"D" is for "Dreams"

One of the keynote songs of my youth is "Dreams".  The older I get, the more I am amazed at how Stevie Nicks managed to describe the 'chase' for 'happy' that plagues most relationships - - people become so focused on what they do NOT have, they forget what is there and real.  The observation that:

But listen carefully to the sound
Of your loneliness
Like a heartbeat, drives you mad
In the stillness of remembering what you had
And what you lost
And what you had
And what you lost

Our dreams . . . they are lost and found . . . the lesson is to appreciate each moment . . . for it will someday be a dream that seems to have disappeared in the mist of the past. . .
