The first blog I check out everyday when I am surfing is The Dream Blog. It was started by my childhood buddy and college room mate Amit. He started blogging his dreams back in June 2005 and man were they spun out. They contained more action than a James Bond flick and stranger characters than a Quentin Tarantino film. Loads of people would come in and comment leaving their interpretations of what his reverie signified and it was a good way to kick off in the morning.
Eventually he added a couple of very interesting folks as contributors and his blog became a hub to analyze these mysterious nocturnal visions. Dreams are so strange and it was interesting to be able to share and dissect them. A good dream can leave me feeling positive for a whole day just as a disturbing one can depress me. I can’t describe the elated feeling I get when I fly or swim underwater with out the need to come up for air, or the sense of longing I experience when I wake up in the morning after dreaming about someone I miss that I have loved. It was a consoling to be able to share or relate to these common sensations with other human beings.
Somewhere along though way though, around last December, the entries became less frequent. Hell, I think there have only been about 5 entries this year and that is fucking disappointing!!! Not only because I have lost out on some bloody good entertainment and human interaction, but it seems Amit and all my mates on The Dream Blog have gotten too tied up in reality. And you know that sucks!
So I was browsing Post Secret (awesome blog updated every Sunday) like I do every Monday and I came across this postcard that made me think of you guys. I hope this does not fall on deaf ears. By the way, the title of this post is me saying ‘motivation’ in a Jamaican accent. So get off your asses and start posting again.
