Someone once told me that dreams are free. They were right. But I've also learned that dreaming can be scary. There are days when I don't want to dream, when I'd rather stay safely hidden where I am. On those days I'm grateful for the people in my life who encourage me to keep dreaming. They remind me that dreams need communities to help them come to life. I'm also learning that dreaming takes practice. That I have to practice seeing the truth of the situations around me, face them with courage, and then ask, "What if?".  C.S. Lewis says,  "You are never too old to set another goal or to dream a new dream.", so here I am trying my best to keep dreaming for the rest of my life.  I'm working to practice the art of dreaming and creating new dreams and ways to search after the beautiful in our world. - Sarah
