It's important to have dreams, because dreams are what keeps us going even when we're in the midst of the darkest places in our lives. Having lost everything I own (save a pair of pajamas and my cat), I've been in one of those dark places for a while now. Luckily, I have a dream. This:
It's silly, but a little farm with a bunch of freakish animals really is exactly what I want. And knowing that I have someone who shares that same dream and will be right there with me (he'll have to take care of all pig duties as I refuse to have anything to do with them) makes even the darkest places just a little brighter.
