Kurt Vonnegut

"We are what we pretend to be, so we must be careful about what we pretend to be."

American Novelist

1922 - 2007

Who do you pretend to be?  Have you stopped pretending?  Every artist, writer and actor needs the skill of pretending.  A writer invents worlds that he inhabits through multiple characters.   An actor must climb inside the psyche of the characters he plays.  An artist must inhabit the paintings he creates.  So who do you pretend to be.

When I was young I pretended to by a professional pitcher for the St. Louis Cardinals.  I pretended to be a professional basketball player.  A child loves to pretend.  The three-year-old child that my wife and I are raising loves to pretend to be a dog.  Many of us as we grow older lose the habit of pretending.  We are taught to live in the real world, not the one of imagination.  In fact, day dreaming is frowned on.  Yet, as creative leaders, we must encourage and cultivate our imaginations.  It is with our imaginations that we create new artistic expressions.

Play with your imagination today.  Become someone else.  Pretend to be what you want to be and enjoy it.  Relax, sit back and day dream.
