Today Is a Good Day By Ray Browning
Paperback: $12.00
Prints in 3-5 business days
Dreams are wondrous things. They really are one of nature’s true miracles. We merely close our eyes and be whomever or whatever our imagination can fathom. In our dreams there are no limits,... More > rules or permanent repercussions for poor decisions. Flap your arms and you’re flying. Imagine the impossible and it becomes possible. Obstacles melt into nothing as the horizons spread as far as our mind can reach. We wake up in the morning with a fresh reset. Our nocturnal adventure is nothing more than a slowly fading pleasant memory or at worst a bitter granule of nastiness that eventually is swept aside as nothing more than an illusion. As children we live our dreams while asleep and if we’re lucky enough we bring those dreams with us when we awaken. It’s not until later that our elders or life teaches us that dreams are not reality. When our dreams cease to be our reality.....well that is the time we begin to grow up.< Less
