I’ve been thinking about imagination and the role it’s played in my life. MAJOR! To say the least. I was definitely very shy as a child. While growing up I was more comfortable living in my pretend   world using my imagination. I’m guessing this is probably true for many of    us. But once grown up I believe the process of imagination is still constantly at work assisting us with being creative every day.

Two of my all time heroes on this planet are Walt Disney and Albert Einstein. Each had very strong feelings about imagination. Albert Einstein wrote “Imagination is everything, it is a preview of life’s coming attractions”. Walt Disney wrote “imagination has no age and dreams are forever.” These two amazing gentlemen sum up my own feelings. When it comes to imagination, the more the better. Specially in today’s highly  technological environment (I must note that most probably the highly technological developments have come about as a result of both high creativity and imagination) however for the users of said technology the constant change and complexity of new interactive ways of communicating can be overwhelming. The need for exploring our own imagination was never greater than it is today.

Imagination happens suddenly in our minds. Where we go with it…well that’s up to each of us. I’d love to hear from you and have you share your thoughts on imagination.

  1. love your two iconic references, Mr.Disney and Mr.Einstein. I think you were a very methodical kid while you were growing up 🙂 its just my hunch, my very reliable
    Imagination is a lot of fun. I think fun imagination becomes great imagination if its starts developing into details, logistics, & plans 🙂

    • Yes, correct indeed. I also read a ton. Both of them, each a genious in their own field repeatedly referred to imagination as a guiding force for them. Yes I’ve researched and studied them a whole bunch! Did you see the video of me on todays post, just curious?

      • no I haven’t seen the video yet, and I will eventually make it over there tonight 🙂 Got few more business items to take care of, and it will be free roaming in the blog realm!

          • Christina is so awesome, you really did raise an amazing daughter! I pray she will eventually settle down again, with somebody just as cool and amazing as she is. I thoroughly enjoy every conversation with her 🙂
            I did see your video!! You sound just the way you look & write 🙂 I tihnk you are very very cool, too! and so high tech 🙂

  2. When I was growing up, I was severely bullied at school and out of school, so I used to keep myself in my own imagination. It was the only place I was “really happy”. I don’t know if it was my aspergic tendencies that caused it, but since then, I have trouble “stepping out” of my imagination sometimes and I still have things go around inside my head. Some of which I would love to be able to put onto paper if only I had the wherewithal

Thank you for your thoughts!
