i've got tons of dreams. well, who doesn't. not all of them are publishable though. so after browsing through my big, huge, ornate dream chest, i'm picking this one:
a garden. maybe an allotment. a dacha. that's a big dream. and has been for years. a place where i can grow my own fruit and vegetables. get my hands dirty with soil. sit in a cabin that won't quite heat up although i've fired the small oven. where i'm waiting for spring and the first signs of green. listen to the birds. read lots of books. have friends over for summer dinner with quiche made from my own fresh spinach. with a bottle of wine (or two). pick berries. and apples. where i smell autumn's coming. where i come occasionally in winter to check all is ok. and dream of spring making an appearance, all of a sudden, unexpectedly.
i know it will happen, one day.
