The exercise is to stream-of-consciousness write down my dreams.
The premise is that my un-edited self knows what I truly want.
The goal is to unleash and unfurl.
In case I didn’t get you the memo, speaking up for myself, asking for what I want—not my forte. So, dreaming, really big dreaming—difficult!
Here are my lists. The first was a ten minute “warm-up”. The second, another ten minutes, after the “warm-up” and with the hope to unleash those even bigger (mondo beyondo) dreams.
â¦ Drive across the country with an Airstream and blog and write the entire trip
â¦ Have dinner parties along the way with locals and local cuisine
â¦ Publish a series of best selling books that become an online community
â¦ Appear on the cover of Time, 100 most influential people issue
â¦ Befriend Oprah and Madonna
â¦ Rearrange how people in the U.S. think about sex, love, the erotic
â¦ Pervade sex ed in schools
â¦ Make waves
â¦ Have a home on a warm beach where splendid and charming people come to visit
â¦ Have the home I dream of
â¦ Pilot a plane across the country
â¦ Land a plane on a river
â¦ Dress in sparkles every day
â¦ Teach girls a new way of “Princess” that is powerful, yet pure girl
â¦ Do all this w/o a “real” job
â¦ Grow the garden of my dreams
â¦ Drive with the top down on the car 80% of the time

â¦ Sail in a chain of islands in a warm sea
â¦ Bring joy

â¦ Be Alice
â¦ Wear pink
â¦ Grow roses.
With some duplication and the intention to be completely “outrageous” (more mondo), here’s list two:
â¦ I dream of a home by the warm sea, where friends and friends of friends, and even famous people, come to play, learn, love.
â¦ I dream of swimming in a warm sea every day and making love under the stars every night.
â¦ I dream of living without restrictive fears.
â¦ I dream of a partner who brings out the best in me and who helps me evolve beyond my short comings.
â¦ I dream of having more self discipline, and of loving myself through and through.
â¦ I dream of my home, my studio.
â¦ I dream of being a very good friend.
â¦ I dream of seeing fairies and pixies and sprites and such, and of communicating with them—learning from and with them.
â¦ I dream of being influential on a nationwide scale, and of being comfortable with it.
â¦ I dream of having a Good Hair Day every day.
â¦ I dream of building my circus, and of being an aerialist in it.
â¦ I dream of recovering my memory, and my sense of smell.
â¦ I dream of being secure—emotionally, financially—or perhaps it’s just a sense of security.
â¦ I dream of having an open heart and an open intuition at all but the inappropriate times.
â¦ I dream of always being authentic and loving.

And now, on with the unfurling!
