When I sit and ponder, on any subject, my imagination always seems to gain a foothold in the process.
With very little effort, I find myself (in my minds eye) anywhere, anytime, doing just about anything. Of course the creative process of my brain is coming alive and I become (quite literally) “lost” within my imaginary world.
Imagination is a human thing (well as far as we know anyway), none of the wildlife, domesticated animals, plants or other entities have shared with me whether or not they imagine things.
Although it would be cool to think of a flower with an imagination, or an insect or animal, and as you can see my imagination has entered the words I am writing to you right now.
I’ve been asked where my inspiration comes from when I’m writing. The first two paragraphs really do sum it up!
I simply cannot view anything without imagining what might be. It’s why, to me, there is always potential for everything and everyone.

Today is a good day for you to use your imagination. Be creative. Pick up a camera, sketch something, cook creatively. Sing a song, write some lyrics, or a poem.
Think creative thoughts you don’t normal allow yourself to think. Explore your imagination! And, for all of you writers out there, let go, imagine what you want to say. Let’s get that book going!
Your imagination needs no reigning in. Follow where it leads. You will be very pleased with the destination, I think!
Make this an especially creative weekend. Your muse will thank you,

My muse doesn’t like that I’ve been neglecting her. But – I hope she understands why…

I’m guessing you have a very understanding muse, but I know she’ll be happy when your time and energy frees up a little for her to stretch her wings, RoSy! 🙂 xo
My muse has been nudging me for some time so I think it is time to stop ignoring her. What do you think?
I think your muse is very wise, LuAnn and you shouldn’t ignore her! She’s probably being stewing for awhile now wondering when you were going to get off your … 🙂 xo

…… a special place: where you find your imagination!
“Imagine there’s no heaven, it’s easy if you try …” Sorry got carried away. Actually John’s song is beautiful and moving and with an important message too, but I cannot ever imagine no heaven.
At night, Horty when I look up at the sky and see the Universe’s beautiful face stretching to eternity, I imagine it to be totally inconceivable that there would be no heaven! Totally!!!! 🙂
You are so right — Imagination is the gateway to understanding oneself !
Yes, as always, I agree with you oh kindred soul. It can also take us to the most amazing places – when free to do so! 🙂
Thank you, Penny.
I always feel blessed to share comments with you. 🙂

Yea 🙂 Penny. My imagination always get a foothold in my mind.

Thank you Trini, I’m glad to hear you love your imagination because I know it loves you back! And as you say so rightly – much more beautiful there, than out in the world at times! 🙂
