Last night I was mocked for the belief that passion in the mind can be made real in the flesh, and now I must re-examine a truth I have held fast for most of my life.
Can we trust the voice that tells us without words that the intangible can exist – not as a fairy tale or a wish, but in the reality of our lives – if we have the courage to embrace it?
Perhaps this faith has been a wish, embroidered by circumstance and desire but no more a reality than the clop of reindeer hoofbeats heard when some kind father disappears on Christmas eve and walks the roof to enchant his children.
The surety of my knowing – the certainty that grips my gut and makes all before me as infinitely, intimately detailed and clear, as visible as pebbles scattered in the murky water of a pool in some green glade – has been rudely slapped, cross-examined under the harsh light of the wisdom of the world pragmatic.
I know I am a dreamer as surely as I know that there are those who never dream; but dreams do not give rise to the electricity that floods my veins when knowing jolts me from the dream.
