“Dreams of the Great Old Ones.”

Twelve more weeks remain until the Exposition opens its portals through time, space, and the fabric of reality, powered by the gathering of creative minds and endless imagination . . .


      We are the music makers,
          And we are the dreamers of dreams,
      Wandering by lone sea-breakers,
          And sitting by desolate streams; —
      World-losers and world-forsakers,
          On whom the pale moon gleams:
      Yet we are the movers and shakers
          Of the world for ever, it seems.

“Ode” by Arthur O’Shaughnessy.
