Excerpt from essay by Dick Goody: Paradise exists in the mind’s eye. To begin to imagine, we have to free ourselves for a moment from the frame of our everyday lives and rise above to something better than reality. We have to give ourselves encouragement to daydream. Our goals have to be open to the possibility of discovery. We must believe anything is possible and shed any feelings of absurdity and guilt associated with the monotony of a typical day.
