as well from as having the perspective of imagination -

inhabited by futurists and science-fiction writers.

AN INSPIRED LIFE: I HAVE A CHOICE
My key to living an inspired life involves
Embracing my history,
Understanding the function of expectations
and gently learning to have none;
Recognizing the power of attentive and conscious choices.
In all circumstances I acknowledge this,

and markets and roadways and others,
I do control myself and my response
to all those circumstances. I do indeed.
