Good Morning Friends & Digital Neighbors! Happy Monday to all the visitors of this little community! I hope you all had a great weekend! I had a pretty good one, definitely in the B+ or higher realm of weekends. Nothing spectacular, just good times with good people. Most times that is all you need for an exceptional time.🌞😊
How about a week of pondering imagination? Its whatness, its impact, its presence in our lives? I tend to think we all start out with a healthy dose of imagination in our childhood and some maintain it and other lose it along the way. Really a pit when that happens, we lose touch with a foundational part of mystery of ourselves. Rediscovering imagination as an adult is a real joy if you lost touch with yours. It can literally open up who new perspectives on life and serve as a catalyst for attitudinal and personal change.
I can't imagine where I would be without my imagination. I often preach about cultivating religious/spiritual imagination to help my connect with the Scriptures. Too many dismiss imagination as falsehood, as unreal, as irrelevant to people striving for facts or "science". they are often poor and boring souls. My imagination has never compromised my appreciation of knowledge, science or trying to get a grasp of the facts of a given experience or story.
Nursery rhymes, children's stories, vintage Walt Disney Stories, comic books all fed my imagination as a child. I still enjoy watching Speed Racer from time to time, Ultraman & Johnny Sokko. Fond memories. I was that child who often got sat up front near the teacher's desk for too much day-dreaming, playing with my pencils as rocket or submarine's. It got better by high school, but imagination never left me, in terms of fantasy or a willingness to accept thinking outside the box.
"Come with me and you'll be
In a world of pure imagination
Take a look and you'll see
Into your imagination
We'll begin with a spin
Traveling in the world of my creation
What we'll see will defy explanation"
Happy Monday Friends!
