This Year’s Theme: DREAM.

“All men dream, but not equally. Those who dream by night in the dusty recesses of their minds, wake in the day to find that it was vanity: but the dreamers of the day are dangerous men, for they may act on their dreams with open eyes, to make them possible.” — T.E. Lawrence (thanks, Joe Miguez!)

You will have noticed by now that there’s a theme to what’s emerging on the session page: this year’s theme is DREAM. Here are some thoughts to get you going:

dream-imagedream

  • a series of thoughts, images, and sensations occurring in a person’s mind during sleep

  • a state of mind in which someone is or seems to be unaware of their immediate surroundings
  • a cherished aspiration, ambition, or ideal
    an unrealistic or self-deluding fantasy

  • a person or thing perceived as wonderful or perfect
  • experience dreams during sleep
  • see, hear, or feel (something) in a dream
  • indulge in daydreams or fantasies, typically about something greatly desired
  • waste one’s time in a lazy, unproductive way
  • contemplate the possibility of doing something that you’re not or that something might be the case that isn’t…until now.
