Life is but a dream, sha boom shabada sha boom sha boom!
I’m going with the “grey” because I think they still are your dreams. Having them happen doesn’t take anything away from what you dreamed of. Unless of course you normally spell the word “gray” which has an aura of men in granite. so you probably think things are pretty cut and dried. I’m normally on board with that, but not about dreams. Conjunction junction, what’s my function?
Did I fix my error?
When your dreams become your reality, they are no longer your dreams.
Reality is a shared experience, while a dream is privately owned. There are shades of grey as well. Dreams realized often inspire other dreams for oneself, or for others. Many dreams were needed in order to build the first radios & televisions. Early explorers dreamed of riches and personal glory as they risked their lives on long, dangerous ocean voyages.
Other dreams led to a shared vision of walking on the moon. Success was realized in July of 1969. There are those today who dream of further adventures in space. Maybe a return to the moon, a trip to Mars, or trek to the stars will be a reality in humanity’s near future. Today’s science fiction frequently becomes science fact over time.
Home ownership, parenthood, and meeting a famous person are worthy dreams also. Each person needs dreams for mental health and pleasure. No healthy dream lacks value. To lack dreams is to lack vision. To lack vision is to lack goals. To lack goals is to lack direction. And to lack direction means that one’s inner vision has been blinded & personal growth has ended. Many (look no further than a rest homes for proof) morn the loss of dream visions to their death.
This is funny. I had thoughts like that after my dream of meeting Taylor Hicks became a reality. It happened so suddenly and unexpectedly that I was floating on air for a week afterward. Although I want to see LiMBO in concert in a better sound venue, have Taylor sign his autobiography and ,perhaps, meet MJ and/ or GC, I totally have the motivation to just move on the the next big dream, but I’m not sure what it is. Outside of seeing my kids graduate from school and be happy, I’m not sure what big dream I have time for! ha ha!
I wrote about it here: http://www.gpiper.org/katiesbeer/category/taylor-hicks/
Scroll 3/4 down the page to see my photo with Taylor!
I think a dream is what you imagne, visulaize or hope as being possible; you ponder it, you massage it, you build on it and hopefully one day realize it…and then it is time for a new dream.
I do think when your dreams of comes true all at once that it takes time to assimilate and you need time leaving the dream for it to sink in and become a reality.
Usually a dream is something that you feel is something very difficult, or impossible, to attain. When it comes true and is realized, it is no longer “unattainable” but is now your life. The dream is now your reality.
If a person’s dream is to meet Taylor Hicks and then they do, it’s no longer a dream because it’s realized and now an experience rather than a dream. Sometimes unrealized dreams are the fuel of creativity. For some, realizing the dream can actually kill creativity as there’s nothing left to aspire to/for. For others, realizing a dream spurs them on to greater creativity through confidence and inspiration.
depends on what you think a ‘dream’ is. is it fantasy or a real goal to reach or some intangible feeling? or is a dream only a dream if it doesn’t come true? mmmmm…it’s a rainy Sunday morning and I’m going back to bed to dream some more…
I’m with Susan. When you stop dreaming, you’re dead inside.
actually, this is funny…..cuz my Mom always told me….when your dream comes, true….it’s time to have a new dream.
And thus, the unspoken Gray/Grey issue reared it’s head.
Wouldn’t it still be your dreams, but a dream fulfilled? Hmm, have to think on this a bit!
