Hey! Are you...

"... a dreamer?"


"I haven't seen too many around lately.
Things have been tough for dreamers.
They say dreaming is dead. No one does it anymore.
It's not dead. It's just been forgotten.
Removed from our language.
Nobody teaches it, so no one knows it exists.
The dreamer's banished to obscurity.
I'm trying to change all that. I hope you are too...
by dreaming every day.
Dreaming with our hands and minds.
Our planet is facing the greatest problems it's ever faced. Ever. So don't be bored.
This is the most exciting time we could have hoped to be alive.
And things are just starting."
"Before you drift off, don't forget...
...which is to say, remember.
Because remembering is so much more a psychotic activity than forgetting.
Lorca, in that same poem, said that the iguana will bite those who do not dream.
And, as one realizes that one is a dream figure in another person's dream...
...that is self-awareness."

"Behind the huge difference, 
there is but one story of 
moving from the no to the yes.
All of life is, "No, thank you. No, thank you."
Then ultimately it's, "Yes, I give in. Yes, I accept. Yes, I embrace."
That's the journey.
Everyone gets to the yes in the end, right?"
