Aedh Wishes for the Cloths of Heaven

1 Jun 2015 /

William Butler Yeats

Had I the heavens’ embroidered cloths,
Enwrought with golden and silver light,
The blue and the dim and the dark cloths
Of night and light and the half light,
I would spread the cloths under your feet:
But I, being poor, have only my dreams;
I have spread my dreams under your feet;
Tread softly because you tread on my dreams.

— W. B. Yeats, “Aedh Wishes for the Cloths of Heaven”

Venn diagram

A colleague shows me a Venn diagram like this one and asks would it be possible to succeed with only two of the three elements.

I say, “I suppose you could have fun dreaming big and get other people to do all the hard work.”

When Did We Forget Our Dreams?

xkcd: “The solution doesn’t involve watering down my every little idea and creative impulse for the sake of someday easing my fit into a mold. It doesn’t involve tempering my life to better fit someone’s expectations. It doesn’t involve constantly holding back for fear of shaking things up. . . .

A Dream

18 Jul 2010 /

Last night I dreamed that I was losing my mind. I was doing things that I knew were crazy but I couldn’t stop myself from doing them.

“I’ve got to see a doctor,” I thought. “I can feel my sanity slipping away from me.”

It was just a dream though . . .

I Had a Bad Dream

Lightning at the Dog Park

Hi Everybody –

I just had the worst nightmare! My owner took me to a country fair and I got lost and we couldn’t find each other!

It was so realistic! I’ve never been so sad and scared! But then I woke up and it was just a dream and so I was happy again!

I’ve been having nightmares the last week or so.

Last night I was stabbed to death by a maniac on a motorcycle.

The night before I was a zombie terrorizing an Old West elementary school . . .

Wish Hope Dream

“Where’d you get the Wish Hope Dream Post-Its?” I ask a co-worker.

“Why?” she asks. “Is that your mantra?”

“No, I was thinking more along the lines of wishes, hopes and dreams being peeled away one by one until you’re left with nothing.”

“That’s an optimistic way of looking at it.”

“It sure is.”
