Dream sippers are not perfect. Far from it, some times their dreams may take them to dangerous paths. Sometimes their dreams become a nightmare, sometimes they can trick reality and mask what is real and what it is not. And yet, dreamers inspire us. We watch them, cheer for their success, cry when they fall and mourn when they leave.

I thought that given the circumstances it would be appropriate to start the Women that Sip Dreams Series with Etta James. Yesterday I had no idea that Etta James would be the first one in this series, but as I listened one more time to her voice echoing "At Last", I knew that she had to be the one. She says in her melody:

"I found a dream that I could speak to,
A dream that I can call my own
I found a thrill to rest my cheek to
A thrill that I have never known"

Etta James entered this world in an already underprivileged position, as her mother was only 14 years old when she gave birth to Etta. She had many troubles in life, ups and downs, but when you listen to her song, you know that it is reaching not only ears, but many and many hearts. And that is what dreams are for.
