A Dream ...

Lake Louise, Alberta Canada 2008

is a daring adventure, A journey to carry you far --

For when you can hold a dream in your heart, you surely can reach any star!

A DREAM is a beautiful vision that looks beyond what you can see,

Then lifts you and guides you and grows strong inside you to help you be all you can be ...

A DREAM is your door to tomorrow,

A secret reflection of you,
A threshold that leads to a wonderful future where nothing's too good to be true ...
-- Amanda Bradley
