Fuck you, dreamland

My friend: I got sidetracked back then.  I wish I hadn’t.

Me: Wishing gets us nowhere.

My friend: So true. But that doesn’t mean we have to stop dreaming.

Dreams are different than wishes…somehow dreams are more solid.

    Dreams should never die. Maybe reconfigured. But still defining

    Dreaming is about potential, creating and morphing. Wishing is for something concrete which you may, or may not be able to control. I prefer dreams. Wishing hurts too much.

      “Dream on. Dream on. Dream until your dreams come true…” the Coming true part requires a lot more action than just closing one’s eyes…

        I loved when they used Aerosmith in the movie Miracle — fit the scenario cleanly. XO

    Dreaming is an action word,. We dream of inventions, actual loves, things that materialize because we tend to do or make what we dream. Wishes are very similar to praying, waiting for someone else to do something for you. Dream on, it steers us to what we want or need.

      i’m on the same page with you on the action part of it…wishing seems passive and dreaming more not much more…unless we add the magic of believing in dreams…is belief enough of an action? hmmm.

    I dunno — wishing and dreaming can be very different things — but I think we need them both. Lovely post, Ret.
