“All men dream, but not equally. Those who dream by night in the dusty recesses of their minds wake up in the day to find it was vanity; but the dreamers of the day are dangerous men, for they may act their dreams with open eyes, to make it possible…”
– T.E. Lawrence
Hello gorgeous world ❤ How are you? The above quote is my all time favorite quote, mainly due to the fact that I resonate with both sides of the spectrum.
My mind never shuts off, there’s a continuous flow of ideas, thoughts, dreams. Careful attention is taken to organize the chaos whether I write those thoughts in my many notebooks or mentally file them for future reference. Plans sketched out and direction taken to work hard, grind and make those thought bubbles breathe life. Day dreaming is a very dangerous game because the human mind is clear and awake, geared into a full force throttle to make the impossible possible. Day dreamers push the boundaries of their crafts and dare to defy normality.
Those who only dream at night fear defiance which results in fearing differences, change and the unknown. You dream of what you so deeply want or maybe even need, but when it comes time for the sun to rise, you fall back into compliance with the mundane life you’re currently stuck in. The troublesome theory about night dreamers is that consistency never leads to the new beginnings that day dreaming does. It simply leads to a dead end, causing you to give up and turn right back around into the normalcy that’s subconsciously drowning you.
Sunshine lights up truths while the darkness lies.
I dangerously dream with the warmth of the sun or raindrops of the storm. I breathe insomnia and sporadic nightmares by the glow of the moon and sparkle of the stars
Sharpening silence eludes my mind while noise and chaos calm and focus it’s frame.
Defiance is the game I play because I refuse to play Follow the Leader.
I am a dangerous dreamer. How do you dream?
Until next blog…… Love Derra ❤
