Happy (Cyber) Monday! Hopefully we’re not so distracted by the promise of a good deal that we neglect, for too long, our jobs or our passions (and for the lucky few among us, those two are one in the same).
I don’t purport to be a Tom Waits fan or aficionado, I can neither recall offhand his songs nor movie roles. All I can claim is to appreciate a good quote when I come across one. When I give this quote too much thought, it makes my simple brain hurt. What I do like about it is the acknowledgment that imagination and reality go hand-in-hand. Often we think of escaping reality through our imagination but without the former there would be no reason to consider an alternative. And, when we’re deeply consumed by possibilities imagined, we have the best opportunity to create new realities.
Best wishes to a well-imagined week!
