To Dream the Impossible Dream

Featured-Man-Of-La-Mancha

Man of La Mancha

Yes, I had a dream last night that featured the cartoon drawing of Don Quixote, as shown on this image, above. It was totally unexpected, so I took note, as you do.

The use of the cartoon highlighted an interesting aspect of our inner character. We are braver and more fool-hearty than is sometimes good for us. We can seem to be a little bit crazy, too. Anyway, the idea of tilting at windmills is the what the dream’s message was.

The Impossible Dream

To dream … the impossible dream …
To fight … the unbeatable foe …
To bear … with unbearable sorrow …
To run … where the brave dare not go …
To right … the unrightable wrong …
To love … pure and chaste from afar …
To try … when your arms are too weary …
To reach … the unreachable star …
.
This is my quest, to follow that star …
No matter how hopeless, no matter how far …
To fight for the right, without question or pause …
To be willing to march into Hell, for a Heavenly cause …
.
And I know if I’ll only be true, to this glorious quest,
That my heart will lie will lie peaceful and calm,
when I’m laid to my rest …
And the world will be better for this:
That one man, scorned and covered with scars,
Still strove, with his last ounce of courage,
To reach … the unreachable star …
.

Don Quixote

Quixotic is an adjective we use to describe someone or something as “exceedingly idealistic; unrealistic and impractical.” Sounds just like me.

I was also thinking how quixotic with a Spanish pronunciation would sound like ‘chaotic’. Seems appropriate, somehow.

Here’s Gordon Lightfoot’s take:
