I was wondering how the Latin form of the following are:

"Living the Dream" and "Living a Dream" I can't seem to find anything anywhere else on the net for this.

Thnaks!

@trevlee11,
In Latin there would be no difference between the two phrases; definite and indefinite articles are not used in Latin. (This often makes it difficult for English speakers when translating from Latin. For example, there's no way to tell whether it should be "He met the Devil" or "He met a devil.")

But, in either case, rough translation of living either 'the' dream or 'a' dream would be vivens somnium.
