Lets Get Conceptual

November 18, 2017

Often I’m lost in my own little mental world – my friends refer to this as “Coreyland.” Sometimes Coreyland is a good place where I can explore new ideas and be creative, but other times it distracts from my immediate life. The image of the boy in the castle is about this idea of being entrenched in your imagination. The other two images address this from the angle of smart-phones and how we’re often unable to enjoy the reality surrounding us because we’re lost in our work or the distractions of social media. Imagination and technology are both good things, but I think we should always seek balance and prioritize our friends and family over our accomplishments. In the words of Thomas S. Monson, “Never let a problem to be solved become more important than a person to be loved.”
