The 02/11/13 Joy Jar

10 Feb

Watching the GRAMMY AWARD SHOW, Carrie Underwood just accepted an award in a classy dress with a reputed $31 million dollar necklace around her neck. There are more sparkles and sequins at the show than the late Liberace could have ever imagined. The nominees at the show are living a fantasy. Fantasy is sometimes good, but it is a place that one can’t live in all the time. Reality has to be a part of existence. Tomorrow, Carrie Underwood will be without the necklace, the jeweler will probably reclaim it after the last after party. Still, a fantasy can be useful. Today’s deposit into the ‘Joy Jar’ is just enough fantasy to spice up reality.


Fantasy is a necessary ingredient in living, it’s a way of looking at life through the wrong end of a telescope.”
Dr. Seuss


Fantasy is hardly an escape from reality. It’s a way of understanding it.”
Lloyd Alexander


Imagination is everything. It is the preview of life’s coming attractions.”
Albert Einstein


Fantasy, if it’s really convincing, can’t become dated, for the simple reason that it represents a flight into a dimension that lies beyond the reach of time.”
Walt Disney Company


Everybody must have a fantasy.”
Andy Warhol,
The Philosophy of Andy Warhol


Classic fairy tales do not deny the existence of heartache and sorrow, but they do deny universal defeat.”
Greenhaven Press


Lovers and madmen have such seething brains
Such shaping fantasies, that apprehend
More than cool reason ever comprehends.”
William Shakespeare, A Midsummer Night’s Dream


The moment you doubt whether you can fly, you cease for ever to be able to do it.”
J.M. Barrie, Peter Pan
