DREAM A BIG DREAM

In this picture: The Dreamcatcher; part of Native American tradition is a symbolic web which when hung above the dreamer filters dreams from the night air, letting only the good dreams through
Dream a big dream. Become a child again. Dream the colorful. Dream the vivid. Dream the impossible
And if you think that there are no dreams left inside you, then shake yourself up. 
Because dreams never die! They're what keep you going when there seems absolutely no reason to
Dream a big dream...

In case you're wondering what prompted these lines, I can only direct you to a wonderful piece of art shared with me by a friend who's always been a pillar of support & sometimes a source of conflict as well. It made me smile and wonder what my dreams would have been like if this chapter called life hadn't happened. If I had still been a child with dreams where anything was possible, madness was good & visions unclouded by reason. Sometimes, just sometimes, let the world we see around us dissolve like paint on a wet canvas. Let us for once see it not for what it is, but for what we'd like it to be. Who knows, our dreams might give us the answers we've been looking for.
