We dream from the moment that we are in our mother’s womb… we dream of getting out to life & living . We dream since we were born… we dream of touching the sky , we dream of flying with birds.. Though you may never have a dream come true but we dream.
It rains , its cloudy , its windy and its hard to look around yet we dream.
People say that we are our thoughts , our wishes & our dreams but why its difficult to see that . Why we always see a dark end in our dreams.. why we see things never coming true. Life is not always happy .. dreams are not always coming true. And we will never make it true.
Staring up at the stars, wondering if I can ever let it go , if I can ever let go all my tears. If I can ever be myself again.. Sometimes its really hard for tears to fall down .
You can’t live without a dream to give a push forward, without something to follow… without a goal in life. And who knows it may come true when you least expect it .
A dream for a better life for people who have been through a lot , a dream of having kids for a unfertile couples, a dream of passing exams for hard working students. A dream of freedom for the prisoner; Yes ! we just dream and we let it all to the destiny. They show us the way and the path for our life , for what we want to be .
There is a quote that says” If you don’t have a dream , then how you’re gonna have a dream come true ” ; and somehow I agree.
Our dreams are two big for this small world, that is the reason behind it . We are all afraid of getting disappointed ; afraid of the nightmares that we may already are having . Afraid of getting hurt while we are chasing an unknown dream.
And yet we dream , coz we have no choice but try. Its really so great when you see it come true , so great that you will forget all the hardships you have gone through .
Others can’t dream for us.. and no matter how it is to make it , nothing is so hard as living aimlessly in life. Dream deep and reach high .
” She wants to sink somewhere , slowly to release , to sleep . perchance to dream.”

A remarkable novel . ” SORRY “a word that means a lot , though sometimes its hard to say . it has two aspects , which Jones tried to present through her novel.
One was the sorry that people felt for the young damaged girl; Perdita and her wrecked widow mother. That was a hard feeling that concealed deep in them. The pitiful eyes of the people around in there small little town at western Australia .
The story takes place during the Second World War. When an English anthropologist ; Nicolas travels to Australia along with h is wife , whom was annoyed from the whole situation. ” Sorry “ a fiction , imagery… and with some political issues about how the aborigines were treated those days.
Jones presented that in a very tragedian poetic way, how a child’s innocence is stolen or just drifted away by things that were quite complicated .Was it because of her distant mean father , who treated her mother badly; or because of the mother whose far from her , lives her own Shakespearean poem . Or the murder of her father. Maybe the war that she had witnessed since the day she was born. Thus she never thought or even imagined that it might come to an end .
Among all that struggle to prove her existence in the world .Perdita meets Billy and Mary, an aborigines , with whom she has created a very strong bond ; a bond of friendship & family .That was somehow an introduction of the present of a better world. A world of happiness , a world of love , a world of sacrifice . A world that made our little Perdita realize that her life might eventually change .Regardless of what happened in the past , of her parents , of everything she might was. All at once she starts to get involved in the wheel of life , meeting doctor Oblov which helped her overcome her stutter .Living with a lovely foster family , outstanding in her studies. Trying to strengthen her fragile relation with her sick mother . All that seemed hard but was not impossible .Perdita changes the verses of her life .
Only then , she receives a letter said that Mary died. Her only sister & best friend passed away .She was shaken ; it was like a hard slap from life on her tiny face, a one she couldn’t take.
Now comes the second aspect of SORRY . when Perdita regrets not saying to her only sister Sorry! because she had to give her freedom away & carry the burden that Perdita was to carry. She was the reason for that has happened to Mary.
To find out what was that , you have read the book.
I enjoyed reading this book , because every little page makes you interested in knowing what’s next. A novel that illustrated a lot about life , about hardships , about war ; what it takes with it other than people’s life , and most of all about Friendship.
No matter how dark it is .. the sun will rise again.. And a new day will start. So cheer up & try to make the best of it .
Sometimes loneliness becomes your best friend.. Sometimes things just don’t go the way we want.
