A dear school friend of mine posted this on facebook today. When I read it, a bell rang a high pure sound inside me.
“Found a lovely poem today on Poetry. Had to share it. Its called “This Is the Dream,” by Norwegian poet Olav H. Hauge, translated by Robert Bly and Robert Hedin:
This is the dream we carry through the world
that something fantastic will happen
that it has to happen
that time will open by itself
that doors shall open by themselves
that the heart will find itself open
that mountain springs will jump up
that the dream will open by itself
that we one early morning will slip into a harbor
that we have never known.”
I think I’ve found my theme for The Sketchbook Project.
