‘Well, I think its about taking back some control, and reading and learning.
My friend took a sip of coffee and said ‘You can not have it all you know, you have to be realistic here.’
And he is right ofcourse, and really he is not. First of all, ‘it all’ is not some I desire, ‘it all’ would freak me out. ‘m just making choices where I can make them, pushing boundaries a bit and though realistic thinking might seem sensible, so does dreaming.
I listened to our prime minister on the news last night and they do a lot of ‘ realistic’ thinking out there but gohd how they fuck things up.. Wish they would take some time to dream a little.
