Today, I created another day to look forward to. Today, I purchased two tickets for me and my husband to see Cirque du Soleil on May 19th. Ever since I can remember, it has been my dream to go to a circus, and when I learned about this circus, it became an even bigger dream. Allow me to tell you what I see at night . . .

I've had dreams for years, where I go into my attic (I don't actually have one), and find a large trunk. The trunk is open and filled to the brim with clothes and things that beg me to try them on. There's a long purple dress, a black top hat, black boots, and a tattered gothic parasol. I dig deeper and find a vintage white lacy dress, hair pins, pearls, and an intricately made light blue velvet corset. All of these things are begging me to try them on. But, what happens next? The attic falls away, and there's a giant stage, with a jolly old fellow who invites me into his little clan of misfits and oddities. Yet, I don't see the oddities. I see a family of people just like me, inviting me to join them and see all the things they've come to know and love. This is my favorite dream, and the one which inspires all that I do.

I invite you to come back and read what I have to say about this highly anticipated event, which will surely prove to be the most incredible dream of my life.
