never stop dreaming.

“We plan our lives according to a dream
that came to us in our childhood,
and we find that life alters our plans.
And yet, at the end, from a rare height,
we also see that our dream was our fate.
It's just that providence had other ideas
as to how we would get there.
Destiny plans a different route,
or turns the dream around,
as if it were a riddle,
and fulfills the dream
in ways we couldn't have expected.”
-Ben Okri

p.s. Ben Okri was a Nigerian author who used magic realism
to convey the social and political chaos in his country, 1959.
