When Dreams Become Real

When dreams become real —
or suggest that they could be,
are you still dreaming?

You can rouse yourself
or snuggle down more deeply
To keep dreams alive.

Whatever you choose,
you get to live in real life.
Dreaming or awake.


Be ready.

If you pay attention, your dreams offer insight into what thrills, frightens, and inspires.

You don’t have to do anything with what you realize. You can decide that dreams are random scraps left over from your brain tidying up after the day you just lived.

But, you could do something.

Be curious about the dream, wonder why you had this dream now and what it might mean — and follow its lead into adventure.
