On the Wings of Dreams

I confess that I am a dreamer.  As my mind wanders down different paths, amazing sights play out, ideas that are different from the usual, This morning as I was having coffee on my back patio, I was thinking of "dreams", those elusive flashes of imagination that inspire, amuse, challenge.  Some dreams are just small nuggets, others are soaring thoughts towering like cumulus clouds.
My camera captured the contrast. A tiny humming bird flutters, as a huge jet soars over head.
Here are a couple of my favorite dream quotes--

Cut not the wings of your dreams,
for they are the heartbeat and the freedom of your soul. 
~ Flavia ~ 
A life without dreams
is like a garden without flowers.
~ Author Unknown ~

Hold fast to dreams 
For if dreams die
Life is a broken-winged bird
That cannot fly.

Hold fast to dreams
For when dreams go
Life is a barren field
Frozen with snow.   
~Langston Hughes~

Dreams are the sparkle of my mind, the giggle in my soul. They spur me to try new things, change the way I perceive ideas--to do things my way.
