The World according to Dina

Broken Dreams
Geplatzte Träume

Thinking about dreams we noticed that following your dreams is often praised in a one-sided manner. Basically there is nothing wrong with it except it’s quite naive. Dreams and especially grand dreams are quite often an illusion. So it’s good and healing that those dreams don’t come true. The last scene of the film “Zorbas the Greek” got us thinking when Alexis is so happy about the great crash of a dream.

Denken wir über Träume nach, fällt uns auf, dass oft einseitig das Folgen seiner Träume gepriesen wird. Das ist grundsätzlich richtig, aber naiv. Träume und speziell grandiose Träume haben häufig etwas Illusionistisches. Es ist geradezu gut und heilsam, dass diese Träume nicht Erfüllung gehen. Uns hat die Endszene des Films „Alexis Sorbas“ zu denken gegeben, in der sich Alexis über den großartigen Zusammenbruch eines Traums freut.

    I agree. I would add that learning to love the present moment should be a dream come true.
