Fred: The human spirit is always trying to expand itself. It's always trying to express itself. It's always trying to free itself from self-imposed constraints or constraints imposed by others. The song "The Avenue" is about daring to have that imagination, that faith, and that tenacity to know that, not only will things get better, but I'm going to be a part of making them better.
There is the book "Man's Search For Meaning" by Viktor Frankl. He was a psychiatrist in Vienna during The Holocaust who was put in a concentration camp. One of the ways he dealt with it was by letting his imagination go and seeing himself enjoying a great life, seeing himself back as a successful psychiatrist after the war was over.
It gave him the strength and the fortitude to not only get through one of the worst situations humanly possible, but also to develop his life afterward. He credits his imagination and his faith to be two of the strongest components to help him get to the other side of that.
