Cups, Anna Kendrick
I’ve got my ticket for the long way ‘round
Two bottle whiskey for the way
And I sure would like some sweet company
And I’m leaving tomorrow; what d’you say?

Every once in a while — often when we least expect it — we encounter someone more courageous, someone who choose to strive for that which (to us) seemed unrealistically unattainable, even elusive. And we marvel. We swoon. We gape. Often , we are in awe. I think we look at these people as lucky, when in fact, luck has nothing to do with it. It is really about the strength of their imagination; it is about how they constructed the possibilities for their Life. In short, unlike me, they didn’t determine what was impossible before it was even possible.
