Old class photos are great because they not only remind us of who we once were but also just how far we’ve come.

As the teeter-totter illustrates, reciprocation is top notch happiness.

Right cross.

Although this daydreamer takes a few shots on the chin, he is still grateful that the stars align just enough for him to climb into the ring.

In a quiet moment after the skirmish, this daydreamer wonders if he has made all the right choices. The truth is a satisfying answer may never come but at least he can take with him the minute comfort that he has indeed given all he knows how to give.

Now forever.

Fireworks blossom brightly in the warm summer sky. Daydreamers look up in awe, savoring every moment, knowing that the beauty before them vanishes as quickly as it appears. Though the colours flee, the sentiment will last a lifetime.

Once around the orbit.

As the countdown ticks steadily to liftoff, Yuri the daydreamer is reminded that it is often the imaginable distance from something that helps us realize how much it means to us.

Dawn.

After several months on the road, the elephant and its new buddies arrive in cottage country under a temperate night sky. There is something uneasy about arriving to an unfamiliar place after dark. It can feel daunting at first but as the sun climbs over the horizon, any uncertainly melts away and an overwhelming comfort takes over. We are again home.

Rollercoastering.

Actions are braver and far more admirable than words. Here’s to you, the truly courageous.

A personal question.

The other day a clown asked this bluebird if she was happy. She replied gracefully, ‘As a matter of fact I am, because nights are growing warmer and many good days shall be upon us.’ Her optimism is inspiring.

Unfolding.

Under a cloudy sky, this daydreamer can still see a few stars shining through. He listens to their distant whispers and learns that happiness is an intricate series of coincidences and every bit of it deserves recognition.
