We all dream, each night as our heads hit the pillow, images and sensations fill our consciousness. Vivid illustrations of past, present and future places dance about as we dream beyond the here and now. We visit far off places, searching for new experiences and forms of expression while trying to understand the world around us. Some dream of themselves and others, some about places, and some of different worlds and better futures for all humankind.
I, as many of you, i'm sure, have recently started to see attack ads about candidates running for office. Like the first cannons of long forgotten battles shattering the peace of nations, as the populace prepares for political war. Harbingers of broken promises and misinformation as candidates vie for the hearts and minds of their constituents.
Pride, many people know this word from many places. Some from a place of fear, holding it as a sin, while others see it as a beacon of hope to a brighter future.
Humanity, the collective will or expression of human unity, has birthed many great works of paper and tempo. It is in art and music that humanity has found its heart and soul. For countless years we have delved within ourselves to understand not only the nature of reality, but of thought itself.
Truth, many equate this to honesty, but truth has a deeper meaning than just the antithesis of a lie. Truths are evident in many things throughout society. We find truth many times per day, no matter who we are and where that truth presents itself. Many of these truths are misunderstood, biased by our own personal experiences or overlooked completely.
