Thoughts - December 22, 2016

“Those who dream by day are cognizant of many things which escape those who dream only by night.”
― Edgar Allan Poe, Eleonora.
It was years before I grew up and realized everyone didn't 'day dream' - or at least some not as much as others. For a writer, is the line between dreaming and action simply in the act of putting the story down on paper? What about a scientist who imagines the paths of cells and DNA going one way and another before starting an experiment? Surely musicians are often imagining new tunes in their minds. Or romantics - visualizing the possibilities of relationships. Explorers? Even the practical business person must have dreamed big dreams before taking the first step. But then do they stop their daydreams and put all their energy into making their dreams come true? How much we don't know about how and what others are thinking! - Beth Almond Ford
