A Quixotic Quest:
….To dream the impossible dream,
To fight the unbelievable foe,
To bear with unbearable sorrow
To run where the brave dare not go;
To right the unrightable wrong.
To love, pure and chaste, from afar,
To try, when your arms are too weary,
To reach the unreachable star!
This is my Quest to follow that star,
No matter how hopeless, no matter how far,
To fight for the right without question or pause….
Excerpt from the play from 1965 Broadway play Don Quijote De La Mancha ~ The quintessential dreamer.
This could be my theme song right now. I might tape the lyrics of this song on my mirror and read them every morning after a night of dreaming. Maybe I am looking for an impossible dream.
Sometimes I wonder if I have all my marbles, especially when I compare myself with the life of this poor demented knight!
