Dreaming of You
Dreams can disappear - poof, just like that.  Where do those dreams go? Are they floating out there
with no place to land - songs not sung, dances not danced, all those dreams that will never come true?

Marjorie Klein, Test Pattern, 2000, p. 204

Dear Friends and Schoolmates,   

   Nothing like sad ol' love songs.....

BONUS - Dreaming of You - Selena, 1995


"Dreaming of You" is the name of a Selena love song written by Franne Golde and Tom Snow. It was Selena's biggest single, peaking at #21 on the Billboard Hot 100. The song was released at the end of the first quarter of 1995, after Selena's murder. It appeared on the album of the same name, which was released posthumously.

Robert Johnson of Planet Music, a record chain in Houston, told New York Times that people in Houston were buying copies of the album Dreaming of You because of the single "Dreaming of You".[1] 15 years after her death, Teresa Jusino of Popmatters wrote: "Even the most sheltered English-speaking music fan might not know Selena's name, but if you mention her hit singles, "Dreaming of You", or "I Could Fall in Love," they'll likely respond with 'I remember that song!', or 'I love that one!'."[2]

Peter Watrous of The New York Times wrote: "It's not that she didn't sing well in English; she spoke English substantially better than she did Spanish. It's that the English song writers didn't step up to the bar with their best material. The music is faceless commerce. That she sings it so well on the album suggests that she had a good chance of success, working lush ballads in an anonymous pop style that Disney has mastered..."[3]

From Allan Hanrahan ('55) of VA - 04/05/18:


I appreciate your Editions, and have even made a couple of modest contributions in the past.

May I place an ad on NNHS65? I would expect to pay for it, of course. It would be for a book of mine that has been selling for a few years now. Its title is "Times & Places: A Glimpse of Life on the Virginia Peninsula."

Allan Hanrahan

   WOWZERONI! Certainly, Allan, I'd be delighted to promote your book!


   It's now appearing in TYPHOONMART, and all advertising is free.

"A charming compilation of work from this keen observer of the Virginia Peninsula scene includes his line-drawings as well as his accompanying historical and local narrative. This is a must-have for the student of Virginia architecture and Virginia byways as these structures give way, one by one, to the wrecking ball." - Google Books

"If you want to learn more about the Peninsula’s history, this book, which costs $12.95, is a quick and easy way to appreciate your surroundings. It can be purchased on Locally, it is available at Anderson's Home & Garden Showplace,11250 Jefferson Ave., Newport News, at all Barnes & Noble bookstores, and from the author at" - Daily Press, January 7, 2014

Marianne Forrestal's Field of Dreams Afghan


Amy Gunderson's Dreaming of Spring Hat - "Here at Universal Yarn, the plants are getting mixed signals. Is it time to bloom? We as crafters are getting mixed signals too – shall we turn to warm weather fibers, or bundle up just a little while longer? We thought we’d split the difference – a warm hat, but a quick project, so we can enjoy it and then be done when more moderate weather rolls in. And because, like the flowers, we are ready to see the sun, we’re calling this one Dreaming of Spring."

Dreaming of You

Written by
Franne Golde and Tom Snow (b. 1947)

Posthumously recorded by Selena (16 April 1971 – 31 Mar 1995), 14 Aug 1995

Late at night, when all the world is sleeping
I stay up and think of you
And I wish on a star that, somewhere, you are
Thinking of me, too

'Cause I'm dreaming of you tonight
'Til tomorrow, I'll be holding you tight
And there's nowhere in the world I'd rather be
Than here in my room, dreaming about you and me

Wonder if you ever see me, and I
Wonder if you know I'm there
If you looked in my eyes, would you see what's inside?
Would you even care?

I just wanna hold you close; but, so far
All I have are dreams of you
So I wait for the day and the courage to say
How much I love you
Yes, I do

I'll be dreaming of you tonight
'Til tomorrow, I'll be holding you tight
And there's nowhere in the world I'd rather be
Than here in my room, dreaming about you and me

Ah, ah
I can't stop dreaming of you
(No puedo dejar de pensar en ti)
I can't stop dreaming
(Cómo te necesito)
I can't stop dreaming of you
(Mi amor, cómo te extraño)

Late at night, when all the world is sleeping
I stay up and think of you
And I still can't believe that you came up to me
And said, "I love you."
I love you, too

Now, I'm dreaming with you tonight
'Til tomorrow and for all of my life
And there's nowhere in the world I'd rather be
Than here in my room, dreaming with you endlessly

Dreaming with you tonight
(With you tonight)
'Til tomorrow, I'll be holding you tight
And there's nowhere in the world I'd rather be
(Rather be)
Than here in my room, dreaming with you endlessly
(I'll be dreaming)

(Of you tonight)
(And I'll be holding you tight tonight)
(With you tonight)
