Marina believes in the power of the imagination and that most all things are possible. As Lewis Carroll reminds us in Through the Looking Glass:

“Alice laughed. `There’s no use trying,’ she said `one ca’n’t believe impossible things.’

`I daresay you haven’t had much practice,’ said the Queen. `When I was your age, I always did it for half-an-hour a day. Why, sometimes I’ve believed as many as six impossible things before breakfast.'”
