When I find little traces of the world in February 2020 or earlier, it continually reminds me of the dual reality we are experiencing.

It’s funny, sometimes the little details are the ones that resonate the loudest.

It happens for the funniest of reasons… I scroll through the photos on my phone looking for something and as soon as I get earlier than February I see all of the activities that I had taken for granted. Or if I go to look up a charge on my credit card statement and I go back to February and see the charges from the restaurants and remember how common place all of that felt.

As we stay in our cages, looking at each other on a video communication pathway that Illusion Factory pioneered in 2005, I cannot help feeling like some of what the Matrix was projecting is coming true. These reflections remind me of how valuable the smallest things in life were and still are.

I think we are all craving a return to normal, and some are craving it with such intensity, that perhaps they are putting even more people’s lives at risk. When I have that wake up moment and remind myself how much I really value the life that I have been leading, I think it is very healthy to take stock of where things are currently and accelerate the appreciation that I feel for things that I had taken for granted.

It feels very much like dual realities to me which is the essence of why I picked this image and this thought for today. I have every confidence that we will re-emerge and that we are not going to be in this chaos forever.

Let’s hope that society pulls it together so that we can make this happen sooner than later?I hope you have a magical day!

When I was 5 years old, I discovered that the lemon tree in the backyard + dixie cups + water and sugar and I was in business. I have been hooked on that ever since. In 1979, I borrowed $14,000 to create a brand new product... photographic greeting cards with no text on the inside, called Paradise Photography. That was the start of The Illusion Factory. Since then, The Illusion Factory has been entrusted by all of the major studios and broadcasters with the advertising and marketing of over $7 billion in filmed, live, broadcast, gaming, AR, VR and regulated gaming forms of entertainment, generating more than $100 Billion in revenue and 265 awards for creativity and technology for our clients. When I took a break from film school at UCLA to move to Hawaii, my mother did not lecture me. Instead, she took 150 of her favorite aphorisms and in her beautiful calligraphy, wrote them artistically throughout a blank journal. That is the origin of the Lessons from the Mountain series. Since then, on my journeys to the top of a mountain to watch the sunrise, I have spent countless hours contemplating words of wisdom from the sages of all races, genders and political persuasions, constantly accumulating the thoughts to guide me on my life path. I hope you enjoy my books. Please let me know your thoughts, as I highly value your feedback!
