Re-Birth :heart::heart:

This day, Today, was a brimming glass.
This day, Today, was an immense wave.
This day was all the Earth.
This day, the storm-driven ocean
lifted us up in a kiss
so exalted we trembled
at the lightning flash
and bound as one, fell,
and drowned, without being unbound.

This day our bodies grew
stretched out to Earth's limits,
orbited there, melded there
to one globe of wax, or a meteor's flame.
A strange door opened, between us,
and someone, with no face as yet,
waited for us there.

-by Pablo Neruda
The Eighth of September
(also the date i first became a mum)

I took this photo at the beginning of the year at sunset and thought it made a good shadow shot but i wasn't sure if it was up to much so didn't post...then i saw this video and it reminded me of the image ....I always day dream when out taking photos -I was going to turn it b/w but i like the colours

I have a dream - real world, for the romantics - [link] :music:
and then i saw this one
I have a dream - for the imaginary "stream" [link] :music:

Why have i picked two videos,
To start with, one must understand what Albert Einstein meant when he said: "Imagination is more important than knowledge. Knowledge is limited. Imagination encircles the world." Albert Einstein (1879-1955).even though knowledge is important for my work, In this song, these two worlds are divided by an imaginary "stream", but it is a stream that one can choose to cross at will, going from the real world into one's spiritual world, or into one's imagination "when ever the time is right to be in that sphere".
It is on the spiritual side of the stream where the real powers of personal attitude will determine if we are having a wonderful time in this life, or whether we are living our life in a difficult way, filled with sadness, anger, or in any way that does not take a moment to see the wonder of all things!
This song has a remarkably parallel message, and it is uplifting in that it encourages us to not be afraid of the future, and to look for something good in everyone and everything we see.
A "destination" is the universal human desire to enjoy a meaningful life, this song is also encouragement to not give up, but rather to continue on "Pushing through the darkness… still another mile" because the destination makes it all worth while and once seen in this light, it is not only beautiful, uplifting and encouraging...... but also a Re-Birth. This makes us fit for this life, for it is this life we live.

All successful people men and women are big dreamers. They imagine what their future could be, ideal in every respect, and then they work every day toward their distant vision, that goal or purpose.
which one will you stay in?....

And finally i have the next few days off to catch up, which i have not had since christmas eve so i am going to be in my imaginary world for a while....maybe one day my destination. you all have a great week..
