Dreams – a strange word.

On the one hand it is used to describe thoughts we have in our sleep. These thoughts are often accompanied by images, they may or may not make sense to us, and they are usually forgotten by morning.

On the other hand it is used to describe hopes, wishes, aspirations that we have in our waking hours. They usually aren’t visual, make complete sense to us and they mean so much to us that we rarely forget them.


I saw this picture recently. It’s a clever and pretty way to decorate a small cupboard, but I wasn’t sure about the message.

The little girl seems very happy to float away and to go wherever the balloon will take her. She may get lucky – it may bring her to the place where her dreams will all come true, but the chances are it won’t.

Dreams are great, both types. Please follow them – the world will be a better place if you do. If you want for them to come true however, don’t close your eyes, hang on to a balloon and hope for the best. Make a plan.

I'm Kieran and I play piano. Actually I do a bit more than just playing - I teach others how to play, and I write music, arrange it and host/produce shows.
