David Archuleta ~ Expanding the Vision

Posted by Angelica on Friday, May 23, 2014

Been doing a lot of thinking about life the past few days. I reconnected with some family and friends I had kind of lost touch with for a while. That’s so easy to do and they were feeling the need too, but like me, just didn’t make the call. Then I set up my studio in a spare room, got out my paints and brushes, and placed before me a huge three foot by three foot white empty canvas. It’s a scary sight but exciting too! Made a lot of absolutely horrible sketches on paper and felt really good about it! Then I got into bed and the tweet came from David.  I lay in the dark with my phone and read the whole article. It was just what I needed to hear.

I want to share a dream I had earlier this week about David. In the dream I was sitting at my computer on the YouTube site, and a new music video appeared with him striding forward smiling. It was all in this cool bluish filter effect and there was a nice beat and just when he came really close and I thought he was going to sing, he stopped and said, “Wait.” Then blank screen!! In my dream I yelled, “Nooooooo!! What are you doing? You have a MAGNIFICENT VOICE!” Then off camera, (or off dream) I heard a loud voice say to me, “STOP! You are looking through a pin hole.” I saw a tiny aperture appear in the distance and through it I could only see a small part of David’s face. All around was this vastness I couldn’t see past but in my dream I felt so much was going on back there. Then I woke up.

It set me to pondering. What do you think is going on beyond our view? And is it, as in my dream, bigger than we imagine?

    When I see David like this, it reminds me how much he lives in the moment.

    Good morning!

    Ray, I have had a few strange prophetic dreams too. Hope this is one of them!

    Well, it’s not a meat dress but I like where he’s going with the real fur scarf. Can’t get in trouble with PETA cause it’s still alive. lol.

    Love the graphic tee shirt of Mr. Rogers. I could absolutely see David doing a show on YT like his. Walks in… hello and welcome to my neighborhood! Shares a thought for the day and maybe a recipe, then sits down to the piano. Let’s do this!

  4. Angelica said

    LOLOL! He could sing the whole show like this!

    Angelica,

    Love the dream!

    Ok, I am going to give my interpretation of it: I think it represents the view from here (as a fan) vs. the view from the other side (David).

    We see the small picture, we see David, straight on, we are singularly focused. David, on the other hand, must see and work on it all, all aspects of what must happen behind the scenes in order for his career to move in the direction that he wants it to go.

    We are looking at one thing, him, while he must see and investigate many things so that our one focus can eventually come into view again.

    haha That probably makes no sense to anyone else. But that’s where it took me. :)

  7. djafan said

    Angelica, David’s deep tweet sure had some interesting reactions. Like I told you last night I think the complex David that left came back more complex. You said it’s a good thing for songwriting and I concur :)

    First I want to see the canvas, very curious.

    And about that dream, as I read it I felt all kinds of emotions but the last one shook me.

    “STOP! You are looking through a pin hole.” I saw a tiny aperture appear in the distance and through it I could only see a small part of David’s face. All around was this vastness I couldn’t see past but in my dream I felt so much was going on back there. Then I woke up.”

    WOW! I believe that things are going on, really do and the excitement grows each day though with patience :)

    David still David as complex as he is you could see in his instagram that his sense of humor is still there. Who does a live cat scarf? hahaha It looks good though lol

  8. tawna21 said

    Angelica, I would have awakened in a cold sweat from that dream you had! I, like the others here, feel the complexity of David is getting even more so. Not that he is doing it on purpose to be creepy (that sounds like Eddy on Leave It To Beaver). I just think he has more purpose to what he is doing now. I still think that it was partially there before he left, but contracts were not allowing the real David to happen. His spirit and desires have matured and he is more in control.

    Ray, dreams do come true!

    MT, I really like this >> ‘ I think it represents the view from here (as a fan) vs. the view from the other side (David). ‘ Me too.

    DJA, I also think things are happening. The tweet from Stephanie Mabey’s dad says that things are happening. Again, patience is a virtue. Dang it, David!!! You’re going to have us all showing patience at the top of our list of virtues before this is all said and done!!!! :D I’m still working on it. ;)

    Abrra, thanks for the photo of the latest in fashion wear. Only David Archuleta could get away with that look and have us like it. :)

  9. A lovely writing Angelica!

    I will tell you about the biggest surprise to me in all of these years, over all the speed bumps. I am amazed by the total commitment that some fans have made towards supporting David through all that happens, even when he does not respond directly. Really, his fans are amazing.

    My computer fizzled out on me last night and I went to Future shop today hoping that something could be done for it. But no, the time had come to buy another so I did. They said to leave my present lap top there and they would list all that I had on it for me to choose what I want saved.

    The last picture I saw before closing it was the screen saver with the painting of the young man in Jerusalem. I had a hard time leaving it there with all the pictures, music and writings etc. that pertain to the last few years involving David.

    Crazy things go in in our minds, but for good reason, perhaps we have fear of losing and we have good reason to think that way sometimes.

    Anyway, tomorrow is another day and maybe it will be amazing!!

  11. Is David going to be attending BYU?

  12. djafan said

    There dem is really good selfie of the friends, Mammoth and Saber Tooth hahaha. Oh David. Not safe to go to twitter lol. This selfie has had some reaction.

    I think I see a little more David through that peep hole Angelica, it’s looking pretty interesting.
    :)

  13. bebereader said

    I love ‘dem’ museums too. I think David gave me gave me the inspiration I needed to pay a visit to The Museum of Natural History. It’s been too long. This guy is full of surprises! Just when you think nothing is doing, he pops up with something new!

    I’m not so good at analyzing other people’s dreams. I’m of the belief that the same dream means something different to each of us, depending on our life experiences.

    But since I find Angelica’s dream quite fascinating and I am analytical by nature…

    Could the tiny aperture symbolize the distance we feel from David, until he shares what he’s working on?

    Could the ‘blue hue’ symbolize one of David’s actual videos, “Rainbow”, which had sort of a blueish tone?

    And the word ‘WAIT’….duhhhh’snt David have a song of that name? haha

  14. djafan said

    LOLOL!!!! The fanbase is definitely in trouble DJ! I take a nap and I wake up to THAT PIC and “Oh I did.” I think he’s having fun.

  16. Angelica said

    Check out SAz post. TOfan posted that tweet and his response twice and makes a great prediction of her own! *crosses fingers*

  17. MT said

    Dja,
    hahaha Love the tweet and the reply!

    This might sound strange but, the picture of him he posted with “friends” at the museum is the closest I’ve seen him to looking like I thought he would when he got back. Great picture! Somethin’ about that face. And the eyes!!! :D

  18. emmegirl14 said

    Angelica, hope this is one of those dreams too!

    #12 lol dja!

    Do I see a small tuft of hair peeking over that ear?

  19. jans11 said

    Angelica, glad to see your comment show up at the post site! :) My interpretation of your dream is about the same as everyone else. I also think the wheels are turning in the background where we can’t see and “the best is yet to come” like Kari said. It seems as if your subconscious is working overtime! :) Mine has a few times. When David didn’t renew his contract with Jive Recordings, I dreamed about him.

    MT I agree with the photo of David with his “friends”. I think he is putting on a little weight and his hair is growing out. It looks more like David!
    Yes, Emmegirl, I see that hair over his ears too! :)

    Love seeing David having fun with his family and friends.

    Angelica, my favorite part of your dream was the “I felt like there was so much going on back there” part.
    There just might be.
    Last week I had a David dream as well. I dreamed that my sister and I went to Utah (also, we had my cat).
    We went into a few places – a bar, a theater, and a restaurant that had a club attached.
    David was quietly going into these places and singing without notice. For free. This dream seemed to go on and on.
    I remember my sister and I carrying these huge long boxes (Idk what was in them lol)
    and David came out and helped us carry them miles to our car. (through snow) He said this is the dream: “But people still
    like me, right?”
    I know he wouldn’t say that in real life, but it was kinda heartbreaking.
    I don’t remember much more except for the fact that we lost our cat in the theater and later when we got to the car, it
    was my dad’s car, and he was inside waiting. He’s been gone since 2003. Loved having him visit me in my dream. ♥

    Watched the video David tweeted. Interesting quote that I shouldn’t wonder got David thinking of the parallels between mission and golf, only their was no mention of music. That was all David. Insert “music” for the word, “golf.”

    “The thing I love about golf is, it’s up to me. No excuses and so, you’re always accountable to yourself.”

    On another topic, (or maybe it’s music related too?) he was spotted at the airport today.

    I came across this blog by Kate Cabebe (formerly of KSM https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/KSM_%28band%29)

    She give some perspective on being a student and what kind of time commitment college demanded on her life. It seems she was able to pursue several outside interests and a relationship. She went full time, so if David did decide to expand his music knowledge by taking classes, it doesn’t mean he would stop performing. I don’t know what plans he has, but I thought this was worth sharing as it shows what is currently possible for some college students.

    the benefits of college
    Posted on May 20, 2014

    I’ve officially graduated college.

    Four years of good ol’ fashioned hard work and dedication have earned me a degree in Communication with an emphasis in advertising and public relations along with a minor in political science. In those four years, I’ve learned and done so many things that I never would’ve pictured myself doing. Things like taking a math class (I had to take two due to university requirements…. ugh), doing a summer full of paid research (that resulted in my research and paper getting presented in the world’s largest communication conference), living in a dorm, meeting tons of new people, and becoming friends with some truly great professors were just a few of the standout moments of my college career.

    Even with academics, I still had the opportunity to do things I loved like play music (I began playing guitar MUCH more and ended up buying my own), photography, art, DIY craft projects, and read “for fun” books.

    I met my future husband my freshman year of college (surprisingly not at school, but at church) and have been planning a wedding for all of my senior year.

    Being a college student doesn’t necessarily mean that all of your fun/personal time is sucked up into some mysterious vortex. I learned about time and project management and was able to schedule my time in ways where work and play were equally balanced. A skill that will be useful to me for the rest of my life. I figured out my personal limits and abilities when it came to studying, learning, and producing. Most importantly, I realized just how capable I am to be able to handle and tackle new things, even when they seem overwhelmingly huge!

    College gave me some fantastic new skills. I can’t wait to see where I am next year around this time and what I’ll be doing with all the things I’ve learned.

    Happy Memorial Day everyone. So thankful for the armed forces that keeps our country free. My dad was in the Navy and my husband was in the army. He was drafted twice, the second time was after we were married and I went with him to Alabama when President Kennedy called the reserves in because of the Berlin/Cuban crisis.

    #43…Abrra, David was in Los Angeles. There was an open invite to the Fireside there and Shay Butler, “ShayCarl” was the speaker and David sang. Jeannette McCurdy was there too……

    #66…I like ZZ Ward’s sound. She reminds me of Brandi Carlile some. They both have that unique sound. David has really good taste in music! :)

    #67…Ahhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh is right Abrra! WOW! Great pic!

    Also the pic of David and little Lexi. I agree that David is building that foundation, slowly, but surely. :) Lexi is so talented, just like David! ♥
