Dream Things True
Romeo: I dreamt a dream tonight.
Mercutio: And so did I.
Romeo: Well, what was yours?
Mercutio: That dreamers often lie.
Romeo: In bed asleep, while they do dream things true.
(Romeo and Juliet, 1, 4, 50-52)
I like the double-meaning of “lie” (recline/fib), and Romeo’s assertion that we can dream the truth. Fittingly, the Rule of Mirrors Blog Tour stops today at A Dream Within A Dream for an interview and a giveaway. Thank you, Steph, for your hospitality!
