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.
