44 what we don't see
Most people would see a dandelion, a weed that needed to be pulled. If you called it anything else, they would call you crazy!
But an artist or just someone with a creative mind might see a lot of things. Umbrellas for crossing dangerous chasms or a new type of hat that increases intelligence .A torture device used by spies to get at the truth. A new means of collecting water out of the atmosphere for a world that was dying of thirst. Children might even see another world where alien people live, or a fuzzy new pet and new best friend !
But alas, we do not live in such a world. Instead we live in a world where children that can't sit still are given Ritalin instead of dance classes, in order to calm them down and make them more manageable for teachers . We live in a world
where managers and others discourage creativity unless it benefits them . We live in a world where food additives that we cannot even pronounce are put into our food supply . Where freethinking
imaginative people live in fear of being found out. And God forbid someone sees the number 44 and notices that there might be something more to this world than what the government and religious control freaks allow. What a terrible place this world would be if we all had a positive imagination. If we created wonderful things and told wonderful stories.If we lived like knights of old and pledged to do one good deed every day that would help improve the world . Seeing the number 44 is what you make it, so make it something good. It doen't make you crazy, it just makes you aware that the world neededs your help and is trying to get your attention.
There was once a man who had an imagination like no other. He imagined strange worlds that no one could see and only elephants could hear. I wish to thank him for his imagination and thank God he did not grow up in this world of today. Thank you Dr. Seuss,
had you grown up in my time they would have stuck you on Ritalin and called you crazy and quantum physics may never have been invented. The worlds people once called pure fantasy are now considered possible by the leading scientific minds of the world . Amazing what a little imagination can create.
So if I see the number 44 everywhere I go, I at least know I have an imagination!
