Dream A Little Dream Of... Your True Heart's Desire

The lovely Deb tagged me for a meme. Today seems like a perfect day to do this.
And so far, this has to be one of my favorite memes.

Write five things you want to be when you grow up. Big dreams that seem like folly, but in your heart of hearts are very real and dear to you. Things that maybe you have forgotten about in the ebb and flow and toil of the everyday, but that never really leave your soul. What you would do if anything was possible?

1) The very first occupation I remember really, really wanting to do but seemed totally impossible is the same as Deb's #1 - a photographer for National Geographic. I desperately wanted to hop from country to country, continent to continent - making the world my home. I wanted to leave everything in America behind and simply follow my heart and the road.

2) I would really like to write a children's book (or two). This has been a long-standing dream of mine. I want to collaborate with an illustrator - become part of an artistic process. I so enjoy children's literature and nothing would please me more than to share a story of my own creation with children.

3) In the past few years, I have recently discovered that the two things I can "cook" well are soups and sandwiches. And for the past year or so, I have expressed interest to Rav that I would love to open an eclectic little soup/sandwich shop. A place with cozy, little tables. Oversized chairs, ottomans, teas/coffees/juices. Cool music playing in the background. Can you see it in your head? I totally can.

4) I would love to teach in Korea. Period.

5) A professional musician. I don't know if this one needs any explanation either. Again, with collaborating, part of a process, working with people who are as passionate about music as I am. Sharing that passion with others. Feeling goosebumps on a daily basis when I hear/play certain pieces of music. Aaaahh. I would be in heaven.

Please, if you are reading and feel so inclined, participate in this meme. I would love to hear what your dreams are.

A soup and sandwich shop, sounds nice. You have a thing for Korea girl. What's up with that?

Tabba said...

I LOVE Korean food and many parts of their culture I just "get". I don't know how else to explain it, really.
But it all started with the food...

I love your dreams! I was just talking with Liam the other day about opening a soup restaurant...

P.S. I left you an award over at my place...

A soup and sandwich shop sounds like SO much fun! I want to open a little pink and blue bakery.

I want to eat in your shop.

I've always dreamed of owning a bed and breakfast in new england...

I can see you doing all of it

Oh, The Joys said...

I can see you in number 3. People would come in and stay for hours talking with you. HOURS. Do it.

I've wanted to write children's books, too. And illustrate them. I still like to tell myself that I will at some point.

The soup and sandwich shop sounds great.

Becc said...

Korea. Good for you. I'll come visit when you open the shop! Yummy!

jackie said...

I don't really like soups, but I do love sandwiches!

I came here from Aliki's, by the way.
