Dreams are renewable. No matter what our age or condition, there are still untapped possibilities within us and new beauty waiting to be born.

Playing in the shadows

I watched a really touching documentary recently and if you have a moment or ever come across it, watch it.  It makes you realise that no matter what troubles you face, there are others that have more to worry about and still turn out ok.  Playing in the shadows is about a group of children living in a poor suburb in Sydney.  Some of them are happy living the way they do and can't seem to see anything better for the future, whilst others have ambition.  Some fail at things and then never ever truely try again for fear of a repeated failure.  Its sad. 

In a way we live insignificant lives in the scheme of the universe.  Many of us will go unremembered in the decades or centuries after we die, whilst few others will leave memorable marks.  I guess it doesn't matter what you achieve in life, but what you try to achieve.  If you try hard enough, usually good will come of it.
