Why Dragons?

I found myself attracted to dragons lately to the point I began drawing them.
A dragon showed up in a meditation a few weeks ago, completely unbidden. In fact, I was trying to meditate on unicorns.
The reason is quite simple. In my current WIP my main character wanted to be transformed into a deer temporarily, but became a unicorn instead.
During my unicorn research I found some meditations. It seemed like a good idea to try one.
I did, but when I tried to visualize it I got a dragon instead. Since then dragons commonly show up. I've grown quite fond of them.
In the past I was indifferent to them. While they are fine creatures they had limited emotional impact on me.
Now I think they're the best and draw them almost every day.  They're showing up all around me. Ads for dragon fruit jump out at me. I bought a book about dragons. I see mention of them constantly.
In general, they are making themselves known to me. Spiritually this means they want to be in my life.
I like to think my drawings encourage them and make them feel welcome.
Usually I stick to simple lines, but the other day I decided to colour my drawing.

It was okay, but I wanted it brighter so I scanned it and played with some photo editing programs.
The result may seem a bit garish, but it is what I wanted.

The dragons haven't made it clear to me why they are visiting in my meditations, but that's fine.
I'm happy to have them, and happy to wait.

What a cool mind. I rarely remember dreams or visions and rarely have them as well. I do like dragons, but do not know why.

Thanks, Tabor. I am sure they like you, too.

You're such a positive thinker. I certainly give thought to the increased presence of real creatures in my life and what that might mean. But I'd probably be more inclined to think that a dragon's presence would be the Universe's way of telling me that I've been dragon my ass for too long. ;)

Oh, that crosses my mind, too, Hilary.

It's not garish to me, it's what i would expect a dragon to look like.

Aww, thanks, Messymimi.
