Day 1329: Edinburgh dreams

When one is at the Edinburgh Festival Fringe, it’s dreamily natural to dream, to think about dreams, and to wonder if you’re dreaming.

Yesterday, I almost missed this dreamy sign because I was daydreaming in the Edinburgh mist and rain:


The people who dreamed up that sign didn’t dream of letting us know who they are, what their dream is and why we’re not in it. What do you suppose is the dream behind that Edinburgh sign?

Personally, I have a dream of peace, love, growth, laughter, music, health, and mutual respect, and you’re all in it.

Here are other dreamy Edinburgh sights I didn’t dream up, from yesterday:
















I had a  dreamy reason for taking this particular photo …


… of Sara Hirsch and Ben Fagan, who shared their dreams of childhood, adulthood, and success with us. I took that dreamy photo because of the dreamy song that was playing, which is a dreamy memory for one of my readers, Derrick J. Knight, who probably never dreamed I’d be mentioning him today.

This is for you, Derrick.


What do you find dreamiest about this post?  I can only dream that Jane Austen would find it too short.

Dreamy thanks to Edinburgh, to the St Andrews Revue for the great sketch comedy show Loop, to Sara Hirsch and Ben Fagan, to everyone else who helped me create this post, and to you — of course! — no matter what your dreams, here and now.

  1. You wouldn’t know, but the Doris Day song is a frequent one for British soccer crowds. It looks like you’re having nice weather by Scottish standards.

  2. I so agree with Jane Austen regarding good books! And how fun it must for you to be in Edinburgh to see Adon off to college there! Enjoy and know how blessed you are (you do!) my friend. ❤️ Sunny

  3. Ack! Aaron. Time for bed….😴

    • When I started this blog, I would never have dreamed Aaron would be attending Edinburgh University or that I would have wonderful and faithful readers like you, Sunny.

  4. Even in the rain Edinburgh loos dreamy!

    What was the dreamy reason at the corner of Cumberland Street?

    • We were looking at the building in the previous photo, Val, which was a former church and the venue where we saw the musical “Company” last night. Doesn’t that sound dreamy?

  14. Dream a little dream… our dreams are much the same! I love your dreamy post!

  15. Dream a little dream with me…🎼. Now i have that stuck in my head. I bet you were dreaming of warm socks and warm fires after wandering around in the rain. Looks like a fun place.

  16. Dreaming can make life easier and happier unless the dream turns into a nightmare.

  17. In the philosophy-ridden movie The Matrix, Morpheus says, “Have you ever had a dream that you were so sure was real? What if you were unable to wake from that dream? How would you know the difference between the dream world and the real world? ” And from your images and philosphy, what does it matter if life is a dream or not? Just do it!

  18. rain, that does look dreamy here 40 degrees of heat less dreamy I think 😀
    Maybe one day reality will take me to Edinburgh and not just my dream :3
    loved your post thank you for that 🙂
