My best dreaming is done with my eyes open. Maybe it’s because being outside, seeing new things, or seeing something old in a different light is what gets my brain spinning.
It churns up the what if’s. It turns the maybes into possibilities. It gets my brain connecting new dots. It makes me feel small, which churns up big ideas. It fuels confidence and creativity. And well, when my eyes are open and on the lookout, it helps me see some of the dreams, little and huge, that have come true.
I’ve also been so tired that whenever I close my eyes, I kind of immediately pass out and can’t remember any dreams for the life of me either.
So if you see me staring at something for a while, possibly with a little smirk on my face, I’m just working on a dream.
