Call Of The World
Today, I have discovered a window of opportunity... its passage may not be easy, but probable upon dedication spirit and mind. I have shared my case of wanderlust (in previous blog entries), and have decided I think I'd like to satisfy that wanderlust within me, through international volunteer work.
In volunteering, I want to plant a seed of imagination in the places where imagination has been lost to war and poverty. To make a home in hearts, for childlike wonder, creativity, and play.
I want to preserve and celebrate the colors of human spirit and global culture, so they may outlast the generations.
I want to go and fuel the dreams of those without means. To see their dreams blaze brighter and higher than the sun and moon.
I wish, so passionately, to spark the imagination of those burdened with hopelessness.
For I don't want to see any nation, any people, lost in darkness. Time continues unfolding in front of me, I must take the time I've been given, and not dwell in the dark.
Because after every dark period, and storm of darkness, there is a bright and brilliant light...
... that is waiting to be lit.
