Church of Good Shepards, Lake Tekapo, New Zealand. Special guest appearance by Milky Way.
Everytime she focused upon what her heart desired most, it seemed that all the forces in the Universe moved in unexpected and delightful ways to make it so.
She made it a point to imagine often.
That’s how I felt when I was standing there with Trey Ratcliff, Scott Kublin and Curtis Simmons. I mean, you dream of things in your life… but so often it’s with the quiet after-whisper of “that’ll never happen”. I used to do that. And they never did. I guess maybe now that I’m older and have experienced actual miracles, it occurs to me that my past self simply never dreamt BIG enough. What was up with THAT? I mean, I even have a card I’ve saved for years that says “BIG dreams come true!” Perhaps I didn’t believe it. Or perhaps I just had to stare at it long enough to finally get the courage to go for it and really, truly… with great glee and childlike certainty… IMAGINE myself standing right there, staring up at the Milky Way on the other end of the world with three incredible friends and artists.
Because I did dream it
And it did happened.
And it was really, truly amazing beyond all reckoning.
