Without dreams what do we have...a life going by, day by day with little meaning.   Dreams are where we live and plan...without dreams we are just chasing the rainbows...with dreams we can find the rainbow and enjoy the ride.

Don't ever give up on dreaming...and isn't the summer the perfect time to spend a little time daydreaming. Don't forget to bring your notebook and jot a few of those dreams down..and on a day when your feeling not quite up to par...take that notebook out and have a little might be a great time to get started on one of your's to hammocks, sunshine, laughter, light and summer dreams.

Back lighting for my 2BeStill class..lesson 8.  I love how this came out.  The rich tones and the suble back light add to the simplicity of the scene...

“Without leaps of imagination or dreaming, we lose the excitement of possibilities. Dreaming, after all is a form of planning.” 
― Gloria Steinem

“And people who don’t dream, who don’t have any kind of imaginative life, they must… they must go nuts. I can’t imagine that.” 
― Stephen King

Such a beautiful image and uplifting thoughts. I do find summer an easy and perfect time to dream -- and I'm all for continuing to dream -- especially when it comes to my photography. I'm also one for recognizing when a dream has come true and savouring those moments!

Hi Sherry, my sweet Friend, always so nice to see you because you always have such uplifting thoughts...dreaming about photography takes up a lot of space in my mind also..but I've learned that my dreams are bigger than my it's o.k. when I have to save a few dreams for later. I agree, never let a dream that comes true go unnoticed and always give thanks..Happy Tuesday to you.

Lisa...I must have come across my cup late...I see several of the Groupies have either this or the calm..the message on both is appropriate and it's the perfect size for tea.

So late to your dreaming party! This post needs to be printed and made into a wall print...the words and thoughts are pure genius! I love Anne of Green Gables quote: ANNE: "No, I prefer to sit here. There’s so much more scope for the imagination. Thank you just the same. " Imagination and dreams are such a wonderful part of life. I love doing both. Beautiful backlighting on your photo - perfect!!! xxxx

Dreaming is a form of planning... Yes Gloria, it is.
