catching dreams first came to life in 2009, when I chose to follow my own dream and move away from my career in engineering and construction. The aim was simple - help people to achieve their goals, fulfil their potential and live their dreams. At the time, the business focused on providing one-on-one coaching, seminars and training sessions, primarily focused on career planning and leadership transition, for those in technical or analytical professions.
Let's face it, starting a business is never easy, so when an opportunity arose to achieve my dream working at rogenSi, the decision was easy and catching dreams lay dormant.
Today, it's all about making a difference. It's about combining photography, writing, and a desire to inspire that sees catching dreams come alive once more, in the form of a photographic blog. I want to combine the pictures I take, with news, views, thoughts and quotes in the hope that this will inspire readers to think about their own dreams and choose to pursue them.
If you like or have an opinion on the blog posts don't be shy, please comment and start a conversation.
Why catching dreams?
Dream catchers are based on a Native American tradition of hanging a symbolic web over the cradle of sleeping children, to protect them from bad dreams. A dream catcher consists of a circular, wooden hoop, containing a hand crafted web with a centre hole. The bottom of the hoop is decorated with dangling feathers.
Legend has it that dream catchers filter dreams that fill the night air. Positive dreams slip through the dream catcher’s web, gliding down the feathers to the sleeper below. Negative dreams are caught in the web, expiring in the morning when the first rays of the sun strike them.
The dream catcher is believed to be symbolic in a broader sense, holding not only good dreams, but positive visions, ideas and opportunities, to help people achieve their goals and fulfil their potential.
