  3. These are all dreams well worth the risk of dreaming them! And even more to make them come true! Beautiful thought, Iris, as always! Hope all is well with you Down Under, especially with that terrible heat at the moment. πŸ˜„β€πŸ¨πŸŒΊ

    • Hi Sarah, lovely to hear from you… how are things with you? Yes, weather can be extreme some days here! Watched Australia Day concert last night… held in Sydney’s Circular Quay overlooking the Opera House. It was both entertaining and moving as they included some Aboriginal artistes… so very talented too! Quite a celebration and it was a perfect evening with lots of fireworks!! Have been busy with work etc. but all is going well and looking positive. Thanks for your kind words. Have a great week ahead! πŸ˜‰πŸ˜€β€πŸΏπŸ¦‰πŸ¦†πŸŒ»βš˜πŸŒ²

    • Yes, we tend to be philosophical about our dreams and hope for seasons of opportunities… life gives us that to reflect on and we do have choices. Thank you for your meaningful reflection, Jet. Delighted to have you stop by and appreciate your thoughts on this. πŸ˜ƒ

  7. Such a meaningful poem, Iris. Such a positive one, a poem that encourages to embrace life through being present, being with the ones around us and finding a sense of what we want to do and improve ourselves. Hope your year has been good so far. It hasn’t been too bad for me down here in Melbourne. Weather has been warm but not too warm and I am enjoying that πŸ™‚

    • Nice to have you visit, Mabel. Delighted this poem resonated with you… thanks so much for your thoughtful reflection. Yes, weather can be extreme some days, and climate changes seem to be all over the world. Glad you’re enjoying the summer days and have a great season. It has been a good and positive start to the year for me, kept very busy! πŸ˜‰ πŸ˜ƒ Ah, a great challenge is healthy, it motivates doesn’t it? See you later! πŸ˜ƒ


  8. Wonderfully concise to express the most important in our lives. Loved it, Iris! When it comes to personal accomplishments we often feel devoid, deluded. I strongly recommend you and the rest of your followers here to read my friend Mario Savioni’s novel (very short chapters) “Pickles and Tarts”. A lot of what your lovely poem expresses is there as well: what one dares to dream but cannot always accomplish: “Frank thought about this. Was he looking for a partner or someone to have sex with? He did not think beyond that simple, single transaction β€” the satisfaction of his baser needs, not realizing that his needs might go on given the possibility of this opportunity and mutual attraction.” Excerpt from here:


Appreciate your thoughts.
