I read an article in The New York Times about a group of homeless (or perhaps formally homeless) men in Poland who are building a boat to sail the seas. The ship building is part of the learning, and they have professionals to help teach them along the way.

I love this story because it reminds me how important it is to have dreams. For these men, their existence has been transformed by the prospect of a journey. Hopelessness turns to hope. Along the way, they learn new skills.

What is the ship that I build? What journey will I take? What journey will you take?
Pull out the maps and start the dream.
