[...intro by TM Maple Leaf...]
Here, on this page, are some of the people you may wish to aspire to be like...
Most of them, possibly like you, have had dreams to reach out by harvesting from within, taking stands by giving the world pieces & places of themselves they thought had long sat dormant enough...
Like many reading this, they had been spawning ideas, sometimes only every now & then, sometimes daily or hourly...sometimes hundreds of them, sometimes only a couple, or even, just perhaps, only one....
The quantity, the frequency, or even the quality aren't all that important....
An idea....ANY IDEA can make greatness occur, it just needs a bit of nourishment after being thought...
What separates acclaim from an idea is work, exposure, & evolution...
....not always in that order....
Below are some great examples of hard work & dedication, dreams & desires, and time, talent & spirit....
Perhaps you have never had a dream that you've made sure wouldn't die, but I doubt it...
Maybe you aren't really striving towards any really important goals right now... & that's fine...
When the time DOES come to revisit those dreams & finally take a few steps closer to drawing the picture you want your life to be...
....to put into place the stories we want to be remembered for...
....to chose the colours we'll be known for painting inside, outside & around the lines with...
Some of the inspirations of which will help you build a foundation for the panelling which will hold YOUR plans may come from these bright, energetic, & creative folks below....
...whose visions in their dreams live on through their [not without sweat] works, floating, absorbable to many, like a breath released to frolic in the wild, & play on as their wind...
...probably also planting the seedlings which will continue the process again...
...the harvester becomes the harvest, & the world reaps the benefits...
Like many known to them, and the uncountable not, we enjoy their works, we thank them for their energy, & we stand VERY PROUD of them!!!...
"We don’t need a list of rights and wrongs, tables of dos and don’ts: we need books, time, and silence. Thou shalt not is soon forgotten, but "Once upon a time..." lasts forever.”

― Philip Pullman
