I’m always excited to see what Jamie Ridler will prompt us with on Wishcasting Wednesdays and some weeks the answer pops into my head fully there and all I have to do is write it down. Some weeks I need to ponder for a few minutes before something comes to me and other weeks I read the prompt and just blow it off. Nope...not for me this week.
The ones I ignore are usually the ones that end up staying with me the longest. They nag and cajole me to answer them (if only for myself) and now I know when I see a prompt that I immediately decide not answer that it’s one I need to answer to see what comes up.
Today is one of those days.
Jamie asks us....What do you wish to dare (or dare to wish)?
I wish to dare myself to dream.
I’ve been struggling with this since last May when I read A Year by the Sea, by Joan Anderson. I wrote about it then in What Do Dreams Ask of Us and it’s something I think about daily. I wrote about dreams again last week in NaNoWriMo and in a limited way yesterday in Bucket List - Part One. But dreams and dreaming are something I wrestle with all the time.
I think most people take dreams for granted.
I also think my dreams are as scared of me as I am of them and maybe what we need is a dare...or maybe even a double dare! J
