Geisha In My Dreams

Today I went to bed at 4 am, could not sleep until at least 5 am and was thrown out of bed by my son at 6 am. At least I could remember the dream I had.
"Never stitch (draw) the river running towards you, as long as you don´t have a master."
I was a japanese lady sitting somewhere outside and stitching a nature scene. Then an old woman or maid ran to me and grabbed my stitching frame and turned it around nervously. She told me that as I didn´t belong to any master I was not allowed to stitch the river flowing towards me. Instead I would have to stitch it flowing away from me.



Any ideas or explanations?

No real interpretation from me, but it must have something to do with your direction in life - perhaps.
Did you do this drawing in one day?

It took me about 1 to 1.5 hours. Actually only the design of the kimono took a long time.

No interpretation. A great drawing though! Very well done. Love the kimono patern!

The drawing is beautiful. No idea what the dream means.

Well, I know that this post is old, but I've just found your blog.
Only idea-explanation that I could think of is that something is going to change in your life soon, and you're not sure that you're could handle it by yourselve (and/or that you're doing everything right).
And BTW, lovely drawing!
