This one is obvious and maybe sort of cheesy, but this weekend I saw a group of kids singing this “Walking On Sunshine” at a museum. I was immediately brought back to the halcyon days of my youth when the simple pleasures of the world, like dancing with my hairbrush and looking in the mirror, were the kinds of things that made me immensely happy.

In this quote from Sam Levonson, he says: “One of the virtues of being very young is that you don’t let the facts get in the way of your imagination.”  Maybe the sunshine isn’t real, maybe the microphone is made out of plastic, but if you use your imagination enough, you can make that feeling of purity project out of you–and subsequently make the world a better place.
