“And then the dreams break into a million tiny pieces. The dream dies. Which leaves you with a choice: You can settle for reality, or you can go off, like a fool, and dream another dream.”

“Hold fast to dreams

For if dreams die

Life is a broken-winged bird

That cannot fly.

Hold fast to dreams

For when dreams go

Life is a barren field

Frozen with snow.”

– Langston Hughes

Golden Dawn: A Story of Hope, Dreams and Peace (inner)

GOLDEN DAWN:
A New Book Being Written, as Life Unfolds“Life is God’s novel; so let Ultimate Source write it, as it unfolds…”
– me (as inspired by the words of Isaac Bashevis Singer)

“And at the end of all our exploring
Will be to arrive where we started
And know the place for the first time.”
