When most people dream, they imagine themselves in a situation that's somehow better than their real lives. They think of more money. Or power. A bigger house. Or maybe a sexier partner. They're selfish.
As I sat, rolling between my thumb and ring finger the gold-green marble that held my dream, I knew that mine was different.
