Everything you can imagine is real.
Imagination is a wonderful thing. It can take you lovely places. It can relax you. It can take you from boredom and inertia to the desire to move and do something you enjoy. It can help you see what needs to be done and how to accomplish it. It can help you make life better not just for yourself but for others, too.
Sadly, I have known people who imagined awful things were going to happen. There are people in my life today who imagine frightening things that could happen. There was a time I was one of those people.
I am happy to say I left the ranks of the doom and gloom army years ago. Oh, there are times that my imagination goes to the ugly, but I recognize the waste of time pursuing those thoughts. Not only is it a waste of time; it is dangerous. It can make you miserable. It can cause depression and even physical ailments. It can bring harm to others.
I don’t know if I agree with Pablo. I guess, like everything in life, imagination sometimes needs to be reined in and put in perspective in order to do the ordinary things of everyday. We just need to remember it’s meant to be a healthy and happy productive time.

I Love that Picasso quote and your interpretation! Another of my favorites is “He can who thinks he can, and he can’t who thinks he can’t. This is an inexorable, indisputable law.”
I like this quote better than the one I wrote about. Seems more true and realistic.
“Imagination is more important than knowledge. Knowledge is limited. Imagination encircles the world.” – Albert Einstein
I am not as smart as Albert, but I think imagination and knowledge need each other. Making one more important than the other could be our undoing.
I totally agree, Patricia!
Great minds…? 😸
I came across this quote recently too. I think imagination is a tool that could be used for good as well as making our lives miserable. I like to keep my imagination under check or it can just fly away with my thoughts.
I think so, too. We need to control our thoughts and emotions. Not imprison them, but keep them from running amok.
We don’t dwell on the negative either, we’d much rather be happy!

picasso s last words
off band on the run
I’m happy to say that I’m a happy person. If one wants to live with doom and gloom then go ahead. I won’t be joining them.
Have a fabulous day, Patricia. ♥
The doom and gloom army should be disbanded and outlawed! Happy is the way to go, all the way.
OOPS. Didn’t mean to LIKE myself. Hit the wrong button.
Dreaming is a great pastime. I do lots of it having an overactive imagination. But we’re writers after all Patricia. It’s where the fruit is.
Dreams are important, and they start the process of imagination. Imagination makes dreams a possibility. It would be a dreary world without active imaginers.
You have such a gift for metaphoric alliteration. Did you know that Madam? 🙂
You’re also very modest.
