Looking back, 30 years later, I have a different perspective of the same, with the way life played out for me and the background of experiences. My dad was like this big dream factory, doling out dreams for us, possibilities, and opportunities for us, while we relentlessly chased them trying to catch them in the huge backyard called life. Some we caught, much to our glee, some we let go, but rejoiced in the fact that they were within our reach. Some made us fall. Sometimes we got tired of all the running and we just sat down when nothing comes our way or it seems out of reach. But then when we look up there are many other dreams up there waiting to be caught. The idea behind the game was to keep chasing, catching some, basking in the feeling, bursting them or letting them fly away. What you choose to do with them is your call.
So the lesson in this is keep chasing, your dreams are up there waiting for you to catch them. They don’t come with an expiration date. So take a deep breath and keep running.
