I’m too old and too pragmatic and too cynical to still think this way.
It’s not as strong as it used to be — doesn’t happen as often, nor as unwaveringly. I see the holes in the thought process more readily, and I don’t fight or deny those holes as blindly.But it’s still there, that part of me… the dreamer.
I still believe in the possibility of comic books and Hollywood endings (and beginnings, and middles). Anything that I can imagine can happen. Anything that anyone can imagine can happen.
Thousands of years ago, was light from a source other than the sun or fire possible? Could you capture images for future viewing? Communicate across distances with a hunk of metal the size of your hand or travel to other planets?
Things man once swore impossible are not.
If reality can destroy the dream, why should not the dream destroy reality?
That’s the beauty of a dream — you don’t ever let it go.
I’m in love with ideas and ideals, with things that no adult believes in, with things that belong on the printed page and in celluloid nights in cinemas.
It can make it rough, being a grown-up while still holding onto childish things,… but it makes it easier, too, getting from one day to the next.
