everyone dreams but only a few realize their dreams.

We all have the ability…we just don't all have the courage to follow our dreams and to follow the signs. ~ Paulo Coelho I cannot even begin to tell you how exhausted I was last night other than to admit that I completely missed my bus stop (realizing it 4 stops later) and literally dragged … Continue reading everyone dreams but only a few realize their dreams.

thank god even crazy dreams come true.

Katie Holmes claims she dreamt of marrying Tom Cruise in her younger day, as though she knew it was her destiny.  So in honor of this morning's royal wedding, I find myself wondering oh-so-many things (per usual).  Do you think Kate Middleton ever dreamt about becoming a (real) princess?  Or imagined getting married in a castle … Continue reading thank god even crazy dreams come true.

this was just a dream

Besides the occasional celebrity crushes (I had the biggest thing for Grant Hill since his days at Duke) during my adolescence, I would have These Dreams. Big Dreams. Make the World A Better Place Dreams. Paint a Smile on Everybody's Face Dreams.  These Dreams were filled with Hope; Sincerity; Generosity; Beauty; and Love.  Dreams of Saving the World … Continue reading this was just a dream

sometimes i just need to know that i’m on the right path

After a long day that began with a very early morning (3:30 am wake-up call) and a drive back-and-forth to Indianapolis for work at a colleague's house, and influence from Eat. Pray. Love. (I'm sure),  I found myself walking home through the streets of Lincoln Park making small talk with God.  It officially began as I walked … Continue reading sometimes i just need to know that i’m on the right path

memory is the diary that we all carry about with us.

Last night my parents and I decided to spend our 30some dollars to see the movie, Inception, and while we left a little confused (maybe not in a bad way necessary) we were certainly not disappointed.  Has Hollywood redeemed itself by providing us with an innovative, mind-boggling, thought-provoking, visually enticing movie perfect for the dreamers & … Continue reading memory is the diary that we all carry about with us.
