a dream deferred...



What happens to a  
dream deferred?
Does it dry up
Like a raisin in the sun.....
......Or does it

explode?

Never thought of this! A dream deferred. A night time dream? Or a life dream? Or both? I night time dream: this may be fiction fodder, gypsy. Thanks!

Dream deferred? Can't think of that unless one consciously tries to do so through their unconscious intentions.

The posts are quite dreamy these days Jenean.

Lovely dreams of joy, courage and goodwill to you who inspires us with these quotes on dreams.

Dream on.

hey susan - sometimes i have dreams that are not happy ones so i wake myself to end the dream - sometimes i have great dreams and awaken for some other reason but want to continue that dream so when i go back to sleep i tell myself to start my dream where i left off - or sometimes i don't have time to go back to sleep right then so i "defer" finishing my good dream - gee does any of that make any sense? at all???

anyway - yes, let's do: DREAM ON!!!!!!
