  1. I tried posting on here yesterday, but it went to your home page, I think. I love this post. I feel like it is such a great project – really important. You have a beautiful way of being with people. I love how you guide the telling of their dreams. I love every dream you have posted. Great work, great heart.

  2. Wonderful project Boho. When I was playing some futebol in Sierra Leone and Liberia, I came into contact with some very warm friendly boys who had passionate dreams of coming to America for a university education while playing futebol. The contrast between where they were and dreamt of going, and me being there where I dreamt of being…struck me as very peculiar. Why and how is too long to put here, but suffice it to say I found their simple lives — naturally surrounding many hours in the day (all things?) around futebol — to be so much more an attractive future! I wanted to there or ANY country that was passionate about The Beautiful Game, and they wanted to be in a country who was mostly bored by it. 😛

    1. Sounds like you had an amazing time traveling! Did you go there to play futebol?
      Isn’t it odd how our dreams differ so much? I found the same thing in Peru – they wanted to go to university and learn English and get jobs in the cities and I wanted to leave it all behind, learn Spanish and live in the jungle forever. Do people always dream for what they don’t have? Maybe we are drawn to the things that we don’t have because on some deeper level we want to gain a more whole perspective of life? Hmmm… But coming from the quick paced western world I agree with you – the simple life is where it’s at for me!

      1. I was in both West African nations playing futebol, yes; right before the violent civil wars began in the 90’s. My agent swept me out of there quick, like most foreign futebollers there. It got real bad. From there I went to Rio de Janeiro, Brasil to play.

        You plucked the words & thought right out of my clinically bizarre head Liv! Yes, people always dream for what they don’t have. It is the strangest urge in some (most?) people. I think it has primarily been a Western mindset due to the economic advantages created by Western democracies and sub-forms of capitalism, not to mention the Age of Colonialism and Imperialism of the 17th and 18th centuries. Those Western values have now permeated third-world countries. Now whether those Western influences are filled with success or value is the REAL debate.

        Indeed, I prefer to be a human-BEING rather than a human-doing. Less toxins and anxieties inside my body and soul! 😉

  3. I must agree. This is a wonderful project and I can’t wait to read more. We should all hold on to our dreams and feel happy everyday as if we are living our dreams. In a way we are if we take one step everyday to reach them and happiness is a state of mind not a place to go:)
    Keep up the good work!!
    Love and Light,
    Sandy

    1. I am so happy that you enjoy the project! I find it fascinating to know what makes people’s heart sing – and I feel we should hold onto it and cherish it and move towards it, like you say, every day taking small steps! Imagine what a happy place the world would be if everyone was doing what actually made them happy 🙂 An ecstatic dance of creativity!
      Will be catching some more dreams soon. Thanks so much for your comment Sandy! Sending blessings from Africa xxxxx

  4. Hi Fellow Hobo, thank you for visiting my blog! Loving yours! I agree with all the sentiments shared here and I feel the same as you – I think our dreams are pretty much the same: Equality – as difficult as that may be to achieve. I think if we keep in mind that we are all equal while at the same time different, we stand a chance. However I can also understand how from these ladies’ point of view equality is a pipe-dream… I think the problem is the acute disparity between rich and poor in some places. Being faced continuously with people who are visibly much better off financially and otherwise – in terms of opportunities, education, etc, must be very hard, especially if a lot of poor(er) people thought democracy would bring that in South Africa, only to find that only a small group has become more equal. Having said that, this situation also exists in many other places (the disparity), for example Brazil and Chile. (I arrived in South America from South Africa 3 weeks ago and still exploring). I’m not sure perfect economic equality is really possible, but I do think that the extreme disparity is creating a massive imbalance in the world, echoing the sentiments of the lady where she spoke about how in the past people used to barter and trade and exchange goods without profit being such a major factor and causing so much competitiveness and its side effects like jealosy. Anyway, before I write an essay 😉 here is a blog post I wrote some time ago to express some of my thoughts on this subject: http://gypsycafe.org/2008/05/11/equality/
    Take care and keep up the good work. From a fellow Gypsy
