I've read a couple of British Dollhouse and Miniature magazines on my tablet lately and boy, is the hobby ever popular across the pond! Recently I've been fantasizing about going to visit England solely for the purpose of visiting miniatures shops and fairs. That would be dreamy....However I do have a practical side. I want to take Mark with me to the UK and something tells me he wouldn't be thrilled to spend the whole time visiting dollhouse and miniature shops. Maybe he could spend time visiting the castles and museums and we could meet up at the end of the day? :P Last week my friend Susie and I were having a skype date and saying that we would both like to do more traveling and we'd go anywhere. There is no where we're not interested in going. However, we both agreed that travel dreams to drop down to the bottom of the priority list when more prosaic concerns demand attention. For me this includes saving up to buy a house, starting a family, ect.
I think dreams are important though. I love this quote from "Through the Looking Glass" by Lewis Carol:
"Alice laughed. "There's no use trying," she said: "one can't believe impossible things."
"I daresay you haven't had much practice," said the Queen. "When
I was your age, I always did it for half-an-hour a day. Why, sometimes
I've believed as many as six impossible things before breakfast."
Where would we be if we didn't dare to believe the impossible and dream lofty dreams? Life would be boring.
My approach to life is to attend to practical details while dreaming fabulous dreams. I encourage you to do the same!
