Planning my Dream

I'm about to go to bed, and I have decided what I want to dream about- Peru. Machu Picchu, Inca women in colourful clothes, mountains lost amidst swirling clouds, the ghosts of long-gone people crying out in anguish at the treatment meted out to them- of forests, diverse climatic conditions, rain and sunshine, torrid heat and bitter cold- of languages that seem like a torrent of incoherently strung syllables poured forth, but have a beauty and charm beyond comprehension.

Do dreams come true?

mm-hmm , They do. Dream on :)

and that reminds me of aerosmith!
Dream on, dream on
Dream yourself a dream come true
Dream on, dream on
Dream until your dreams come true
Dream on, dream on, dream on...

Sadly, Peru didn't creep into my dreams...instead, it was work that did :-S. And trust me, it wasn't a dream I'd want coming true.

Hi Pooja,

Have you read Pico Iyer's Falling off the Map?

Ashwin: Lovely. Now that's what dreams are all about. History? I like it in bits and pieces, as it catches my fancy, not thrust down my throat. I do wish I'd paid more attention to History classes in school, though.

Bhuvani: No, I haven't. Thanks for the suggestion, though, because tomorrow is my library day, and I have been fishing for ideas.
