Carefully camouflaged, on a complicated surface, there is concealed an existence that rests on forgotten dreams. Once a dream has been dreamed, if it hasn't been remembered, it lives on, subtly hidden from view. Memory often becomes dream. Sadly, we lose sight of our dreams as life moves forward ~ many dreams are forfeit. We need to search for those lost memories and dreams the way we would look for a four-leaf clover ~ something precious and unique, tucked away with all our other thoughts.
"The supreme object of life is to live. Few people live. It is true life only to realize one's own perfection, to make one's every dream a reality."
~ Oscar Wilde
