Any Dream Will Do

“The future belongs to those who believe in the beauty of their dreams.”

- Eleanor Roosevelt
(11 Oct 1884 - 07 Nov 1962)

Dear Friends and Schoolmates,

    I myself have always been a great believer in dreams - day dreams, night dreams - any dreams at all.  Ya gotta have a dream, right??

BONUS #2 - - Any Dream Will Do - Donny Osmond


"Any Dream Will Do" is a popular song written by Andrew Lloyd Webber and Tim Rice for the 1968 musical Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat. It is generally the beginning and the concluding song of the musical, sung by the title character of Joseph.

It has been sung by numerous performers both on stage and on record including Jason Donovan, John Barrowman, Donny Osmond, Andy Gibb, Phillip Schofield, Darren Day, Lee Mead, Connie Talbot and Toy Dolls. Joe Cuddy's version was a number one hit in Ireland in 1974. The song was voted Broadway Song of the Year in 1981 and won an Ivor Novello Award in 1991.[1]

The song was performed by Jason Donovan, Donny Osmond and Lee Mead at the Concert for Diana on 1 July 2007.

It was notably parodied by Irish radio personality Mario Rosenstock in 2005 as "José and his Amazing Technicolor Overcoat", a send-up of then-Chelsea F.C. manager José Mourinho. It was also parodied by a musical duo Amateur Transplants in their first album Fitness to Practice as "Mr Burton"...

From My Friend, Susan, of NC - 08/02/15:

“Life doesn’t end just because you have a tragedy—there’s a new mountain to climb. Don’t spend a lot of time sulking over what you’ve lost. Get on with climbing the next mountain.”

- L. Tom Perry
(05 Aug 1922 - 30 May 2015)

    Thanks so much, Susan!

        From My Husband, Paul Harty (Bardolph HS, IL - '61) of NC - 08/02/15 - "Beautifully painted staircases":

The Beauty Of Painted Stairs Around The World

Abandoning the flat canvas of buildings, some street artists take to the stairs, transforming them into magnificent works of urban art. It doesn’t matter whether it’s with paint, plants, mosaics or wallpapers – the end goal is beauty, shared and enjoyed by all. This phenomenon is not a localized one and is happening all around the world. These are 20 of the world’s most stunning stairs.

   WOWZERS! Thank you, Dools!

       From My Daughter, Adrienne Harty (Hillsboro HS, IL / American School, IL) of NC - 08/02/15:

     EXACTLY! Thank you so much, Adrienne! Precious memories!  

      From My Cousin, Jean Atkinson Mallory (Warsaw HS / Rappahannock HS / John Marshall HS - '65) of VA - 08/02/15:

   SO TRUE! Thanks, Jean!

From My Friend, Dwayne, of NC - 08/02/15:

    AMEN! Thank you, Dwayne!

“The very essence of literature is the war between emotion and intellect, between life and death. When literature becomes too intellectual - when it begins to ignore the passions, the emotions - it becomes sterile, silly, and actually without substance.

- Isaac Bashevis Singer
21 Nov 1902 - 24 July 1991)

“Is there anything wrong?” asked bartender of the young, well-dressed customer who sat staring grimly into his drink.

“Two months ago my grandfather died and left me one-hundred thousand dollars,” said the man.

“That doesn’t sound like anything to be upset about,” said the bartender. “It should happen to me.”

“Yeah,” said the sour young man, “but last month an uncle on my father’s side passed away. He left me ninety-five thousand dollars.”

“So why are you sitting here looking so unhappy?” asked the bartender.

“This month – so far – not a cent.”

Any Dream Will Do

Written by Andrew Lloyd Webber (b. 22 Mar 1948) and Tim Rice (b. 10 Nov 1944)
Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat, 1968


I closed my eyes, drew back the curtain
To see for certain what I thought I knew
Far far away, someone was weeping
But the world was sleeping
Any dream will do

Joseph & Children

I wore my coat, with golden lining
Bright colours shining, wonderful and new
And in the east, the dawn was breaking
And the world was waking
Any dream will do


A crash of drums, a flash of light
My golden coat flew out of sight
The colours faded into darkness
I was left alone

Joseph & Children

May I return to the beginning
The light is dimming, and the dream is too
The world and I, we are still waiting
Still hesitating
Any dream will do

A crash of drums, a flash of light
My golden coat flew out of sight
The colours faded into darkness
I was left alone

Joseph & Children

May I return to the beginning
The light is dimming, and the dream is too
The world and I, we are still waiting
Still hesitating
Any dream will do
