Dreaming is becoming something old-fashioned and taboo. Or something ridiculous. Even slightly forbidden, because why dream when work needs to be done, loans and leases need paying and families need providing for. This is reality and you need to deal with what’s real, not dream. Dreaming is only for those who cannot cope with reality. The weak. The clumsy. The losers. Why show your weaknesses and to whom? Why dream at all and who needs it anyway?
Or do we?
Without dreaming, people get swamped by daily life – it’s a routine that might be very peaceful and beautiful but also drown you with dullness. Isn’t dreaming something that takes us further? What do people dream about? Estonian people? About a new house? A Ford Mustang? Having children? A younger wife? A more handsome husband? Motivation? Better health? Peace and quiet? Longer life-span? Blissful retirement? Tender caresses? Normal body measurements? The courage to say: “I love you!”?
