Dream lofty dreams

Dream lofty dreams, and as you dream, so you shall become. Your vision is the promise of what you shall one day be; your ideal is the prophecy of what you shall at last unveil.
--James Allen (1864-1912) British writer

She's an internet phenomenon and a singing sensation -- this plain, unassuming, quirky 47 year old woman who appeared before a cynical audience for the show 'Britain's Got Talent.' Nothing in Susan Boyle's initial appearance gave any indication of her extrordinary talent. I love this video of her powerful rendition of "I Dreamed a Dream" from the musical "Les Miserables." It's funny, touching, suprising and inspirational. And a great reminder to us all to dream lofty dreams. (Above: Sunset at Watauga Lake in Carter County, TN)
