Chronic Grace

Finding the Grace in a Life With Chronic Illness

“A single dream is more important than a thousand realities…” –J.R. Tolkien 

Our dreams are immensely powerful because they take us in new directions we would never have imagined and open new horizons we would never have otherwise seen. Even if our dreams are never realized in the exact manner we expect, they still transform us and the direction of our lives in myriad ways.

  1. I think about my dreams a lot, sometimes, especially when they are so different than what goes on in my life, sudden. Great quote here, and a most wonderful post.

      Thanks Silvia, I’m glad you like it. My dreams seem to come in spurts, for a while I will have vivid, memorable dreams, and then sometimes, like now, I will (or so it seems) have no dreams at all. Regardless though, I think dreams are an important clue to the unconscious.
