Most of us inhabit the middle zone.

The challenge is to stretch to the limit of our capacity, to reach deep into the fertile valleys of our imagination, and to voyage to the edges of this earth.

A child's travels begin in the imagination,

down the rabbit hole,

in Mr. McGregor's garden,

under the floorboards,

across a treasure island.

We never forget our first destinations, the stories that have often taken us there

and the frissons of emotion - fear, wonder, surprise, warmth - that subtly color

every place we go thereafter.
