Today’s Thinking Out Loud reflection is on Cervantes  work, Don Quixote.

“When life itself seems lunatic, who knows where madness lies? Perhaps to be too practical is madness. To surrender dreams — this may be madness. Too much sanity may be madness — and maddest of all: to see life as it is, and not as it should be!”
― Miguel de Cervantes Saavedra, Don Quixote

Note: Are you a dreamer? Do you dare see life as it should be and not as it is? If we dare to live our lives as we believe the world should be, we have to be prepared for the criticism of those who lost the ability to dream. They fear a world where there is no global warming. They fear a world where love reigns. They fear a world where people of every race, culture, ethnicity, and gender can live peacefully together. I prefer to be a dreamer and believe the dream is within our grasp.
