Daydreams - LBC

his weeks topic comes courtesy of Ramana in Pune India.  

According to Merriam Webster daydreams are a pleasant, visionary usually wishful creation of the imagination. That sounds about right to me.

I used to daydream a lot when I was in school. I spent most of my high school life bored to tears in classes. Daydreams were my salvation. Without them I would have spent almost as much time in the dean's office as in class. There was infinite source material - heck,  every pretty girl I was too shy to talk to was good daydreaming material. 

If there  was a big game coming up that was great fodder for my daydreams.  Yep - I was a day dreamin boy.

A good song about a daydream could finance an entire career - like this one did for one of my all-time favorite minstrels - John Stewart

Thank you Monkees and Anne Murray for that. 

Daydreams let us escape the rigors of daily life, if only briefly. We all need a break now and then and daydreams beat the chemically induced escape so readily available these days.


  1. You hit the nail on the head, Chuck. Life would be pretty boring without daydreams. You found a great way to slide through school.

  2. I am once again amazed at how many songs you can think of on a topic! And yes indeed, daydreaming better any day than the chemically induced ones.
