Prompt for the Day: “Dream”


The grand dreamers at the Daily Post group of Word Press pulled the word “Dream” out of an old ragged hat to be the focus of our various daily creations.

Music First And Foremost

The Everly Brothers preformed the song: “All I Have to Do is Dream“.  Then there is the song by the Mamas & the Papas entitled: “Dream a Little Dream of Me“.  Then there was Gary Wright’s “DreamWeaver“.

I Used to Dream

Wanted to be an astronaut when I was little.  Got a local politician in congress to give me a recommendation to the United States Air Force Academy located in Colorado Springs.  The only problem was I wasn’t old enough to enter the military without a parent’s signature.  They hit the roof when I asked them to sign for me.

So had to win a scholarship to be able to attend college as far away from them as possible.  While in my first semester of college I uncovered the physical requirements for an astronaut.  I was too short to ever become one.  Crestfallen, I focused on my other interests of computers.  My new dream became to manage huge computer systems.  Did an internship in which I was able to put further constraints on my dreams.  Programming bored me silly!  What turned me on was directing network traffic.

Ended up becoming a successful network engineer.  Lived that dream for many years in several states of the country.  That dream ended back in 2004 when we left Colorado where we had lived for over seven years.  The relocation just about cost us everything.  Putting our dreams on stand still.

We moved many more times until we finally relocated to our current house.  Am now wheelchair bound, but have access to a service that picks me up from our house and delivers me and my wheelchair at our chosen destinations.  Our neighbors are great, not as good as the ones we had back in CO, but nice.

Please Help Fight Evil Disease

The medicine my neurologist prescribed for me to treat my multiple sclerosis is called Tysabri. Trying to find the actual cost on the internet is basically nearly impossible. I remember when I first started on the drug the amount the facility tried charging me was well over $2500. There was no way my husband and I could afford that then or every 28 days!

    I just want to encourage you to dream again. It’s like faith! You see something you want as a pattern to go for. I only tell you this because I am a believer. I know that your circumstances are tough
