Dear Dream Reader:

 

  • I have been so inspired by your blogs (and then YOUR book).  The way you put IT OUT there and are so honest, and so willing to take the emotional risk of being so honest.  THAT inspires me.  Your humor, I totally get it.  Your life story.  WOW.  I relate to so much, and yet am left shaking my head in awe at the obstacles you overcame.  The letters you write to your son, to inspire him and for him to read one day, are things they should teach in parenting classes.  I think parenting classes (especially in today’s world, should be REQUIRED).  They should include “Marriage” requirement classes as well.  That is my education reform recommendations.
    We talked about Humility tonight in a step study meeting.  “Humbly asked HIM to remove our character defects”-what an amazing topic and the feedback-WOW-  I remembered in an instant flashback of standing in Sedona, AZ at Church of Holy Cross, and taking my step 7 for the first time.
    I have been wondering tonight WHY do so many people blog.  It obviously (as I am learning) takes hours.  I gave up face-book over a year ago because of the time I spent on it.  So, to be a successful blogger, do you have to also be connected to social media?  It also appears, that many (successfully vs unsuccessfully) attempt to make a living, or at least money by their blogs.  Not “pie in the sky” book deal money, but simple requests to send some if you so feel inclined.  Really?  And people obviously do!  Another WOW in my day.
    Our blog 101 requirement today was to insert something outside the normal.  I wanted to insert the spotify link for the lyrics to Dream Weaver.  As of this moment, I can only paste the lyrics.  But, this song comes to my mind tonight as I ponder this assignment.  And, since I am a day late in the assignment category, I actually had two posts today.  Sorry.  Won’t happen again.  Reminds me too much of why I went off FB;  beyond multiple updates and posts from the same people upteen times a day.  Is blogging just another EGO boost?  I hope not.  I don’t think so.  I need the writing practice, the canvass so to speak.  So, look over the lyrics to the song (below) and feel free to send me a comment.  Apparently followers and comments in the blog world mean something!  Thanks!
    Dream Weaver
    Song by Gary Wright
  • I have just closed my eyes again
    Climbed aboard the Dream Weaver train
    Driver take away my worries of today
    And leave tomorrow behind
    Dream Weaver, I believe you can get me through the night
    Dream Weaver, I believe we can reach the morning light
    Fly me high through the starry skies
    Or maybe to an astral plane
    Cross the highways of fantasy
    Help me to forget today’s pain
    Dream Weaver, I believe you can get me through the night
    Dream Weaver, I believe we can reach the morning light
    Though the dawn may be coming soon
    There still may be some time
    Fly me away to the bright side of the moon
    And meet me on the other side
    Dream Weaver, I believe you can get me through the night
    Dream Weaver, I believe we can reach the morning light
