Have You Ever Dreamed Of Such A Place?

I have been feeling nostalgic the past few days ever since the poem ‘Desiderata‘ came up during a recent conversation. (I posted about it here.) I’m being transported back to the 70s…..

Now, the film “Lost Horizon” is being brought back to my awareness. I’ve been playing the soundtrack from the 1973 film over and over again. Baby boomers can relate again, I’m sure! 🙂

Do you do dream of such a place? A place “far away from it all, where the air that we breathe is soft and clean, where children play in fields of green, and the sound of guns doesn’t pound in our ears anymore?”

I do! I dream of such a place. I long for such a place. I have been dreaming about it…envisioning it — back when I first saw the film when I was only around 12 years old.

The ever-optimist that I am, I know that such a “Lost Horizon” will be found. Such a place can be created. We can create it. We already are taking steps towards it.

And after I publish this post, I’ll cap off my Sunday evening watching this feel-good movie!

Have you ever dreamed of a place
Far away from it all
Where the air you breathe is soft and clean
And children play in fields of green
And the sound of guns
Doesn’t pound in your ears (anymore)

Have you ever dreamed of a place
Far away from it all
Where the winter winds will never blow
And living things have room to grow
And the sound of guns
Doesn’t pound in your ears anymore.

Many miles from yesterday before you reach tomorrow
Where the time is always just today
There’s a lost horizon waiting to be found.
There’s a lost horizon
Where the sound of guns
Doesn’t pound in your ears
Anymore.
