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,
