The World According To Pogi

me1Sometimes I feel that to be an adult is to lose the ability to imagine that what is imagined, can be real.  As adults We erect walls between reality and our imagination. We become “sensible” and forget to keep our mind open to contemplate the improbable and impossible. Opening their mind is what children do so well, as we adults try to balance the playful with the reasonable.

I try to live a life where my imagination is not constantly imprisoned by commonsense.  As a child I dreamed in simplicity,  a large box was a fort where I held off the Indians, Germans, and Japanese; it was a pirateship, battleship, aircraft carrier, airplane and racecar. A small box was a magic hat filled with rabbits,  a treasure chest, Wells-Fargo strong box,  or the engine of that racecar.  A look into the heavens was a trip to the moon in a rocketship.

As adults I think we forget that the computer and Internet technology we use all day, every day, was once two tin cans and a string made by a child.  In this fast-paced, ever-changing world we sometimes to get caught up in things that seem important, but which are actually just blocking our mind and heart from what really is important.  It’s easy to get so caught up in technology that we forget to take time to just dream and imagine.

As a child, it was imagination that gave meaning and purpose to those two cans and string. The same is true when we become adult, imagination can  add meaning and purpose to our life, it can also make the dreams of our youth come to reality.  The only one that can give my life meaning is myself,  to that end I try to live my life on the belief that my capacity to learn,  imagine and dream,  does not decrease as my years increase; that through academic and social adventures of lifelong learning, travel, sharing, and a renewed sense of volunteerism, I can expand my awareness, embrace self-fulfillment, and truly create an exciting meaningful life.

My site is constructed from several individual blogs authored by me. Each blog touches on a different one of my interests. All the blogs are tied to the home blog (this one) via a link in the Right Sidebar under the “About” heading. Each individual blog can be followed via email through a link on the right sidebar. You don’t have to follow all unless you want to.

You can also follow all my blogs, Facebook, and Google-Plus, via twitter connection (@PogiAmericano).
