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.”

    Thanks so much, Susan!

From Joan Lauterbach Krause ('60) of VA - 08/03/17:
  Thank you, Joan!

 From My Cousin, Jim Atkinson (John Randolph Tucker HS - '77) of AZ, Sonoran Pronghorn Recovery Coordinator at U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service - 08/03/17:

  GIGGLES! Thanks, Cousin Jim!

 From My Niece, Shari, of VA - 08/01/18 - "Awe-Inspiring Update & A Nice Message for Us All":

Some of you may recall I sent out a time to the t.v. show she was going to be on, some time back. For some reason I found myself thinking about that and how Jennifer Hiles was and found this......... - Jennifer Hiles - an update.

She is looking sooo good. What an inspiration to all of of us, her ongoing plight and thriving despite it, should be!
If you will take a short time to watch this, you can not help but realize to not sweat the little things and if by chance you are going through health trials to realize you are not alone.

What a champ!! Unless you know her story it is not telling initially to see the all the signs, outwardly, of all she has been through. She is more revealing, in this video. I find her fortitude and happy demeanor to be a faith builder. She is a true testament of the strength of the human spirit.

She shares a nice message with others, a bit closer to the end. It is both encouraging and true.

   Thank you so much, Shari!

  From Mary Massey Lyle ('61) of PA - 08/02/17:
  EXACTLY! Thank you, Mary!  

“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.

you have more than one crochet hook in your purse, but you don't have any working writing tools.

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
