Monday Morning

40 Day Dream

"Well I been sleepin' for 40 days
I know I'm sleepin' cos this dream's too amazing
She's got gold doorknobs where her eyes used to be
One turn and I learn what it really means to see...

Hey I been sleepin' for 60 days
Nobody better pinch me, I swear I'd go crazy

She's got jumper cable lips
She's got sunset on her breath
I inhaled just a little bit
Now I got no fear of death now..."
-40 Day Dream, Edward Sharpe & the Magnetic Zeros

A little background information on the group--

Edward Sharpe is an extraterrestrial being who was sent to Earth to help and heal humanity, however, he continually distracts himself from his mission when he falls in love... Lucky for us, he also makes great music! The band is planning for a second album in the near future, as well as solo projects from both Alexander (aka Edward Sharpe) and Jade.

Dreams and Character

You cannot dream yourself into a character: you must hammer and forge yourself into one. -Henry David Thoreau

She Comes to Me in Dreams

From the Great Lake Swimmers, here is a really happy, genuine song that sings of love and dreams and embodies the happiness of pre-summer- that we are hopefully all experiencing on this gorgeous Saturday. You can see how deeply they are feeling the music they are playing, how authentic they are. They close their eyes and let it flow through them. It's almost as if they are dreaming while playing!

Check out their website (linked above) for tour dates and album information. If you dig this song, you will love their others--

The Meaning of Life

Perhaps you have seen those little gift books, the type you find in the queue at Borders or Hallmark, with little clever anecdotes or quotes about big-picture-type things, like sisterhood, mothers, teachers, golfing as a lifestyle... or the meaning of life. A good friend of mine suggested I borrow one that someone close to her had given her, and I read it with increasing happiness. I am hardly exaggerating when I say that each line was full of wisdom and inspiration. Please read the following exerpt once or twice and really let it sink in...

"It's incredibly draining to live through the day doing something you really don't enjoy or even care about. But if you follow your dreams, at least you will exhaust yourself doing what you love most...But best of all, ...you will inspire someone to go after their dreams, and that, my friend, is how you change the world!" -Bradley Trevor Greive, The Meaning of Life

Suze Orman on Dreams

Suze Orman was on PBS last night, giving a lecture, as well as involving the audience in a Q & A; various priceless points were made. (Who says there is no such thing as educational television?!) She was promoting her new book, The Money Class, and she talked about many of the things she goes into much greater detail in the publication, which all revolve around the American Dream.

Go to her website and watch the video about The Money Class. You will see how she plans to aid those who read her new book in creating their New American Dream out of the old and dead American Dream...

"We need to live in our truth. That's what dreams are made of."
-The Money Class, Suze Orman

Lately His Dreams

"Lately his dreams had taken him to the small village in Iceland where he'd grown up. To the jetty and the mountain behind the village. He had no idea why and didn't think his dreams were of any significance." -Walking into the Night, Olaf Olafsson
