I’m not fond of dreams and I don’t like people who goes off to reach for their dreams
A Japanese wife said that in a NatGeo programme I watched earlier. It was a comment on her husband’s ambition to be a bona fide rodeo cowboy, to be a bull rider. She said it with a straight face I didn’t know if she was totally serious or making a joke.
How can you hate having dreams? That was the actual word she used, kirai.
Dreams are, for me, an essential ingredient of life. To not have a dream is just… unthinkable.
