The Power of Dreams


Paul McCartney doing Carpool Karaoke is one of the best video clips I’ve seen in a long time.

In it, McCartney describes how the inspiration for the song, “Let it Be”, came to him in a dream where his deceased mom assured him that everything would be okay and that he should just let it be.

When I was pregnant with my son, my grandmother – who had passed a few years earlier – came to me in a dream and, too, assured me that everything would be okay.

Her name was Mary – like in the song.

When I awoke from the dream, I looked at the clock. The time displayed was my grandmother’s birthday.

My son, who was named after her, inherited her jovial disposition.

The power of dreams.
