Dreams can come true!

If you work hard enough, and stay focused, and stick to your guns. Yadda yadda yadda. Yes yes yes, this is all true. But that’s not what I’m talking about.

Ever have some crazy totally messed up dream? Something so screwed up that it’s a la the movie Insidious? Well – it can come true! Have you seen Insidious? If yes, you might be confused about my excitement because that movie was frigging scary. Why would anyone want that to be true?

Here’s my point. **just take a look, it’s in a book**

Any dream you want to come true can. Read about it in a book already written, or better yet, write it yourself. I had the most crazy screwed up dream the other night. And I woke up and told BV about it and wrote down what I could remember. Even the parts that didn’t make sense, like a cat adoption center in a swank, trendy restaurant. Because that dream was crazy-awesome-scary and I can NOT wait to go back there. To explore the deepest resources of my subconscious and get it all on paper for some freaky deaky fiction.

There used to be a time, like last week, where I doubted my ability to be creative. I was too “grown up” too “sensible” too “practical” to tap into that part of my psyche. And then I remembered, I did that once before. In grade school, my friends and I used to write stories. After we discovered The Hobbit, there was…. the Hitchhikers Guide to the Galaxy – a simple text that suggests dreams, as messed up as they are, make great fiction!

So here’s to me, embracing my inner Zaphod Beeblebrox. Things are about to get crazy.
