The best fantasy is written in the language of dreams. It is alive as dreams are alive, more real than real ... for a moment at least ... that long magic moment before we wake (George R. R. Martin).
Our Simon (in younger days) lost in sweet dreams. He looks as if butter wouldn't melt in his mouth :o). Now he is 4 years old and a little rascal ;o).
There are two kinds of hope: the kind you couldn't do anything about and the kind you could. And even if the kind you could do something about wasn't what you'd originally wanted, it was still worth doing. A rainy day is better than no day. A small happiness can make a big sadness less sad (Rachel Simon).
