I read that Bendel's had a window "quoting Proust," but Googling around didn't bring up the quote or any additional info. A fellow blogger and fellow writer has unearthed the details.
This is the Proust quote:
"If a little dreaming is dangerous, the cure for it is not to dream less but to dream more, to dream all the time."
The nights this fall have produced some of the most incredible dreams for both my husband and me. Sometimes we tell each other, "we ate pork last night, and pork promotes weird dreams," but the night before it was chicken and last night beef. Two nights ago I dreamt that I was giving my husband detailed instructions about telling our friends they couldn't come for Thanksgiving dinner because I was shipping off to Iraq. Bloody unlikely.
Dream more. Dream all the time. Visions of sugarplums, whatever they are.
