This is an interesting post, and fits in well with other things which have been on my mind lately, and with things about which I have posted.
It occurs to me that over the years, I really have let the world steal my dreams. I think we all do this – we get so wrapped up in the day-to-day “operations” of life that we lose track of the grand visions. We also tend to be told that we need to think realistically, and be reasonable, and play it safe. We spend much of our lives being taught what is possible, and even worse, what is impossible. I think that is why so much advancement in science, arts, and other fields comes from the young, because they have not yet learned that what they are trying to do is “impossible”.
One of the nice things about a grand vision is that you spend much less time worrying about whether it is possible of not, and more time just working towards it.
