5 on Friday - Set 86

Travis at Trav's Thoughts invites everyone to lay down a short set of music that takes their fancies for his 5 on Friday meme.

This week's set is about dreams coming true.

When I was younger, I rode the wave of creative expression with gusto. I acted, I sang, I danced, I stage managed, I operated camera, I assistant directed, I wrote, I directed.

I had no way of knowing what was in store for me. No one does. Life always throws curve balls at everyone's plans, and my life has been no exception.

I went through a lengthy period that really tested my resolve. Ultimately I have to say that life crushed my belief in dreams for a time.

Looking back, there must have been a tiny kernel of hope nestled somewhere among the ruins. Otherwise, why would I have kept trying?

Here's to the power of dreams. In only one year since regaining my belief in my own dreams, so much has changed for me. I wish the same for any of you who may be struggling with a similar lack of faith in dreams.

1 - Dream On - Aerosmith

2 - What You Waiting For - Gwen Stefani

3 - Making Our Dreams Come True - Cyndi Grecco

4 - When You Wish Upon a Star - Cliff Edwards

5 - A Dream is a Wish Your Heart Makes - Ilene Woods

I find sometimes that the dream I dreamed may not have exactly hit on all elements, but it may have led to a better result than the original dream.

Or something like that.

Dreams may be put on hold and even gather dust on a shelf, but they should never be thrown away. We never know for sure when the time will come for us to act upon those set aside dreams.

Great picks, Julia, and a great theme. There are times in life when all we have is our dreams, but we can't let them go.
