Dallas Clayton has created a "very awesome world".
He wrote it for his son. And while I think it's perfect for my 1st graders, it was great to read as a 'can I really achieve all I dream about' adult.
I love day dreaming. I love thinking that something just might happen, but it could totally not happen, too. It's everything, always, on the edge.
I'm working on this with all different situations. I figure, people that walk into every situation thinking they know the outcome, well, they're usually of the the-world-vs-me-attitude & that's rough to get through life with. I know because I've tried it. But, with day dreaming, you never have to walk into a situation with that dread of, 'ohman, i know how this is gonna go!' Maybe it'll go one way, maybe it'll go the other.
It's why the sleep-kind-of-dreaming is soooooo much fun: Flying, talking to animals, riding rollercoasters through new york city... whatever your thing. RK and I often wake up saying to each other, 'man, my dreams were realistic/trippy/intense/weird/wild.' And, depending on the ability to do it any justice in an early morning explanation (or just moving it on into your day dreaming) will decide if we say anymore.
