Day 245/365 ~ It is Better to Have Your Head in the Clouds, and Know Where You Are..Than to Breathe the Clearer Atmosphere below Them, and Think that You are in Paradise [Explored!]
September 28, 2011.
If I could, I would capture clouds down from the skies and keep them in my room.
Carry them around during sunny days in the palm of my hand; store them in a jar and put them on my desk; release them onto the ceiling, so I could go cloud-watching from my own bed; fall asleep peacefully under a cloud canopy.
Dream of perfect, idyllic things like standing on a gently lapping shore with the wind tugging through my hair. Build an escape ladder strung out of cloud strings and feathered wings, ready to be used to run from any strange nightmare. Watch the clouds drifting by, and formulate curious shapes from my bright imagination.
I may not be a full-fledged, optimistic dreamer, because I'm too pragmatic for that; but it doesn't mean that I can't have a dream of my own. Realist, dreamer, pessimist, optimist - does it really matter? No matter who - or what you are, you're allowed to have one. Chase it.
