it depends on how you look at it



there's been some guerilla wallpapering going on in my neighbourhood. my favourite one is the street sign alteration. they changed 'raumerstraße' (which is a place name with no particular meaning) to 'träumerstraße' (meaning 'dreamer's street'). makes me smile.

so really, it all depends on how you look at it, right?

i'd like to see the potential in ordinary things, look at things with fresh eyes, see a chance for something else when things go haywire, turn difficult projects into something nice with the help of little things.

p.s.: last night i had the most vivid dream about a discussion with a squirrel. it was complaining about the lack of entertainment and prettyness in the forest and wanted me to do something about it. it was really quite chatty and convincing and impatient. i was trying to talk myself out of it, but no luck. then i woke up.

dreamer's street - so pretty! I love remembering my dreams, it's so strange that we make memories and have experiences even while we sleep.

And I had your lemon pasta with some shrimp! it made a delishious lunch, thank you for the suggestion :)

that sign is really cool - it would make me smile too.

i love when i have dreams like that - so whimsical and surreal, but somehow so real :)

writing "how dreamy" would be utterly predictable and crap. therefore, I'm not. :)

Sometimes I wish I were an Urban Guerilla. I think that would be awesome...

I love the change made to the sign. I like when things open our eyes a little more towards good ideas.
