Coming Back to Wink Doesn't Mean the End of My Dreams

When I moved back to Wink in 2001, someone blithely stated to me, "Well, I guess you couldn't handle the real must not have any more dreams."

I examined that statement, and clearly this person didn't know anything about me. I hadn't failed in the "real" world and I surely hadn't ceased dreaming. I thought about the many adventures, good and bad, of my life and a smile spread across my face. In my life existed an abundance of wonderful places, people and events, so much so that I felt fortunate.

Rocked a dying baby in Belize to bring him comfort...he gave me empathy and compassion. Managed the International Friends Show in Houston...caught a glimpse into other cultures and peoples. Rafted down the Hiwasee River in Tennessee...gained a release from my fears. Sang my heart out in the musical Hair in New Orleans...willed myself a permanent escape from my inhibitions. There are so many more people, places and events that they are too many to enumerate.

It doesn't matter where you are or where you've can dream a bigger dream. Your vision will ignite you with passion, infuse you with purpose, renew your commitment and motivate you to action.
