i have a dream today

November 5, 2008

 

martinlutherkingjrLet’s pretend. Let’s pretend for an hour, for a minute, for four years, for the rest of our lives. Let’s pretend we woke up and forgot we knew everything, that I am not me and you are not you.  Let’s pretend that yesterday is gone and today is a place and that time is thick and spreads laterally if you push. Let’s pretend that we won’t be tired tomorrow, that ideals do not get forgotten at 6 am. Let’s pick up the smiles we dropped and wear them someplace nice. Let’s pretend that change is possible, that now is not as it always was, that we solved all of our problems yesterday, that we are young.

Let’s pretend.
