Oh...we are also built to dream...and without that, survival doesn't mean much, at least to me. If the philosophy seems a bit naive, it's based on hope, and hope is always naive...for it depends on a suspension of the knowledge of the hardness of present circumstance.

Thank you for providing the impetus for that thought. I am signing off for the long weekend. Going to Assateague to frolic in the dunes with the wild ponies and maybe do a little dreaming myself!

Take care and have a nice holiday,
