“I wrote my dream on cardboard, went out into the street and held the cardboard dream in front of me. At the end of the day I abandoned the cardboard dream. Over the year one hundred and ninety-four dreams were written on cardboard and shared this way…”

    Karen, I first heard these on freesound.org They are moving and excellent put across. Was there anything further to the Dream about being helpful/then messed up? I hope you continue with these.

    • hi lee, thanks 4 yr comment. i actually no longer remember the dream about being helpful/then messed up…but i do remember how it related to the events unfolding at the saint james centre at the time, and in regards to that aspect it seems things came closer to what could be called a “happy ending” …of sorts. but of course happy endings don’t last and there is always something new to take into consideration as people are complex and complicated in their relationships with those closest to them. (how’s that for cryptic?) did u c the movie that night?
