I have a dream

I dream of writing songs. I dream of being in the company of musicians and write songs and watch them become music, watch them float in the air, in the sea, and in the pores of the soil and sand. I want my words to add, however infinitesimally small, a meaning, to sunshine and salt, to winter breeze and the taste of sea water. I dream not of a name, no, thats not what I want. I just want my words there, out there in the world, on their own, without my shadows, but with hidden bits and pieces of me, and all that I am, in a secret way. I dream of a day when the sun will shine through a window and someone like me, someone I've never met, in some place I've never been to, would recite a few of those words, with sighs and pauses, with the sun in his face, and gratefulness in his heart.

So good to have dreams and to believe until they become a reality. I hope your dream does.

words live long past us.....you are a gifted writer...just keep putting them out there.....somewhere someplace they will grab hold, root in and live on in the heart and mind of others...

What a wonderful dream. And, you know, I think everyone who became a success at something began with a dream. Thus, you are on your way.
