Imagination Is Great

To imagine is good. To believe in the imagination that can take you anywhere else in the universe has to be good. Reading novels, comic books and watching movies are all part of imagination that makes us all ... human, right?

I just completed watching "Finding Neverland" -- it was inspirational film. It tells us that it is good ... no ... wonderful for us to imagine things, even if it seems to be out of ordinary with reality.

When I see Sir James Matthew Barrie watching four boys jumping on their beds, I immediately understood. Why did the boys jump on the beds? Because they wished they could fly. Suddenly, the slow motion of the scene showed the boys slowly flying out of their bedroom. The slow motion of the boys started to fly off their beds made me have goosebumps all over the body.

The film is about the author of Peter Pan, Sir James Matthew Barrie who was inspired by a family of four boys with no father and a dying mother and eventually wrote the play that is immortalized today with millions of people loving Peter Pan. Peter was named after Peter Llewelyn Davies, one of four fatherless boys.

It was moving, inspirational and triumphant film for anyone who loves to dream.

I dream to conquer the universe and remake it in my image. That is good imagination, is it?
