The State that I am In

"I was puzzled by a dream, it stayed with me all day in 1995..."

It's plain to see the sun won't shine today
But I ain't in the mood for sunshine anyway
Maybe I'll go insane
I got to stop the pain
Or maybe I'll go down to see Kathleen.

A swallow comes and tells me of her dreams
She says she'd like to know just what they mean.
I feel like I could die
as I watch her flying by
Ride the north wind down to see Kathleen.

Stars hang high above, the oceans roar
the moon is come to lead me to her door
There's crystal across the sand
And waves, they take my hand.
Soon I'm gonna see my sweet Kathleen.

Soon I'm gonna see my sweet Kathleen.

"Love You More," Trespassers William

"All of my songs are for you, all of my songs are sad. Whenever you wake at night, you say that all of your dreams are bad... Give me your tightest arm, give me an 'I love you,' I'll stay awake all night and blow your darker thoughts far from you."

Sound advice from Mark Twain

"Twenty years from now you will be more disappointed by the things you didn't do than the ones you did do. So throw off the bowliness. Sail away from the safe harbor. Catch the trade winds in your sails. Explore. Dream. Discover."

-Mark Twain

Exerpt from Sea Glass

"What do you dream about, Quillen McDermott?"
The question is so unexpected and so direct that for a moment McDermott cannot answer.
"No fair thinking about it," she says. "You have to answer right away."
"Whose rules are these?" he asks, stalling for time.
"My rules, of course." She smiles, crinkling the few wrinkles at the sides of her eyes.
"Don't remember my dreams," he says.
"I don't believe you."
"Why not?"
"I think you're a deep one."

-Sea Glass, by Anita Shreve

To Dreamers Everywhere

To Dreamers Everywhere

And if your own and time betray you

If all you hoped and wrought for does

not come,

Why should that dismay you?

Why should creeping doubt benumb

The leaping pulses of your will?

Have patience and be strong.

Seems your waiting long?

One has waited longer, who is waiting


-Amelia Josephine Burr.
