It seems like recently you have been dreaming alot...there was cleaner and now this.

Once humans dream of "flying", which practically means travelling in the air, and now we are able to do that.

So some dreams are not as 'dreamy'. And from ur analysis, the cleaning business seem feasible!


Good luck to whichever God calls u to.

Hi JW,

Haha...yeah I am a dreamer in one sense - I dream about many things and many endeavours I could do - but many of those dreams are ...err....err....err ...really out of this world. I know my mortal limits - so my feet are still grounded...Haha...

So my next big dream is my second book project - need to turn that into a reality first. Cleaning business - can wait...hahaha
