“All men dream: but not equally. Those who dream by night in the dusty recesses of their minds wake up in the day to find it was vanity, but the dreamers of the day are dangerous men, for they may act their dreams with open eyes, to make it possible.” T.E. Lawrence
“What if by engaging our imagination and opening our minds we could unlock the door to a world of wonders?” Cirque du Soleil poses this question in its latest travelling show “Kurios: Cabinet of Curiosities.”
So how does this question apply to you and your life?
What is beyond the door of your imagination? What is holding you back from opening it? What are you afraid of seeing – of feeling – of hearing? Could it be – THE TRUTH?
I think it’s time to open our doors!
My father had a great sense of humour.
Here I am at 2 years old hanging on the wall. Judging by my facial expression, it didn’t seem to bother me at all.
Of course, knowing me, my facial expression also contains a hint of “So you think this is funny? Just wait until I get you back!”
I did! But years later of course 🙂
Hmm..like father like son. This is me (many years later) having learned a trick or two from my father.
Meghan is not quite sure about this, but Andrew is enjoying every moment of it.
Oh, and check out those socks in the sandals. 🙂
I didn’t feel well yesterday. Some kind of stomach virus. Picked up some Canada Dry Ginger Ale to get those “burps” going. Really helped. My mother used to give me that when I was a kid. Along with Orange Crush once I felt better 🙂
QUESTION: What did your mother do for you when you had an upset stomach?
I’m 66 years old – I mean young
I’m an Aries – that says a lot
I’ve had 3 “long term” relationships – we still get along
I have two wonderful children – young adults now
I have three younger sisters – all older now
Both my parents have passed away – ALS & Alzheimer’s
I’ve gone through bankruptcy – that really sucked
I’m a Saskatchewan Roughrider fan – I grew up in Regina
I’m a storyteller – a filmmaker, coach, author and educator
I’ve had good days and bad days – and occasionally just daze
I am now living and working in Shanghai – China is an amazing country
Years ago I found myself – then I got stuck in the muck
Now I’m finding myself again – by gazing into the reflective pool
My name is Peter D. Marshall – D is for David
I hope you’ll find inspiration here – or at least a smile
And please leave your comments – and your thoughts
(or I’ll just be talking to myself – and that’s not good)
These are my feet –
and my shadow.
Where does one end –
and the other begin?
John Chick is a Defensive End for the Saskatchewan Roughriders football team and he is one of the hardest players for opposing teams to stop. He is at the top of his game in a very demanding and rough sport.
But John is also a family man and when you watch this short video, you will understand what drives this athlete to be the best he can – his family. 🙂
