No vision and you perish;
No ideal, and you're lost;
Your heart must ever cherish
Some faith at any cost.
Some hope, some dream to cling to,
Some rainbow in the sky,
Some melody to sing to,
Some service that is high.

Welcome to Wyndspirit Dreams! One morning after a stormy night at work, so early that the sun was barely up, I was preparing to go home and I happened to glance out the window. There was a spectacular rainbow arcing over the trees. My first impulse was to share it with somebody, but there was nobody around. "Well," I thought to myself, "I guess I have my own private rainbow!" Perhaps some of my coworkers did see it, and I certainly wasn’t the only person to see it at all. Still, at that window, at that moment, there was just me, with my very own private rainbow.

I believe each one of us has a private rainbow, though maybe not as visible as the one I had that morning. Don’t we all have one or two secret dreams that we never share with anybody? Maybe the dream is so far from reality that we know we’d be laughed at. Or maybe it just seems too private, too personal to share with anybody else. Maybe it would be cheapened if we even spoke it aloud. We know full well that it will never come true, but then we really don’t want it to, because we know the reality would be disappointing, and we would lose the dream. The treasure is the dream itself.

Each one of us is a unique being. I believe there are deeply personal aspects of each of us that nobody else could ever understand. I think these most secret dreams are probably the truest manifestation of who we really are. So cherish them, and appreciate your own private rainbow!
