It was a little more than a year ago, when most of us had no idea that Zoom would be a word as common for our daily lives, as toilet paper. But now it is common.
We all use Zoom, and video conferencing for all kinds of things now; from doctor consults, to job interviews, team meetings, and math classes. Little kids, all the way up to great-grandparents, now know that “Zoom,” means having a face to face chat with each other through a video screen.
It wasn’t too long ago, when something like this was purely science fiction. Just a few years ago, the idea of being able to have dozens of people broadcast from all over the world, right into your personal laptop, while you chat with them in your sweats, would either seem like a fantastical joke, or something that only billionaires could access.
But it isn’t fantasy, it’s a reality now. So much so, that we mostly take it for granted, and even get annoyed with the marvel of video conferencing.
I can’t help but wonder then, what else might seem like a far-fetched fantasy right now, that we can manifest for our lives, to be as commonplace as toilet paper.
We live in an amazing universe, and we are all fantastical creators. So, let’s start dreaming, and keep on creating.
