It is not true that people stop pursuing dreams because they grow old, they grow old because they stop pursuing dreams.  ~ Gabriel Garcia Marquez ~

Dreams are… this is where most writers would paste a definition from Websters or Wikipedia, but I am not going to insult my one reader that way. You know what dreams are and so do I. We understand that dreams are on the truly specific and scientific level a series of images or hallucinations presented to an individual when in a dream like state IE REM sleep.  Now on a higher level dreams can be looked at as want desires wishes. When Martin Luther King Jr. stood on the Lincoln Memorial and look out over the reflecting pool and give his speech he said “I have a dream that my four little children will one day live in a nation where they will not be judged by the color of their skin, but by the content of their character. I have a dream today!” He was not really speaking about an image of hallucinations or images strung together. He was speaking about wishes desires and hopes. 

If you haven’t read it yet or lately and have time to, you really should read the I have a dream speech. A wonderful speech written by a brilliant man!  I digress dreams are more than images and hallucinations, although they mat start that way they don’t end there.  Joan of Arc the maid of Orleans had dreams. In her dreams she was spoken to by the Arch angel  Michael, Saint Margaret and Saint Catherine. The angels and the saints told the daughter of peasants to support the uncrowned Charles VII in his attempt to liberate France from the English. I have of course another quote from Joan

 “I shall last a year, and but little longer: we must think to do good work in that year. Four things are laid upon me: to drive out the English; to bring you to be crowned and annointed at Reims; to rescue the Duke of Orléans from the hands of the English; and to raise the siege of Orléans.”

Dreams are  visions hallucinations, hope desires and above all else important. We have to dream and look forward to things.  Dreams are important for inspiration and also acoording to this article I read, important to our psychological well being.  They give us a chance to “download and process. So work hard get some sleep and sweet dreams.
