      Found this illustration — not really a photo? And set it aside for a rainy day. Wasn’t raining….but somehow, it just hit me yesterday. Kind of like the line in the old Frank Sinatra song, “Fly me to the moon…” πŸ™‚

      ….with just a few filters, right? But the principle is the same….to be free to try. To reach for our dreams so they begin to the have the possibility of becoming reality. πŸ™‚ Call me a dreamer!

    If it be dreaming, why not dream big? A lovely bit of whimsey & brevity; nice job.

      Glad you enjoyed, Glenn. Dreams should put smiles on our faces and make our heart race a bit with the anticipation….the possibility to become reality, right? πŸ™‚ Even just a teeny bit of possibility enables the “I shall try” moment!

      Yes, indeed. I think of all those who are in, for example, medical trials. They are the dreamers of hope….as are the clinicians, the drs,, the ones who dare to dream this could be it! πŸ™‚ We should all be dreamers, I think.

    What I would hope happens to me is “open my eyes to untold mysteries”.

      ….and sometimes I think they are there for the seeing…..but perhaps the explanations are in the stars and the moon….

      Thank you, Kay. I’m always happy when the positive rolls from my pen (I always write first in my journal…then transfer to technology). Other times I finish writing and look down and think, oh my goodness, where did that come from? This day, hope wins.
