Dreamer’s Life – I Still Believe
By George Davison
Let me share my belief in enchantment, innovation, and wonder. Believe it or not, it’s all in us. Still there – just waiting to make its grand appearance. When I was young, it felt like the magic was all around us. There was a hidden realm of creativity and a world of possibilities that most people overlooked, intertwined by the delicate threads of chance and circumstance. Yet, I saw it as magic all along.
In my youth, the world was my oyster. Its radiance illuminated the past, the present, and the future. And you know what? You probably experienced it, too, even if you don’t remember.
Here’s what I believe: we all begin our journey with magic. We are born surrounded by boundless possibilities, a realm where imagination and creativity know no bounds. We are born with the innate ability to perceive the world differently, to see beyond the clouds, and let our imagination transport us to extraordinary places.
But somewhere along the way, the magic is often stripped away by those who doubt and lack belief. However, deep within our core, in the depths of our souls, we still hold onto the view of what can be. And do you know why we were told otherwise? Because those who spoke those words were frightened by our ideas, untamed spirit, and youthful exuberance. The magic we possessed made them feel ashamed and saddened by how they abandoned their dreams.
Once you drift away from that magic, it becomes a challenge to regain it. However, we can still experience fleeting moments of its return. We can remember and feel it once again for a few seconds. When people are moved to tears by a movie, it’s because, within that dark theater, they briefly touch the shimmering pool of magic. But as they emerge into the harsh light of logic and reason, it evaporates, leaving them with a sense of melancholy and a puzzling emptiness.
Likewise, when a song evokes a memory, dancing fireflies catch your attention in a burst of light, or when you hear the wind’s distant whistle and wonder where it may be heading, you transcend who you are and where you are. In those instances, you step into the realm of magic.
That is my belief.
As each year passes, we often stray further from the essence that resides within us. We become burdened, carrying both positive and negative weights. Life unfolds, and we face hardships or personal setbacks that cause us to lose our way. It’s all too easy to lose sight of the magic in our world. We don’t even realize it’s slipping away until one day, we feel a sense of loss, uncertain of what it is exactly.
These memories of who I once was and where I once lived hold immense significance. They shape a significant part of who I am today and who I will become as my journey continues. I need that memory of magic if I am ever to recapture that once more.
I am eager to share this with you. I aspire to invent, push the boundaries of my imagination and yours, and, most importantly, make a difference.
Here is my wish for you; let the spark of imagination ignite within you. Embrace the boundless possibilities that surround you. Reclaim the magic that lives within your very being. Let your ideas soar, your wildness flourish, and your brilliance shine brightly. Through the power of your imagination, you can bring forth extraordinary innovations and shape a future brimming with wonder and awe.
Remember, you can create magic in this world. Your imagination knows no limits, and your dreams have the power to shape reality. So, together, let’s embark on a journey of discovery, innovation, and transformation. Let us be the architects of a world where imagination reigns supreme and where the magic of possibility is nurtured and cherished.
Believe in the magic that resides within you. It is the key to unlocking a future filled with wonder and endless potential. So, let your imagination soar, and may you leave an indelible mark on the world, forever reminding others of the magic within us.
