When Imagination Is Worth the Most

When you’re sick on Monday, it feels almost impossible to imagine that, by Sunday, you’ll be well enough to go on a five-hour train ride. Almost. In that “almost” lives the little bit of perceived probability you need to fill your seemingly unlikely vision with color.

Because of course, in reality, it is far from impossible to recover from a cold within a week. You’ve done it plenty of times. In fact, it is a more likely outcome than not improving at all — but right now, your bedridden brain just won’t allow you to see it.

Like many things, imagination is worth the most when it’s hardest to practice. Have faith, and continue to book tickets against the odds.
