When the world demands
More from you than you can stand
Hold fast to your dreams
Your haiku speaks to me especially. Many thanks for wise words. 🙂

Hi Cyril, good advice, but will we have time to dream?
Hi Elisabeth, I believe one must takes time to do such things or runs the risk of missing out on life. 🙂 The question, IMHO, is more: “do we know ourselves well enough to know what our dreams truly are?”
A good one. One thing that is ours regardless of all else is our dream or dreams. For me it is an escape I can go to when the stress of the world begins to hit with intensity. As you know I write. Even when at a doctor’s office and things are a . . . bit unpleasant and I feel like I just can’t take it any longer I go to my writing. What is that next scene I want to work on? What about that problem I was having with that part of a transition? One dream in turn leads to another dream and another and another. The dreams outnumber the stresses of the world if one sat down and started thinking about them. If we put our energies into making our dreams come true instead of focusing on the stresses that we really have no control over, imagine how fewer stresses there would be in our lives.
Well said, Ron! If we fill our time with things we love to do, there’s less time to stress!
