What Warning Label Should Be Attached To Me?
WARNING: Subject to Flights of Fancy.
My imagination and willingness to believe in EVERYTHING has delighted me, baffled certain friends and family and created a wedge between me and a few people. At this point in my life, I am totally OK with all the above.
I disagree with the statement: “Seeing is believing.”
My motto is: “Believing is Seeing.”
Fairies, Santa Claus, angels, time travel, paranormal abilities, destiny/divine order versus coincidences. The whole nine yards. Basically, I believe there is a little bit of truth in everything that has been said, printed, painted, filmed and imagined. Why am I such a gullible girl? I don’t see it as gullibility. I see it as POSSIBILITIES.
When I open my mind to Possibilities, well, everything becomes…possible.
When some people see endless problems, I see endless solutions.
War is waging somewhere? Let’s lock hands, find peace inside and pray for peace outside.
You lost your job? What an opportunity to follow your heart and open that coffee house you have always dreamed of owning.
Your house is haunted? Invite me to dinner after you find you a good exorcist.
You saw a leprechaun in your backyard? Please introduce us!
You talk to your dead grandpa? Ask him to send my love to my dad and sister.
Now, I do need to differentiate between facts and fancy. Facts are scientifically proven. I believe in science. On the other hand, I think Science is Magic Explained. Because what humans have thought for thousands of years was Magic, now can be explained by Science. But there are still gaps in our scientific understanding. And I like to think of those gaps as unexplained magic or possibilities.
All of this may seem a bit “WOO WOO” to some of you. That’s OK, because in MY world, as a storyteller and writer, my job is to imagine and tell and write what I believe. Yes, I was trained in Journalism School to find and write the facts. That is a sacred profession I respect and trust to this day. I lived that life of integrity and honesty and protecting a free press.
Because of that training and commitment to Truth, Justice and the American Way, my feet are firmly on the ground long enough each day so that my Soul can Soar. Fancy and Free.
And Imagine the Possibilities.
