    Dreams inspire us. Without dreams we would not have reached the moon. Dreams keep me optimistic about the future, realism gets me there.

    I Switch Back and Forth

    I love dreaming and fantasizing.  It's amazing...it's like I'm in heaven. But eventually, when I get done, I realize that none of what I dream is ever possible, and I fall face down back into reality.  It hurts too.

    myself, both battling for dominance, but in the end they tend to balance each other out, allowing me to dream while having that dream be attainable.
