If only dreams were dreams


What if nothing exists and we’re all in somebody’s dream..?
(Woody Allen – american director and “anti hero”)


A day off in the very southeastern german natural area
pushes one to consider whether it is a dream or not
but the smell of a very sweaty mountain biker (me) is no dream.
The tiny word “if” is a dominant factor in our daily lives, maybe too much..?
1142If you can dream—and not make dreams your master;
If you can think—and not make thoughts your aim,
If you can meet with Triumph and Disaster
And treat those two impostors just the same:.
If you can bear to hear the truth you’ve spoken
Twisted by knaves to make a trap for fools,
Or watch the things you gave your life to, broken,
And stoop and build’em up with worn-out tools;
(A part of the poem “If” written by Rudyard Kipling – famous english poet)
Challenge – favorite places I wish I had visited earlier than I did – 3/10
think the fact that it took so many years of my life before it was visited first time
together with the adjacent czech forest Šumava represents the Bavarian Forest
the largest contiguous forest area in Central Europe.

  1. I know and like the poem of Kipling! Wonderful pictures as usually, Drake, you’re great!
    About this: “The tiny word “if” is a dominant factor in our daily lives, maybe too much..?”, yes, I believe it is a dominant factor too much… unfortunately. Too much ties, duties, lack of freedom.
    Only in my heart I can do anything I like and I’m free to be what I want.
    “The smell of a very sweaty mountain biker” is no dream but it’s still natural 😉

      I like Kipling too… 🙂

      Thanks a lot really appreciate your much too kind words… 🙂

      Don’t know if the smell of a very sweaty mountain biker is natural..? “lol lol” 😉

  2. ciao! interesting that the ‘scent’ of sweat reminds you it is not a dream. ‘if’ is a supposition…i suppose that it is ‘all’ relative:) great shots and kipling rocks 🙂

    • #.thebestdressup
      Thanks a lot, so glad you like it – really appreciate your words… 🙂

      After riding the bike for 2-3 hours – so it’s the bath which is the dream… 😉 😉

  3. I dreamed I was dreaming then woke up. Then I thought I was awake, but it turned out I was still dreaming, and woke up again. I thought for sure I was really awake, finally, but was still dreaming and woke up again. I woke up many times before I was really, truly awake.
    Did this ever happen to you?
    I believe I am awake now. _Resa xo

      • ♥♥♥♥♥♥ It is so beautiful! 🙂
        I’m so happy I don’t eat animals.
        I love all of them, and
        “I don’t eat animals, and they don’t eat me
        I don’t eat animals cause I love them, you see.
        I don’t eat animals, I want nothing dead in me.”
        – Melanie

        I hope you still like me! Much love, respect and admiration- Resa xo

          • Oh!!! I know. (Love) 🙂
            I went through a period of time when I barely ate! I weighed about 90 Lbs. for 2 years.
            I imagined carrots crying. “lol” 🙂
            All I could do was stand in the garden and pick things and eat them as fast as possible. It was my raw diet.
            I’ve learned to accept the fact that if I am to live,plants must die. “lol” 😎 🙂
            Most of my friends eat meat, but I don’t want to.
            I even cook chicken for them sometimes! (Free range, grain fed and anti-biotic free, of course)
            However…..darling Drake, I have never cooked a duck!
            So much love to you! _Resa xo
