"Go confidently in the direction of your dreams!
Live the life you've imagined!
As you simplify your life
the laws of the universe will be simplier."
Henry David Thoreau

It is time to move beyond inquiring of myself and really gather the answers; what do I imagine of my life, what are my dreams? After 49 years I suppose the time has come to give myself permission to do more then just sort of dream. Part of me consoles another part, "it's a good thing you didn't dream too much or pursue your dreams as how disappointing would things have been, having had quite a few unexpected interruptions." But isn't that life anyway, always drizzled with interruptions? Giving myself permission to 'dream' has brought up the most silly, yet alarming concern; I don't know if I know how to dream, really dream, imagine, I'm not sure I know how or want to invision, dream of something, anything of which then I will pursue through. This quote struck me with such verve. It seems to be a my call to action, my permission slip. And, it is all in keeping it so simple.
