The dream is important. The dream for whatever you want or need is important–it’s fuel for the work you’ll need to do. But a day–many days–arrive when you need to stop dreaming and you throw yourself into work with people who apply the beauty of the dreams to the hard work at hand. To be lost always in the dream state is a sort of death, a stillbirth. The dreams make a nest, and you need to leave it. You take the memory and the lessons of the dream, but you don’t go back to the nest.
