Dreams and Illusions - Blog Party - Chapter 3

I´m  dreaming  of ....

 being an Eagle.....

...an Eagle in Mongolia,



...and well kept...

...by an Eagle Hunter...


....but being free...

....to fly, border-less...

...and right up to the sky!



When I heard about today's theme,
Ry Cooder's song "Across the border line"
crossed my mind:

There’s a place where I’ve been told
Every street is paved with gold
And it’s just across the borderline
And when it’s time to take your turn
Here’s one lesson that you must learn
You could lose more than you’ll ever hope to find

When you reach the broken promised land
And every dream slips through your hands
Then you’ll know that it’s too late to change your mind
’Cause you’ve paid the price to come so far
Just to wind up where you are
And you’re still just across the borderline

Up and down the Rio Grande
A thousand footprints in the sand
Reveal a secret no one can define
The river flows on like a breath
In between our life and death
Tell me who’s the next to cross the borderline

En la triste oscuridad 
Hoy tenemos que cruzar 
Este río que nos llama más allá 

But hope remains when pride is gone
And it keeps you moving on
Calling you across the borderline

When you reach the broken promised land
Every dream slips through your hands
And you’ll know it’s too late to change your mind

’Cause you pay the price to come so far
Just to wind up where you are

Now you’re still just across the borderline

In utter stillness, the bright light,
pervading all, enfolds the great void.
Worldly things, when closely looked at,
are like illusions in a dream.


I have reached and received so much in my life,
more than I've ever dreamed....

...and keep my

   Vision  and  Hope  up...

... that the dreams come true

for  all those people in the world 
who are daily battling for a better life.

"Ich habe einen Traum...."

  12. Karin,
    Why does it not surprise me that you would dream of becoming an eagle? You soar high- it's just your nature and I wouldn't be a bit surprised to find you as an eagle in the next life!

  13. A evocative post with superb images.....it must be an extraordinary sensation to fly and hover on the updrafts. There is a particular majesty in the flight of an eagle. Thank you Karin.

    As the Eagle Soars so does the soul! Our dreams are limitless and free as the Eagle glides the skies! Beautifully offered to us Karin...as a gift from your heart!
