Preparing for this post made me tear up – yes I am that bad. Yesterday Callie Cline sent me a LM to her Display at SL5B the Celebrations happening in Phils Place for the 5th Birthday Celebrations of our wonderful world.
You see thats the thing, it is Yours/Ours, they aren’t making it up when they say “Your World Your Imagination”. The funny thing, or perhaps the sad thing, is that this whole time I have been here , I never gave that saying enough credit. I like many I am sure , gave it the usual pfft of corny sales pitch and that was about it.
Don’t get me wrong, I am so not jaded about Phils Place, I celebrate I hope its wonder every single day in my own way. But in as I said , preparing for this post I saw that I myself am lacking considerably in the My World stakes.
Callie Cline though doesn’t, and you can see that ten fold in her Dream Display, its wonderful. It embraces everything she has ever done or set out to do in Phils Place. She has kept a running record of every press clipping every single release she has done , all her memories are there amongst what was in the beginning a dream and has become a reality for her and those she loves.
I envy that, and until today and this display I didn’t know that I did. I have done things in Phils Place I am proud of , some people actually know of most of them , some only know a few, and thats fine. Some things I can’t share that I have had a hand in because ultimately they belong to the people that made them happen, and there are others that have openly expressed that I have, and I am always honored when that happens.
But looking at the Dreams display at Callie Clines exhibit at the SL5B I really again admired her strength and purpose here, what she sets out to do she does, and there is no stopping that determination, its exactly what this celebration is and should be, a showing of what people have achieved in their time here, and what it is that makes being a resident of Phils Place so memorable.
Thank you Callie for showing me that, I hope to embrace it and keep it and go on to do and be a part of incredible things.
I hope that you all go and see this exhibit and I hope that you take from it what I have , the want to go through all your things you have made , gathered and been given in your time here , and sort through your pictures and notecards and maybe come up with your own Dreams Exhibit , if for nothing or no one but yourself â™¥ You deserve it !.
