On Possibility

I dwell in possibility.  -Emily Dickinson

Although I have no idea what Miss Dickinson intended with those words, I've always liked this quote. There's something blissful in imagining what the future may hold. In the span between now and then, however brief, is a chance to dream of what could be. All too frequently we forget to dream or avoid it intentionally. There's pressure to focus on daily, nagging issues, and by the time we've addressed them, we're usually wiped out. At least that's how I often feel.

So, what if instead of always letting the quotidian matters take priority, we resolve to give precedence to dreaming now and then? This is definitely a stretch goal for me but certainly one worth attempting.
