So for my birthday, and Amanda and my anniversary, we took a trip to Universal Studious so that I could go to the Wizarding World of Harry Potter!!
It was truly everything I had hoped it would be.
I got a Wand.
I wore a house robe.
I drank a Butterbeer.
I rode a certain train.
I even saw my favorite castle.
It was amazing, but honestly more than just a bit of fun and some wish fulfillment it really cemented something in me. As artist all we have are ideas. This can create moments of great doubt. I have said before that I agree with some of my favorite authors, ideas are cheap. It is the artist that is important, but the idea is a great thing if we pursue it.
Being at Universal Studios and at the Disney Springs board walk. I saw the art of these people's ideas. Buildings made from them. People dressed as them. Merchandise by the ton. All of this, every fantastical thing, started with an idea.
So I created a new mantra for myself. Here it is:
An idea, with a bit of luck, executed to perfection, makes dreams come true.
I will probably post more pics from the trip in the next few blogs. There was just so much to see and do.
I hope everyone is doing well. Thanks for listening, see you next time.
