Dreams within the Dreams



All that we see or seem Is but a dream within a dream. I stand amid the roar Of a surf-tormented shore, And I hold within my hand Grains of the golden sand– How few! yet how they creep Through my fingers to the deep, While I weep–while I weep! O God! – Edgar Allen Poe.

Edgar Allen is one of my all-time favorite authors – his vivid imagery and dark creativeness is awe-inspiring to me.  In truth, his ideas were visionary.  The idea that our dreams are but dreams within other dreams is fascinating – and a testament to the fact that we are not created to be solo beings.  We have been created to commune with one another – to encourage one another – to build each other up.

Sometimes we dream dreams that no one else can understand – keep dreaming them, for one day, with hard work and a lot of prayer, your dream will come true  – and your dream may just be the dream that inspires someone else to dream, who inspires someone else to dream.

Keep Dreaming!

I am a musician, an engineer, a mentor; my desire is to leave things better than I found them; I am a sister, daughter, wife, mother, aunt, friend. Suicide breaks my heart; Cancer breaks my heart; Human trafficking breaks my heart; Seeing people make bad life decisions breaks my heart. I am thankful for the One True and Living God who saved me from myself and, through His Son Jesus Christ, has saved from my sins; I am confidently persistent, passionately determined and boldly creative so that I may inspire others to live a life that ultimately matters.
