The opener for my Field Trip experience last weekend was Dallas Clayton. He was introduced to us as the "Dr. Seuss of our time." I thought "those are PRETTY BIG SHOES to fill!" And let me-assure you, Dallas was BURSTING out of those shoes by then end of this presentation. We laughed, we cried, we nodded our heads in a triumphant YES! It was the perfect start to have this person, this Dr. Seuss vibe, kick start a weekend of passion and creativity. The energy was MAGIC. His words were like a beautiful song to our ears. I left the tent feeling "if that is ALL that happens to me this weekend ... that IS enough." It was that good.
Dallas really knows how to rally a group. I can tell you we were glued to him so I can ONLY IMAGINE him speaking to a group of children and how eager and glowing their minds become. As I listened to him I thought "yes! This is it DREAM! Don't forget to let your KIDS dream!" It was and continues to be, empowering.
You can listen to his book here ...
That was Dallas Clayton speaking in the video above. Hearing him speak it live, from memory was magnificent. He walked the room, he looked into our eyes and right in front of me I saw tens of thousands of dreams launch and feel OK to dream and OK to set aside "big people" issues in such a "grown up" world. Dallas spoke of children's dreams being so outrageous and over time how those dreams fade. It really inspired us to DREAM, dream again and DREAM MORE.
MIND. BLOWN. It really opened up a world of possibility and the most perfect venue for dreaming, learning and being everything you are meant to be. And this was just. the. beginning. BOOM.
