THIS PHOTOGRAPH was snapped by my daughter several months ago at an art gallery event in Vancouver. Filling an entire room with balloons is kinder to the environment than sending them adrift in the air. But the image played in my mind as a metaphor for all the blocked creative potential, wishes and goals bursting to get loose and not yet realized. Keeping dreams afloat isn’t easy but sticking a pin in them surely does not help them soar.
