100 Dreams

Published: 2018-10-10Last updated: 2019-02-25

I have found that like most things, dreaming gets easier the more you practise; you live in the place of possibility.

With that, I tasked myself with writing a list of 100 dreams. It wasn't easy, but was worth pushing to complete. I started to recover my passions.

As I tick things off, I'll replace them with another. The goal isn't to finish but to always have one more thing to dream for.
