“Dreams of Gingerland.”
When our family was on vacation in Hawaii my daughter and I would marvel at all of the amazing plants. When we would ask the locals what kind of plant it was they would always say, “Oh, it’s some kind of Ginger.” So when we would see an exotic bird or tree or fish we would say “Oh look it’s a Ginger bird or Ginger tree or Ginger fish.” Eventually I had this idea of what a place that was magical in my dreams would look like. Behold “Gingerland.” A place with a bunch of my favorite things and favorite people. Such as Salvador Dali on a tree. M.C. Escher as a Moai statue. My daughter as Sandro Botticelli’s “Birth of Venus.” She is holding the Morning Star. Another name for Venus.
