I've often found myself listening to*/overhearing one of Taylor Swift's catchy little ditties, thinking, "Man, keep dreaming, lil youngin.' The real world isn't like that - you sing of fantasies. Wait until reality hits you."
How cynical can I be? I listen to her fairy tale dreams and immediately reason why none of that is possible. Too many of us have let the harsh world of experiences wipe away our dreams. What is a man if not his dreams? We cannot deny ourselves of this.
Thanks for the reminder to keep dreaming, Swift.
*on the radio or at the gym, I don't own any of her music - I appreciate her talent, but not enough to buy her music
