Dreams. Kind of silly to discuss in formal settings beyond their mysterious meanings. What environments are the most encouraging for their inception and their rememberance? Do the people in The Gambia dream about the same concepts and senarios as those people residing in other regions? Is it possible for a person who has never been to West Africa to conjure images of a masquerading character clothed in organic fibers - like the that of the cerimonial Kankurang we have in these parts - independent of the cultures that spawned it? I guess anything is possible nowadays in the era of globalization...even our minds are intertwined. But should that scare us or inspire us?
