Dreams: For Cindra, Diesel and Egan

It's true. Life COULD be a dream.

What dreams have you had that you have made come true?

What dreams do you still have that you still believe you can make come true?

And the hardest question: What dreams did you once have, but have given up on?

Crap! I had originally posted Green Day's "Boulevard Of Broken Dreams" and even cut and pasted the lyrics. I wanted something about dreams, not a morose loner song. Sheesh! This one is much better:

(Party on, Garth! Party on, Wayne!)

Ah, that's very mignon of you Gawpeaux. A French version of Cars. I guess I can stop harrassing you on the various blogs you frequent. Kisses?

Egan: There's nothing I like better than to be called a steak. Does that mean "tender?" I always just thought it meant "small and very expensive." What the hell are you doing up at this hour? Practicing for feedings?

Yes. Kisses.

Nice to see you 2 boys getting on. I don't do dreams, according to wifey I'm not a romantic, which is probably why. I suppose the nearest thing for me is the desire to retire and get away from it all, but as a realist it aint gonna happen (not for a while anyway!)

Dreams.. Without them what are we? We are our dreams. It is up to us to live them, make them lucid and tangible and worthy.
I am living my dream, and once I figured out where I was in the dream and what control I had over outcomes, etc...I work consciously to create a more beautiful dream each day.
Years ago I "saw" myself doing exactly this, building a spa, running it, doing some hands on work, some management....it's all happening. Now I have my sights set on a school, I have a large building that I hope to turn into a school for aestheticians. I will do it.
Thanks Gawpo, great food for thought post.
Your photos in the previous post make me want to tackle my dream even sooner....

Dream Weaver!! Oh, the memories this song brings back...my friend and me driving downtown on Saturday night with our windows rolled down singing this at the top of our lungs. Man, we freaked people out.

Why are those cars talking in French? Who speaks French anymore? Oh...wait. Nevermind.

Now I want to go back to bed.

I've had the same dream since I was 8 years old. Its getting closer to coming true every single day. Smaller dreams included a husband who loved me and 5 kids - done. Right now I'm dreaming of a hot fudge sundae with two marachino cherries....

Bazza: Yes. I too dream of retirement. We can go at 50 if we have 20 years' service. We can go at 55 with no limits on prior employ in the field. I am enjoying the work still. And the benefits. And the paycheck. And the great schedule with four day weekends.

Gee, I hope Egan and I aren't made up so much that he no longer flips me crap. I work hard for that.

Blue TSG: Good dreaming, Sistuh. You paint the picture I was looking to inspire with the post. The difference between just wanting (desiring) something to happen in life, and that little cordoned off arena of excitement in the heart that comes with a dream is what this is all about. The dream to build a school; the dream to make a difference in the lives of others. Yeah. So yeah. Thank you for dining here on this.

Arm: I had no idea what that Green Day song was saying. I can never hear the lyrics. I even posted those lyrics before reading them. When I got to the end, I was all like, Yuk--this sucks. It was depressing. I quickly backed it all out and went with this favorite about dream weaving.

Logo: Truly livin' the dream.

Kat: You are talking about the Pan dream. The biggie. Nice. I love hearing that. Mine have always been little segmented attainments. The sense of vocation is what drives our striving to make the dream come about.

I have dreams that, someday, I'll have sex with Marina Sirtis.

Malnurtured Snay: Your unconscious has excellent taste. But if you are dreaming it, and she is prescient, doesn't that sort of mean that it's already happening? You know...in a sixth sense?

I dreamed my MuNKi was kissing another woman last night. And I was sitting there trying to decide whether to play it cool or what.

"I used to be able to remember all my dreams," she said REMiniscently.

The hardest dream to let go was "until death do us part," but it became a whole lot easier when death almost did part us and he left me unconcious on the bathroom floor (Brown Recluse bite).

The dream I live daily, is making a difference in the lives of children -- they are our future.

Candace: Now we're gettin' somewhere......

That is totally all completely about how you are longsuffering, sometimes to a fault (which you wind up blaming yourself for). And that there are inside each of us, sirens that beckon us to look the other way when our instincts clamour "foul." You trust deeply. So deeply, in fact, that it is at first impossible to believe that what you are seeing is somehow not supposed to be. It isn't of course, and you very quickly snap to, obedient to a well cultivated honor to self.

That will be five cents, please.

Quilly: It took a spider bite to which you had made no promise to finally put aside the snake to which you had given your heart. Sometimes that's just how it is when we give so large.

Due to your suffering long, the consult is on the house.

Gawpo,You rock! I love both the videos you posted.Yep--you score brownie points with my son too--for the cars one.(he loved the movie (In English, not french)--I havent watched it)
I liked the concept of a 'dream weaver'.Most of us look for it in others.The magic happens when we find it in ourselves.

Loved these lines

"I've just closed my eyes again
Climbed aboard the dream weaver train
Driver take away my worries of today
And leave tomorrow behind"

Ps: Oh, BABY! We are so cookin' now. So true. You climb aboard. You leave behind. You advene (go/come toward). You get on board that train and take the journey. We are the driver of our dreams, but "God" puts us right with wanting to move toward what helps us make most sense.

I saw Cars on November 20th.

Atul's emails were so good. Yes, he says, I most certainly DO know what rain is. And then he explained how it is formed in the clouds. I am a beaming Uncle Gawpo.

lol.. This is the same video I had picked out for my Muse Art.

Not much time to dream in the moment of now.. I simply try to make a difference every day... although I am also working towards goals... which could be considered dreams in black and white, no?

Aawwww ... I heart the Gary Wright song.

I even paid the $ on iTunes to have it.

Yes, I am a dork

Katie: The dream propels you. The dream compels you.

Somewhere Joeaux: We can assume, then, that have already located Nor, Sou, and Eas. Good. Only one to geaux.

Snavy: We dorks must stick together. It's all about the hand waving that Wayne and Garth do on the show.

Party time. Excellent.

Oh, the last question that you said was the hardest was really the easiest. I'm giving up on love. It's a dream, a myth... yep. Oh, and Cindra made me give up on the dream of the Easter bunny when I was 4 or 5... The story involves a sand dune in Newport and is actually kinda funny. :

At Wednesday, February 28, 2007 at 7:11:00 PM PST , Blogger Gawpo said...

Brookie: I want to hear that sand dune story. Giving up on love? Don't do it! Don't do it! You can feel like that for now, though. It even sounds tempting. But don't do it!

Like my mom used to say: Don't give up on love; give love on up. (?)

If you really want to hear the sand dune Easter bunny story, it's posted on my blog now so feel free to go read it.
