The Evidence Against And For

I have these dreams, filled with the melodic singles of rock bands, blank pages and words pouring out of plants, rabbits in top hats singing lullabies to lost love, golden dragons circling the grave of their mother, roaring fire and flame in defiance of death, barristers and black knights doing battle in city streets, trains to hell and elevators to heaven, somewhere in an ocean of skin, somewhere in a sky filled with sin (bring them all to bear).

And though you might not have witnessed them, I believe it all to be as real as anything else I've ever seen.

If only everyone believed the whole world would be different.

But you know, I believe. I'm a child, I'll never grow up. And I know there are so many people that do believe, too.

And that's why... that's way there's still hope.

"It all exists, even if it's in your mind. Who's to say that dreams and nightmares aren't as real as the here and now?"

"People think dreams aren't real just because they aren't made of matter, of particles. Dreams are real. But they are made of viewpoints, of images, of memories and puns and lost hopes."
-Neil Gaiman, Sandman

You would love him, and Sandman. Do yourself a favor and read it. It will change your life...it changed mine.

the dreams happen behind concrete walls, in rooms with nothing but a heart and its reverberations that no one can hear.

I love it. This is definitely my favourite. As an incurable dreamer myself, this is the best description and defense of imagination I can think of

I have these dreams, filled with reoccurring tales as old as time, tunes as old as song. Bittersweet and strange, Finding you can change, Learning I was wrong.

(Howard Ashman and Alan Menken)

I have been humbled and I thank you for this from the bottom of my heart, my mind, my body and my soul. You are true Beauty.

That's exactly as I had imagined it.

So real, down to every little detail.

And then I woke up.
