“Imagination has brought mankind through the Dark Ages to its present state of civilization. Imagination led Columbus to discover America. Imagination led Franklin to discover electricity. Imagination has given us the steam engine, the telephone, the talking-machine and the automobile, for these things had to be dreamed of before they became realities. So I believe that dreams - day dreams, you know, with your eyes wide open and your brain-machinery whizzing - are likely to lead to the betterment of the world. The imaginative child will become the imaginative man or woman most apt to create, to invent, and therefore to foster civilization.”
~ L. Frank Baum
(I found this guy hanging out in Salt Lake City last Saturday after seeing the Distant Worlds: Music From Final Fantasy concert at Abravanal Hall. The music was so good.
No one's inside, it's an art piece of sorts, lining the street with other random figures.
This space man is cool nontheless.
When I was younger I used to imagine what it must be like to float in space, right outside the space station or doing a space walk. The views must be incredible staring down at the Earth. Can you imagine? The silence. How surreal it must be.)
