Note: As a lead in to Valentine's Day I will be posting some ways that convey I love you that do not rely on purchasing gifts and am inviting you to do the same where you blog. If you make a post could you link it to this post? At the end of two weeks I am curious as to what interconnected posts about love we might make collectively.

On this last CrowdSourceLove, I wanted to leave you with something that might extend well beyond Valentine's Day and thought about the necessity to dream, to share those dreams with the ones we love, and to dream together. Many years ago I had the opportunity to read Together--a lovely book-length picture book poem by George Ella Lyon.
The poem reads:
You cut the timber and I'll build the house.You bring the cheese and I'll fetch the mouse.You salt the ice and I'll crank the cream.Let's put our heads together and dream the same dream.I'll drive the truck if you'll fight the fire.I'll plunk the keys if you'll be the choir.I'll find the ball if you'll call the team.Let's put our heads together and dream the same dream.You dig for water and I'll make a pail.I'll paint the boat if you'll set the sail.You catch the fish and I'll catch the stream.Let's put our heads together and dream the same dream.
Putting your heads together to dream the same dream.
A fine way to live and love.
