If there were dreams to sell, what would you buy?
From Dream Pedlary, a poem by Thomas Beddoes
After I read this poem, I gave the premise much thought. What would I buy if dreams were a commodity? I’ve written down a few thoughts that came quickly, yet if pondered thoroughly, this is a hard exercise. You mention one thing when another appears to erase its validity. Even the ones I posed could be ruled out if greater thought was exercised.
One of my dreams:
A dream where mankind had not progressed to the knowledge available in our age.
- Children were able to be children longer.
- The elderly were respected and cherished.
- Innocence was precious.
- Greed was a crime.
- Work was an honorable profession.
- Love was priceless.
Give it a try and see what you come up with. It is an excellent brain exercise, as one thought leads to another. You might even peer into your inner sanctum and have a look at the real you! Just remember, thoughts are free.
