Realizing a Dream

"The key to realizing a dream is to focus not on success but significance - and then even the small steps and little victories along your path will take on greater meaning." -Oprah Winfrey

Blood and Roses / Et mourir de plaisir

I love this dream sequence.  It is so well done and dream-like.  Reality is just a bit... off...

Jeff Buckley / Dream Brother

This is an amazing song by Jeff Buckley.  An absolutely beautiful live performance!  The lights are dim and pastel, it's slightly smokey, and the audience is completely captivated.  No stray sounds, no rowdy behavior; it's just Jeff and his supporting musicians.  I love how calm he is; the music just pours out of him.  And listen to that voice!  There is no questioning this is what he was born to do.

More on him later...

dive for dreams

dive for dreams
or a slogan may topple you
(trees are their roots
and wind is wind) 
trust your heart
if the seas catch fire
(and live by love
though the stars walk backward) 
honour the past
but welcome the future
(and dance your death
away at the wedding) 
never mind a world
with its villains or heroes
(for good likes girls
and tomorrow and the earth) 
in spite of everything
which breathes and moves, since Doom
(with white longest hands
neating each crease)
will smooth entirely our minds 
-before leaving my room
i turn, and (stooping
through the morning) kiss
this pillow, dear
where our heads lived and were. 
-e.e. cummings

"What is life? A madness. 

What is life? An illusion; a shadow, a story. 

And the greatest good is little enough; 

For all life is a dream 

And dreams themselves, are only dreams." 

-Pedro Calderon de la Barca
