Carroll's Journey: If I Could Dream

Everyone and everything is trying to get to someplace. Life is just one part of many stops in which we experience along the journey.

When I die, I don't know to where my next adventure will begin, but if I could choose, I think I would want to begin the next phase in the moment when I had my first play-date with my little nephew, Caden.

We played derby cars and it was a wonderful day. And after spending a few thousand years in that moment, I would then like to travel to when... I was a young boy myself and go back to when I was walking with my dog Pepper in the woods one day. Nothing exciting occurred that day, just a boy walking in the woods with his dog. It was just simply a beautiful day. I don't know why I remember that day, or why i dream of it from time to time in my sleep, but it was a great moment of peace for me.

After spending a couple hundred years in that moment, i would then go to a day when I was sitting on the couch and watching a show on TV. My mother walked into the room and handed me a cup of vanilla pudding she had just made. She sat down on the couch with me with her own cup of pudding and she and I watched TV together and eating our pudding. I can't remember the show we watched, but that aint the point. I just remember watching Tv and eating pudding with her and thinking how much I loved my mother. And I would like to stay in that moment for a few hundred years.

After that, I would like to soar through the universe and see all of the amazing sights it has to offer. Maybe live inside a nebula for a few thousand years. That would be nice.

I don't know where the journey continues after this, or maybe I do, but one thing is for sure - I hope there isn't as much pain in the next life as there is in this one.

A man can dream, can't he?
