made a guest appearance in my REM sleep. He’s awesome. He’s America’s favorite “black man named Cornel who wears glasses & talks about politics a lot.” He hangs with Tavis. Cool.
Cornell Belcher: “The other political black man” (I have a secret crush on him, by the by. Er… I guess now it’s a not so secret crush)
