Day 273, September 30

There is only one
admirable form of the imagination: the imagination that is so intense that
it creates a new reality, that it makes things
happen.~Sean O'Faolain
I love this quote. Perhaps because I love what imagination can create. Have you ever noticed how children can live in their imaginations? They make up a world with little more than dreams and thoughts and what those conjure up between them. How remarkable ... and how sad that we frequently lose that ability as we grow older.
Imagination is precious. Like all precious things, it must be nutured. It must be given time and energy for it to flourish, to grow, to bring forth fruit. So how do we nuture our imaginations? How can we cherish them? Do you spend time day-dreaming? I hope so. Are you willing to color outside the lines? Are you willing to try new things? Are you willing to fail? I hope for all of these things. For myself. For my children and grandchildren. For my friends. For you.
So, for today, I am grateful for imagination.

  1. How dull and colorless life would be without imagination. It would be like Narnia when it was "always winter, never Christmas".
