Le Rêve

“A dreamer is one who can only find his way by moonlight, and his punishment is that he sees the dawn before the rest.”  – Oscar Wilde

“All men dream, but not equally. Those who dream by night in the dusty recesses of their minds, wake in the day to find that it was vanity: but the dreamers of the day are dangerous men, for they may act on their dreams with open eyes, to make them possible.”  – T. E. Lawrence

“The most pitiful among men is he who turns his dreams into silver and gold.”  – Khalil Gibran

le rêve

what is?

what was

the dream?

did it look

feel

taste

like this?

was it here?

were these people

in the dream?

since earliest

childhood

i knew that i

needed to leave

needed out

escape?

NO, to be where

i BELONGED

for the very

first time

along the way

there was some travel

and existing in other states

california, new york even

the mid-west

summers in

canada

seattle and more

none of them were

home

later travels

to england

holland, belgium

thailand, vietnam

each filled with

delight and

wonder

albeit

lacking

throughout this

journey my

internal compass

drew me to

europe

was it because

roots were there

yet there never were

any roots

until

i came to

FRANCE

finding home

belonging

despite fledgling

tongue

a knowing

before i

arrived

coming home

dreams can

and do

come

true

*

bisous,

léa

  1. Lea, this is so heartfelt! I can almost feel your realisation that you are finally home. So good to know you have found contentment. And so glad too that we are friends and I can share some of your pleasure in where you have found home

    Love
    Christine xx

      Merci mon amie! Yes, it sounds strange to almost all who don’t really know me. Yet, I knew it would be HOME before I even visited. When my feelings are that strong, the only error is when I don’t follow them.

      Bisous,
      L

      I came here on my own five years ago this month. There was never even a shred of doubt along the way. I love it more each day. France has much to offer but its greatest treasure, the people. Thank you.
