This week goes perfectly with one of my favourite scenes from one of my favourite movies ever, Waking Life. As you might recall, this movie is in my (current) very top 5 and it has high chances of hanging up there for a long while... I also dedicated an entire post to this movie some time ago. The scene I selected for today is "Are you a dreamer?" (after all, a leitmotif in 'Waking Life') and I also wrote down for you the whole dialogue/monologue between (the voices of) the main character - Wiley Wiggins and "the man in the train" - David Martinez:
You a dreamer?
I haven't seen too many around lately. Things have been tough lately for dreamers. They say dreaming is dead... that no one does it anymore. It's not dead, it's just that it's been forgotten. Removed from our language. Nobody teaches it, so no one knows it exists. The dreamer's banished to obscurity. I'm trying to change all that, and I hope you are too. By dreaming, every day. Dreaming with our hands and dreaming with our minds. Our planet is facing the greatest problems it's ever faced, ever. So whatever you do, don't be bored. This is absolutely the most exciting time we could have possibly hoped to be alive! And things are just starting.[my emphasis in bold: make it your motto]
More: the music in the background is in perfect harmony with the text: "In dreams" by Roy Orbison. You can also listen to the full version.
