How much is a dream?
I'm a fan major fan of spontaneous behaviour but sometimes life can really smack you in the face and give you all kind of things that you're not only unprepared for but will literally shake up your whole life. Natural disasters, man made disasters, unpredictable events, they really can take you through a whole roller coaster of emotions.
To be as safe as you can there are things that you always plan for and predict but sometimes there are just the moments that you're thrown into the deep end and you just have to deal with it.
start kicking those legs because no-one else will save you but you.
