To fulfill a dream, to be allowed to sweat over lonely labor, to be given a chance to create, is the meat and potatoes of life.  The money is the gravy.
    —    Bette Davis
[It normally takes seven to seven and a half years of retirement for the average American to “recover” all of the funds paid into their Social Security retirement funds during their forty odd years of work.  I’m well over half-way there and looking forward to the gravy!    —    kmab]

Inherently, each one of us has the substance within to achieve whatever our goals and dreams define.  What is missing from each of us is the training, education, knowledge and insight to utilize what we already have.

Stay true to yourself, yet always be open to learn.  Work hard, and never give up on your dreams, even when nobody else believes they can come true but you.  These are not clichés but real tools you need no matter what you do in life to stay focused on your path.

If you dream tonight,
Will I come to you?
Will you share my smile,
My Heart,
The joy of my spirit?
If I dream tonight,
Will you come to me?
Will your arms
Ease my loneliness?
Your touch
Smooth my brow?
If we dream tonight
Can we be together?
Can we dance a waltz together?
In great lighted halls,
Or under twinkling stars?
My Love,
I will dream of you
Tonight.

Dreams

Hold fast to dreams
for if dreams die
life is a broken-winged bird
that can not fly.
Hold fast to dreams
for when dreams go
life is a barren field
frozen with snow.

I believe that imagination is stronger than knowledge.  That myth is more potent than history.  That dreams are more powerful than facts.  That hope always triumphs over experience.  That laughter is the only cure for grief.  And I believe that love is stronger than death.
