a hundred dreams or more

a hundred dreams or more

a hundred dreams or more lie this side of her lovely peacock curtains. dreams that never took flight, still locked up in a vintage apartment... perhaps because they were never meant to fly. maybe they were only meant to be just dreams... meant only to look out the window and keep her company. maybe not.

all i know is they are still there. and i remembered them once more when i walked in the room and saw those perfect peacock curtains again.

{taken at my aunt's and grandmother's apartment in downtown chicago. i used to visit often as a child, and never wanted to leave when i did.}

I love that some of my dreams are ones that I know will never see the light of day, but they are there just for the pure joy of dreaming.
My grandparents' house was like that too..a place I loved to go...a safe and comforting place that I never wanted to leave either. What a gift! I'm glad you had a place like that to dream.

Isn't it a delight to have memories of visits with grandmothers and aunties that still spark something when we're all grown up?
