“Those who dream by day are cognizant of many things which escape those who dream only by night.”

I love this quote! Awareness is amazing, it allows us to live our dream!

I never knew Edgar Allen Poe could be so uplifting! I was just thinking this morning as I sat down to drink my tea at my boyfriend's house that my happiest days are those when I'm dreaming... Dreaming is fun, and childlike, and I believe it's what keeps many of us young at heart (and in mind, heck!).
What a great image, too!

Shadow - Isn't it wonderful to be validated for all that time spent staring off into space?! I knew it couldn't be such a bad thing!

Mark - Absolutely. Without dreaming, what kind of reality would we be left with? Dreaming provides me with the hope and inspiration to move forward in this mundane world. It's what helps me see the possibilities.

Megan - It is uplifting... imagine that! But in reality, Poe probably had a darker, more twisted vision when he wrote this - lol! I like that it can be interpreted in different ways.

Hi Larry -Welcome! I think dreaming does come naturally and we should all do it more often.
