To dream of being in a totally different situation, wondering how great life would be compared to the current situation is intriguing. The mind is unrealistically focused on what could be gained, with little attention to what would be lost.
Humans have a pretty incredible stretch of capabilities, and while the ideal of accumulating great material wealth is an overriding dream for many…it is usually those who seek a simpler route that find a greater sense of happiness.

All I wanted was to make ends meet and start building an auspicious future as an artist. Some characters turn to dope-dealing and other criminal acts while convincing themselves and others like them that they’re taking necessary means to remain gainfully employed but I can’t do things like that. I’d rather starve to death; not that that’s really an acceptable option to me either. I’m neither a sociopath nor an idiot. I’m conditioned to be something more. Not an angel but someone stronger and far more disciplined and respectable than a common hustler. Although difficult for many to believe in this cynical world, I really was just someone down on my luck.
