I’ve already had several dreams come true like becoming a mom, living in a state that has real, bonafide mountains and having a job that I love. There are a few dreams however that have yet to become a reality. So here are a few dreams in no particular order that I am still waiting for.
#1. I really want my family to dress up as characters from The Wizard of Oz for Halloween. Every year I strongly suggest it, and every year I get turned down. I would also go for a Super Hero theme as well. I’m thinking I may have more of a chance with that one though.
#2. I love to sing and although I hate the spotlight I would love to sing while playing an acoustic guitar in front of a very lively and adoring crowd just once. Funny thing is every time I picture myself doing this I am wearing khaki bermuda shorts and a boxy, yellow Hawaiian shirt. Eww… I know. I guess I’ve been dreaming about this since I was in high school and I really didn’t have a sense of style then. And no…I don’t play the guitar. Not anymore any way.
#3. Okay, and now for a more serious one. This one is harder for me to explain because it has so many different levels to it. Someday I hope to take photos that make people stop dead in their tracks…photos that tell a story so vividly that one feels a personal connection with the subject(s). AND, and, and…THEN that feeling sparks a response in the form of action. I’m talking about social justice issues. This dream is still unfolding but it’s already taken a deep root in my heart. I feel like what I’m learning right now from taking family portraits and weddings here and there are preparing me for something else. Not something better because I feel like what I do right now is extremely important, but I feel like I would be missing a part of my destiny or calling in life if I didn’t push myself beyond the type of photography that I’m doing right now.
So what are some of your dreams???
