wikipedia.org - Dreams are successions of images, ideas, emotions, and sensations that occur involuntarily in the mind during certain stages of sleep. 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.
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 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 .
