Sometimes people deceive themselves with a wishful thinking that the world is other than it is.
They do this in their pursuit of a fantasy.
In doing so they deprive themselves of the joys of this beautiful, wondrous and surprising reality.
We find great joy in our fantasies, they are wonderful playgrounds of the mind and should be enjoyed as such.
They should not be the basis of a denial of the very reality from which we construct the very stuff not only of our dreams but also our achievements.
It is in reality where we may love that which is before us and not that which we hope may be if we wish for it enough.
