Waking Up is Hard to Do

Dooley Road
Grapevine, TX

Sometimes waking up is hard to do. (My apologies to Neil Sedaka.)   I was in the middle of really great dream but I ran out patience and woke up.  I had just won $331,000 on a neighborhood slot machine.  Crowds were gathering to see the lucky winner.  Why did I have to wake up?  Easy street was within my reach.

The euphoria and relief were palpable this morning.  All my financial worries were going to be put to rest.  All I had left to worry about was just living and getting my new business off the ground.  It's good to dream but it's harder than hell when you wake up.  The disappointment was very real.  

Euphoria and disappointment all within a matter of minutes; an emotional roller coaster ride that I didn't know I had tickets for.  I don't know what's in store for me today.  The range is between the two.  I would settle for something comfortably in the middle.

  1. Great image Al. Equally well presented words too. I'm understanding them. With me though they relate less to dreams and more to living, where sometimes our dreams aren't dreams at all yet gone none the less.
