Day of Possibility in English
The human imagination is, I believe, limitless in all aspects. There’s no telling where it can take us. But it seems, at least in the North/Western cultures, that we are not asked to use it. On the contrary, it would seem we’re being trained to use it as little as possible. And if one thinks about it – what is of better use to The People And Corporations In Charge than operating in a society that can’t imagine it being any other way?
This is a site dedicted to
What I want to do here to focus on the possible, on the imaginative, curious mind. What are the conditions for it? How can we make use of it, both in our personal life and in our community and the world as a whole? How can we learn to think more visionary? What are the questions and quests we can use to lure the mind to go to places outside of its the familiar borders? And what are the dreams that grow in the areas of the mind where we never go because they’re guarded by the monsters of It won’t happen anyway and I’m not … enough. And what about those areas that we can’t even see because we’re blinded by The Familiar?
The key assumption here is that cynicism, resignation and resentment won’t help make the world a better place. And if we want to make the world a better place we have to first be able to imagine it.
Möjlighetsdagen means Day of Possibility in Swedish. I want every day to be a Day of Possibility. An inspiration for this site was The International Day of Possibility, celebrated on June 21st and founded by Kate Swoboda. (There used to be a site at www.dayofpossibility.com.)
My name is Camilla Lekebjer. I’m the founder and maintainer of this site. I was born in 1980 and I live in the south of Sweden. Among the things that take up my time and fill my heart are writing, illustrating and riding my bike. I look at this site as a draft, an experiment and a place to start. I have no idea where it will go – and I don’t need to.
