Imaginations - Believing in yourself

December 2004

-17 °C

I have just returned from an extraordinary journey, the walk to Macchu Piccu, Peru. As soon I returned to Ireland, I knew I cannot forget the vision of spreading peace through a creative cartoon figure, and I immediately started thinking of making it happen again.

I tapped into the importance of individuals imaginations, and Shiera O' Brien and James Sweetman were the two people who put my own thoughts into perspective, and from that I found away to make it into reality.

Shiera gave me an hour 'interview' if you like, where she wanted me to express my own ambitions and imaginations. I told her from a very young age I wanted to make a difference in the world, making the world a more peaceful and happy place. The thoughts are nice, but she tapped into something when I told her my thoughts of introducing the invisible friend 'Harvey' as curiousity is the key to make something lasting, rather a flash in the pan.

Tom and Shiera

Shiera asked me to visualise the map of the country I want to walk across, it was Australia, and then she asked me to walk it, and feel and think of all the challenges on this journey. I did and physically and mentally I was being tested step by step, the journey was feeling quite real. At the end, I then reached the other coast of this imaginative map, and then Shiera asked me to look back and see the journey that you just experienced. In a moment I then knew how big this test really is, but more importantly, I knew I can do it.

That hour made my imaginative journey as real as my own life, and we continued to talk about the fears of my own where it can go wrong. This was not as important as the visualised walk, as my fears are in myself. I was always afraid of people abusing something good, those who will make money out of something pure. I would rather be broke that become wealthy to tarnish this pure thought. Sponsorship and funding will come along I am sure, but there is nothing that I trust right now, so I would prefer to start as a beginner and create my own T shirts and logos in the future.

I have no idea how far this concept will go, but when it starts I think Ill be doing this for the rest of my life, and it is a wonderful feeling.
