Breathing Life Into Your Dreams

Aaron McHugh

“These toys are REAL. They are alive!”
John Lasseter, Co-Founder and Visionary of Pixar Animation Studios

I believe that dreams impregnate reality. I love living inside the dreams that other’s have dreamed. Walking through Cars Land in California Adventure, I thought of John’s dream. I imagined what it must be like for him to stand aside from the Cozy Cone, Luigi’s Tire Shop, and Flo’s V8 Cafe. He and his team conceptualized this forgotten Route 66 town and its characters from pencil sketches and quirky personalities borrowed no doubt from their family reunions. Imagination infused with flesh.

I believe that John breathed his life into the life of Cars Land. Cars Land might look like an amusement park, but I believe it is story-soaked proof that dreams become reality.

What dreams are you dreaming?
What are the seemingly silly thing you day dreaming about?
What would happen if you put texture and color and expression to your dream?
What if you dared to believe your dreams are real and they are alive?
