Dream a little dream...

This month i am participating in the A-Z Blogging Challenge.

i thought i'd have trouble finding the time to blog every day, save Sunday, for this challenge, but what i'm struggling with more is coming up with what to write. What a surprising turn of events. Anyone who knows me even fairly well knows i love to talk, and am almost never at a loss of what to say.

For some reason, "D" did not come easily. Sure, i thought of plenty of D words, but words beginning with D do not alone make for a good, readable post.

But, there is one very important D word: Dreams. As cheesy or cliche as it may sound, dreams are so important. You have to have dreams. Without your dreams, how would you know what goals you want to work towards? There are plenty of people out there who'd just love to crush your dreams, mostly because they've given up on theirs ever coming true.

i still carry around dreams from years ago, dreams that appear as if they'll never come to fruition. Nothing in my life points to them being a possibility, even in the distant future, but i'll not let them go. Without our dreams, our world would be empty. Without dreams, we'd never have realized manned flight, or the Sistine Chapel's painted ceiling, or even the birth of a nation called America. i know, this sounds like a bad Hallmark card, but the thing is, it's true.

Don't ever let loose your dreams. Don't ever let someone kill your dreams, or tell you you're a fool for dreaming such ridiculous things. Dreams are the mind's playground, and can lead to some amazing, never before heard of discoveries. Without dreams, our days would feel empty, but with them, life is ripe and rich and full, and the fruit is there for the picking, if only you believe.


  1. Well said! Although some of my dreams haven't come to fruition and/or did, but then went the way of the dodo, they have lead to other dreams that did. I may have lost my little cabin in the woods, but look what I got in exchange! The love of my life and a way to make art for a living! And, you never know... there might just be another cabin in the woods somewhere in the future. ;-)

  2. Great post. Thanks for the inspiration :)

  3. I love your bird artwork.

    I do love the word "dream," too. It was funny when I was making jewelry to sell, I didn't realize how many pieces I'd created that had some variation of that for a title: Dream, Dreaming, Dream On, Sweet Dreams . . . (Come to think of it, I don't know why I didn't choose this word for the A-Z challenge!)
