fantasy- actualityfantasy / actuality

a personal fantasy of mine is to ride in a hot air balloon. i couldn’t help but get caught up in just such the fantasy- on window display at the apple store. i got to thinking that the dictionary definition of fantasy (anything that is not real, anything that is not the truth, and anything that is not accessible) is not exactly the opposite of  reality. i could probably come pretty close to realizing my hot air balloon fantasy on an iPad- at my fingertips i could reserve a ride in one or search out a video view from above in one… it is amazing to me the abilities of technology and communication that blur the lines between fantasy and actuality.

volition- serendipity

volition / serendipity

if volition is to enact your will on something- to make your own destiny… then its antonym is something akin to serendipity. this photograph represents serendipity- the phenomenon of finding something that you were not looking for. in this case- on my way out the door at a restaurant- the fish in the tank and i had a moment of seeking each other out without having sought each other out before…
