Dream On!
Dream On!

I just said something exuberant to my wife Joanne and her response was “Sure, dream on, Fred”.  My response to her was “That’s a subject for a blog.”

And here we go:  “Dream on” is the perfect subject for a blog, less than one week after the fourth annual Gotham Picnic softball game which was covered last Sunday by Sunday blogger and my first baseman Corey Bearak.

So many unusual things happened in that game that one could call it a “dream game”. There was so much self congratulatory talk about how well a player was doing, or could’ve done when he was young or just plain imagined, that one could’ve easily said in a  trash talking vein: “dream on”.  But no!

John Lennon wrote: “You May say I’m a dreamer.  But I’m not the only one” (Imagine)!

If you don’t dream, then they can’t possibly come true.  Corey did make the final play allowing me to exclaim “It’s great to be YOUNG and a Batmen!” (without a scintilla of irony).

So to all,  I exclaim DREAM ON!

    It's so good to have dreams, both when awake and when asleep.

    But they mean little unless you act on them.

    First time I ever played with my entire immediate family. Kind of a dream, I thought would never be possible. Thanks Fred.

    Dreams are the topics of so many Great Songs. Corey where are you?
    Dreams are what made the Dodger Fans' Wait Till Next Year a Mantra.
    Dreams are what made Freud-Freud.
    Dreams are what made America. They don't call the immigrant waiting to be FREE-Dreamers for Nothing.

    I was thinking of Greg Allman singing Dreams as we heard when we last saw ABB together at the Beacon. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=G_8E_lyILFo

    Vincent probably prefers the lyrics and the tune you chose. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=YkgkThdzX-8

    But I suspect Moody Blues trumps todays with
    Your Wildest Dreams https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qsqfMBOQip8

    (never a fan of the (Aerosmith) song that shares a title with your blog)

    Still do not know why I received two clear shoutouts and other more subtle ones and thus be the subject of this....

    A candy colored clown they call the Sandman tiptoes to my room every night ...just to sprinkle stardust and to whisper .... "Go to sleep everything is alright ." .... My epitaph might read ... ." He followed his dreams ". I have lived a life focused on making my dreams a reality . I continue to succeed . There are things I've done I wish I could undo . But for the most part my dreams have taken me places that most could never imagine . From living in a small cottage on the beach in Nazare Portugal to a Kampong in Malaysia . From dinner at Tour D'Argent in Paris to a pig roast in the jungles of Angola . Yeah .... I've left some bodies along the way . And I've taken a few wrong turns . But that's what it took to get here . Follow your dreams DERF . Never stop brother
