Henri Bendel's Christmas Window a la Proust

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.

Are you interested in having an explanation of why blogging ? I can give you mine, by means of Proust: "You may say, Sir, that this is a work of the free time... just to tell you that an active profession is not the only thing that may deprive a man of his time… But like certain insects or certain vegetables, an instinct has pushed to me to place my seeds, that I think fecund, and, despite the fact that they are badly lodged, there will still dwelling less precarious than in my brain…"
