This curriculum will be based on the book, "Dream."
We will explore how our dreams help us to create the life we want.
Said Vincent van Gogh of his well-known painting The Starry Night (1889), "For my part, I know nothing with any certainty, but the sight of stars makes me dream."
From the time we're children, we make wishes on stars... "Star light, star bright/First star I see tonight/I wish I may, I wish I might/Have the wish I wish tonight."
As we grow older, the stars may mean different things to each of us.
Wrote Antoine de Saint-Exupéry in The Little Prince:
All men have the stars, but they are not the same things for different people. For some, who are travelers, the stars are guides. For others they are no more than little lights in the sky. For others, who are scholars, they are problems. For my businessman they are wealth. But all these stars are silent. You -- you alone -- will have the stars as no one else has them.
From the smallest personal beginnings to the largest human triumphs, why are we here if not to dream? Dream begins at the end of the rainbow with the Dream Chest, a magical portal between what is and what can be. A traveler wandering in the desert comes upon the Dream Chest and opens it. A wise old star emerges and asks, "What's your dream?"
As the last page in the award-winning book Dream reminds us:
Look up, up, up into those billion billion sparkling stars. What dreams do you find? Little dreams, big dreams, each a hope looking for a life to make it real – a life like yours.
This is your chance to share, explore, discuss, discover, create. Dreams give us hope and direction. They challenge us to find the very best part of ourselves. We all need dreams, no matter how young or how old. And the world needs more dreamers, because dreamers are the ones with the creativity and courage to try new things, overcome obstacles, and make a difference in their own life and the lives of others.
