I wonder if you know…

The photo in the new banner for this blog is a graphic enhanced version of my grandson held in my arms, taken two years ago. I have gotten a lot of positive feedback concerning that photo, that it’s pretty much become my logo.

Somehow the nurturing image of a woman holding a baby seems fitting for the concept of “Keeping the Dream”.

How tender all our dreams are, how beautiful that they should receive our care, our nurturing and protection. And I don’t mean “our” in a rhetorical sense. I mean yours. You, who read these words now. You, who I may or may not correspond with in email, who may live in my town or across the ocean.

I think about all the sorrow in this world. I don’t need to be fixated on sorrow to be moved by it. And I don’t need to cover my eyes to it to stand in awe of the love that exists in this world either.

I wonder if you know how important you are. I wonder if you realize just how unimportant it is to know how much of a difference you can make…and just make it?

I wonder if you will give yourself the gift of risk and allow yourself the joy of serendipity.

I wonder who you are, if our paths will ever cross and in what indirect way we will affect each other’s lives in ways we cannot fathom.

Today I am wishing you well, my stranger who has graced this page, my brother or sister in this family of humanity.

Keep your dream. Live it. Embrace it. It has a life of its own that it wants to share with you. Like most partners, it may not look like what you’ve always imagined it to be. It might only be a very quiet dance, kept away from the sunlight, coming out only at night. Dance in the moonlight. Dance to your love’s pleasure.

Every dream is a seed to a better world. Keep that dream alive in you. You are more important than you know.
