Hopes and Dreams

“Hope” is the thing with feathers

That perches in the soul…

And sings the tune without the words

And never stops ….at all

~ Emily Dickinson

I was reminded of this poem by a friend named Anna on one of the social networks! And it was nice to know that there is this little feathered being deep inside me, that sings non-stop!

So many times we start feeling we have come to a time and place that is void of hope and of possibilities, only to find that it is the very state of hopelessness that not only allows us to hit the bottom and give up the illusion of control, but also turn everything around and make the impossible, possible.  To not have hopes and dreams means you are at a place of complete loss…… loss of our birthright as a human being.  Hope does spring and sing eternal, even when we have wax in our ears!   By recognizing and affirming our feelings of hopelessness, we open the possibility of something else, something more beautiful!

And now, here is a video that I watched yesterday and enjoyed it a lot!

no, no hidden meanings – I really wanted to post that cockatoo video ever since I found it on StumbleUpon, but since Wendy posted it yesterday, I didn’t want to look like I was copying her! Now I am going to wait to get my hands on Wendy’s dance video! I’m darn sure it’ll bring me thousands if not millions of links and help me get a good PR!!
