That Moment

Various moments surface when prompted but the process of weeding yields several lighter ones while the heavy ones return to the deep.

Many dreams have come and gone because I'm far too flexible and interested in so many things that the average life isn't long enough to encompass them all.

That being said...the moment arrived a decade ago when I formed a new dream because I discovered that most of my dreams had already come to pass (remember, I'm an adjustable dreamer).

I saw a 'green' house designed by Michelle Kaufmann and fell in love. The thought of living in a cozy, light, clean and environmentally friendly abode lit my fire. Now, I dream of living off the grid in a similar house and producing enough electricity to pay my long-time utility company by sending them a monthly bill.

When that moment arrives, I'll begin seeking new dreams.

dreams illiciting moments.....and then transforming the dream into action. I like this process! We are the creators of our future moments.

I wish you well finding your life off the grid. :)

Adjusting one's dreams often allows room for even better ones. Your piece is a lovely reminder of the flexibility needed in life.

I'm wondering if I can be an adjustable dreamer - find a new dream whenever the old ones doesn't work out.

How wonderful your mind works!

Talking about success is never ending, failure is never final. All the things we dream about and achieve are steps toward our final destination. One dream leads us to another until we're home, until we arrive.

Dreams keep us young because the kids inside us are the true dreamers. We should never stop listening the child's voice because that child holds the key to true happiness. Be grateful.

I wish you well.
