Imagination on the other hand CAN be always wonderful, invigorating and it pushes us to places we might not go, to do things we might never consider for adventures we might never explore. It’s more than ‘I think I can’ than ‘what could I do if nobody was looking?’ or better yet, ‘what could I do if I knew I couldn’t fail?’
Imagination makes my heart pound faster, causes me to type faster.
I like exploring other people’s minds – asking questions about what they believe, what they feel and how they see the world. I like asking myself those questions too.
Reality never disconnects, it’s always here – usually a safer comfortable place. My fear, I might one day slip into that comfortable place to stay and hide from my imagination.
Reality is the steak and potatoes of life.
Imagination is the sizzle, the sauce and the dessert.
Exploring that place where reality and imagination meet is like trying to leap into the deep end of the pool with your clothes on, trying not to drown or get your clothes wet – simply impossible to separate one from the other.
My journey is not just a weekend exploration of someone. My journey has many ports of call – and sometimes we travel with someone in life, sometimes not.
Time and experience teach us much more than any initial flourish of excitement and in my experience I’ll be better able to appreciate this day at some point in the future, looking back, than I can properly assess it right now.
