Daydreaming

I’ve always been a dreamer. Back in school I was notorious for spending longer gazing out of the window than down at my work. And nothing’s changed.

In the past eighteen months I’ve done more dreaming than ever. For a while I actually dared to hope that some of those dreams might come true. And in a place like this, dreams are sometimes all you’ve got.

There is one song which really sums up what it’s like for me, dreaming of a brighter future. You can read the full yrics to Daydreaming by Paramore here, but the first verse is particularly poignant.

“Living in a city of sleepless people

Who all know the limits and won’t go too far outside the lines

Cause they’re out of their minds.

I wanna get out and build my own home

On a street where reality is not much different from dreams I’ve had

A dream is all I have…”

    • Thanks, Karen. But dreams always make me smile most in retrospect. You’d be surprised how many dreams I’ve had which seemed completely normal at the time but ended up being reflected by reality not long after. I even dreamt about someone I didn’t know existed once, only to meet them a couple of weeks later. And I don’t even believe in the traditional concept of being psychic or anything. Now, when that happens, it really does make you smile!
