I had dinner with a friend tonight and we each confided our “absurd” dreams. His notion of starting his own art magazine was not far-fetched sounding to me at all. It actually was very inspiring to listen to him speak about his concept and the various artists who’ve inspired this idea for him. It didn’t sound ridiculous to me because I worked in the magazine world but because he’s a (talented) architect and artist who’s never done publishing before, it seems like a daunting task.
It’s funny that the things we’ve never done before just somehow seem like huge menacing obstacles. I love having conversations with friends about dreams…no matter how “impractical” they may sound. I think it’s healthy to vent these whimsical inspired notions to another human being. It lets them know that their inspired notions are not so crazy after all. And if they don’t have any, I guess there isn’t much to say! (…other than, why are you friends with them?)
My “absurd” dream is to teach yoga in French and to work in a café/bakery in Paris serving great espresso and fresh pastries. Do I know how to speak French? No. Will I ever live in Paris? Who knows. But I’m going to keep listening to my inspired notions because they are a part of a deep genuine desire I have. They serve to fulfill a facet of me that I myself have not seen and have yet to discover.
