The Danger of Dreaming

Let me first say this, despite the title of this week's post, if your dream was to get to read two brand new Matthew 13 Blog posts in two weeks, then dream on, gentle reader, because your dream is coming true!

However, not all dreams come true.  Some would say that one should be realistic about hopes and dreams, as to escape the pain of disappointment should said hopes and dreams prove to be out of reach.  I do not subscribe to that philosophy.  I think it could be just as easily argued, that the only way to accomplish great things is to have great dreams.  I do think there is a danger in dreaming, but the danger lies not in disappointment, but somewhere else.

Why the long silence?  It's not that I don't miss you, or our one sided chats.  I do, and to prove it, here I am, once again placing pen to paper (or fingers to plastic keys), to resume the tale of my journey.  The journey of going from an aspiring, to a real life, honest to goodness filmmaker.  And what a journey it has been.
