Dream a Little Dream

 
wikipedia.org - Dreams are successions of images, ideas, emotions, and sensations that occur involuntarily in the mind during certain stages of sleep.[1] The content and purpose of dreams are not definitively understood, though they have been a topic of scientific speculation, as well as a subject of philosophical and religious interest, throughout recorded history. The scientific study of dreams is called oneirology. Scientists believe that, in addition to humans, birds and other mammals also dream.[2] 


I have the unfortunate tendency of refusing to  intentionally dream due to the unlikely hood of a dream coming true . I'm not a life planner . I don't think things such as , "in five years from now I will be, have, etc." . I have lived life more in a "as it comes" type of philosophy . I figure , on expectations equal no disappointments . I'm not good with compliments and I may be the most difficult person to encourage . Not because I'm going Emo or anything, but because sometimes the bad is simply louder than the good . I think that has messed with my ability to dream . Lately, however , I've started thinking , why not ?! Why not go ahead and make a dream list ? If some dreams could come true these would be a few nice ones to live .

 
~ Go to Paris spend a day walking around , eating desserts , shopping and being amazed . Take a cooking class while in Paris and of course visit the Ifle Tower and see it sparkle at night . AND A MUST visit CoCo Channel's apartment....I'm unsure that's even possible .

~ Go wine tasting in Italy . Maybe even pull a Lucy and Ethel and stomp some grapes .

~ Drink tea in England and of course check out Buckingham Palace .

~ Walk the Irish country side . I think it'd be wonderful to do even on a rainy day . Probably fit in a visit to a local pub .
 

I'd love to go back to Africa and visit old friends . My time in Kenya was amazing . One thing I'd love to do again is another over night stay at Massai Mara . Where else do you hear lions and tigers as you sleep ?!

I'd love to spend some time on the West Coast . A trip to Seattle , land of Starbucks and Nirvana . A walk along the beach in Cali and lets be real..... I need to see Beverly Hills . I realize I'll never be able to afford one thing in the 90210 , but I just need to see the abundance of designer stores with my own eyes . Have a "Pretty Woman" moment , movie quote -  "big mistake. BIG mistake!" . I hope to return to NYC some time . I think the fall would be a lovely season to see in NYC  . See a broadway show , visit the Statue of Liberty , OBVIOUSLY see the building that represents the FRIENDS apartment and maybe a few other things .
I think my list is unending and going to be ever changing . But I believe it's a good idea to have a list even if these dreams never come true . My dreams of course involve more than travel , but I'm not ready to share those yet . What do you dream of ? Where have you gone that you'd like to return too ? If you could go anywhere where would it be ?
