Dreams on the Restroom WallJuly 19, 2012
You don’t think about someone writing a dream statement on a bathroom stall. But, as I entered a restroom stall at one of my favorite local eateries, that’s exactly what I found.
Generally, I’m not all that interested in what’s written on bathroom walls in public restrooms. When I was a teenager it was more along the lines of “For a good time call __________,” or “____________ is going to get their ____ kicked when I find him/her,” or “____________ is a cheating, lying _________.” They weren’t messages of hope, or yearning. They weren’t messages of positive thought. But for some reason, this message on this day caught my eye and I read it:
Then I began to read others:
Most of them spoke the yearnings of the primarily younger generations that frequent the café. But, they also spoke to the yearnings we all feel, no matter what age. We still long for one dream to come true. We still grapple with our aesthetic appearance, “Do the lines on my face make me look older than I am?” “Now that this stage of life is closing, how do I transition, and then who will I be?”
No matter how young or how old we are, we all still question, dream and yearn. These young people are doing it “out loud,” while we older folks are doing it quietly in our heads and journals. Or occasionally in a blog post.
We are all the same. No matter what age.
