Dream big

From an English perspective
At least, from my little corner of England
It seems an American concept
People
Left here
Went there
To dream big
Do big dreams need big spaces?

But the concept is far older
A prophet in ancient Israel
Told the people to enlarge their tents
Set their sights high
Expect great things.

Do we limit our scope
Refuse to hope
When keeping within
Safe confines?

    Not sure if that holds the same meaning today. So much has changed since then. There are many opportunities throughout the world.

    • Perhaps our capacity to dream has more to do with our heart or soul than geography. But how we acknowledge our dreams, whether we make much attempt to live them out, is, I think, influenced by our culture.
