Fantasy or daydreamsI woke this morning wondering what is the difference between fantasy and daydreams. Before getting up I decided. For today, daydreams are thoughts and wishes that one could possibly make happen. Come true.
And a Fantasy is a place in your heart, mind and soul where you can go and escape stuff or just hold onto for pleasure.
While in San Miguel, I had a conversation with Judy Wise about her Artist In Residence excursion that she took last year in
In short, she made it sound like an amazing adventure. She made it sound very doable as if I could possibly make it happen. I couldn't stop daydreaming about it.
Even after returning from San Miguel, I kept thinking about making it happen. Which led me to tell my friend about it in an email. I told her how brave, bold, scary, fun, and challenging it sounded. Then I told her if my DH would go with me, I would do it.
She challenged me about why on that specific trip did I need my DH to go along. I gave her some very good and sound reasons but the best one was that DH and I always wanted to return someday. We were there at least 35 years ago. How could I go without him now? I couldn't because I knew without a doubt that he is not, would not, never ever go on such a trip with me.
Well, well, well, it became very clear that I had very ingeniously arranged this daydream in my mind in such a way that I could never make it happen.
It wasn't a daydream. It was a fantasy.
To be continued........
