"a caterpillar doesn't just grow into a butterfly. a caterpillar must undergo metamorphosis, and a cocoon is where a caterpillar risks it all: enters total chaos, undergoes total rebuilding, and is born to a new way of living. only in taking the risk of entering that inert cocoon can the caterpillar go from dormancy to potency, from ugliness to beauty."

wish

because dreaming is free...
because dreaming is for you and me...

-¤-

as a child, i often looked up to watch the night sky.
the stars a-twinkling up there have always attracted me
and have always kept me thinking of possibilities and of impossibilities.
they fed my imagination and fueled my curiosity...
and i made so many of my wishes upon them,
and hung a thousand and one of my dreams up with them...

When you wish upon a star
Makes no difference who you are
Anything your heart desires
Will come to you

i admit without shame that until now i still wish upon them.
no, i don't wait for the "falling stars"...
when i look up at the night sky,
i discreetly choose the first star that catches my eye
and wish upon it the first wish that i could think of at that moment,
absurd or not my wish may be...

If your heart is in your dream
No request is too extreme
When you wish upon a star
As dreamers do

not all of my wishes can come true, i know.
but i've never thought of stopping myself from wishing...
because they keep me going, they keep me hoping...

Fate is kind
She brings to those who love
The sweet fulfillment of
Their secret longing

i'll not lose anything if my wishes don't come true,
but i have something to gain if they do come true...
and that's the comforting thought with wishing.

Like a bolt out of the blue
Fate steps in and sees you through
When you wish upon a star
Your dreams come true

sometimes, you get to remember that the songs you heard as a child can do wonders for your (and probably, other's) days. sometimes, too, being a child at heart ain't so bad for the soul.

note: words in italics are lyrics of the song when you wish upon a star from walt disney's pinocchio.
