Manic Monday – How do I get this guy’s job?!

I want this man’s job!  He looks like he doesn’t have a care in the world….just chillin’ out at his corner shop reading the newspaper.   I took this image two years ago in Little India, Singapore.   Despite having taken thousands of photographs since then, this one regularly resurfaces in my brain… usually on days when I feel that I just want to sit around, read a book, and not deal with the petty b.s. that comes with working in corporate America.  That’s what I want to do today….

A Dream Deferred 

By Langston Hughes

What happens to a dream deferred?

Does it dry up
like a raisin in the sun?
Or fester like a sore–
And then run?
Does it stink like rotten meat?
Or crust and sugar over–
like a syrupy sweet?

Maybe it just sags
like a heavy load.

Or does it explode?

Langston Hughes contemplated this question as early as 1951 when he penned this poem.  It’s inspiring to know that we are not the only ones living the dreamed deferred.  

What is YOUR dream deferred?  Tell me in the comments below.
