I encourage you to watch these short episodes to get an insight on how creation is always born out of something previously discovered, only to be transformed, combined, and eventually improved into what we commonly call… Invention.

This evening, we started reading Runnning from Safety, by Richard Bach. It narrates the encounter of the author with his inner child, and how the invitation of infancy into our grown up lives can help us focus on what truly matters: our dreams.
What a magical rediscovery! I read some of Bach’s books in the past, and was always delighted. How come I paused my private meetings with this author? On the one hand, because I stumbled upon other interesting authors, such as Paulo Coelho. On the other hand, because I cannot read only spiritual novels, I need healthy breaks with philosophy and other fiction, too.
After eight lyrical chapters, the book got me thinking about my own childhood. I am joyous to report that, for the most part, my dreams are alive and well. From a little boy lugging books around and drawing endlessly, I have grown up into a man who reads print and digital media, and designs both for a living. I never stopped travelling, and while we ponder about settling down, the Promised Land remains beyond our cultural borders.
We found the novel while selling Eat Pray Love, in one of those second hand bookshops so familiar to my South-East Asian landscape. Read one, trade one is my motto on the Road – and more and more when I am put as well, no need to hog over things.
The book makes me wonder if there is anything I could improve, and I am eager to read on and find some clues.
