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.
