How often are your dreams cluttered with reality?

An Awesome Book is an exhortation to dream big. It imagines watermelon sailboats and rocket-powered unicorns. It warns about some people who don’t dream big. If they do, it’s about things that already exist and are boring like cars.

I encourage you to take a moment for creative practice. How often have your dreams lately been corrected in your mind for reasons like “that’s not practical” or “the world doesn’t work that way?” Then we alter them to be a practical dream, and it gets ignored because it’s not something we want enough to return to. Without the belief (or the creation of it in your head) that the wild exists somewhere, the world is a sad place.  A good dream stays alive on its own, without too much discipline and editing.

Try lifting the restrictions off and seeing what you come up with.
