“Your imagination is your preview of
life’s coming attractions.”
Albert Einstein

scaredcat

I don’t know about you but I think this quote is kinda scary!   I have a vivid imagination and a very creative one.  My daydreams are of beautiful scenes and delightful happenings, silly and crazy situations, sweet and lovely stories. But I can also go to the dark side where it is frightening and ugly, sad and heartbreaking, mean and dirty.

Happily, most of my imaginings are of the daydream sort and I welcome them as coming attractions. But there are those that occasionally come from the dark side and if they are previews of the future I rather not be a part of them.

What is your imagination like?

Imagination and knowledge…

Imagination is more important than knowledge.”
Albert Einstein

I certainly am not going to disagree with Albert Einstein, I am smarter than that,
but I will add my two cents.

I don’t know if one can exist without the other.
Imagination makes one wonder and that often leads to study and knowledge.
Knowledge can spark the imagination which opens the mind to new things.

There are people with lots of imagination and little knowledge
and there are people with lots of knowledge and little imagination

.How empty life would be if learned people had no flights of fantasy
and creative people never came down to earth.

Proves to me that we need each other to make life interesting,
sometimes challenging and often…a bit crazy.

I=imagination

The A to Z Challenge
letter for today is
i4pI love to use my imagination and daydream.
I have been a daydreamer all my life.
I see nothing wrong with it
But I seem to be in the minority these days.

These days no one wants a child to be bored.
When I was a kid it was ok to be bored.
It happened a lot.
Adults didn’t think it important or even necessary to entertain us.
We were expected to find things to do.
We had to use our imaginations
We could color or draw, read or write, do puzzles of one sort or another.
play games, make up stories or just be still.
Sometimes just being still was the best!

I remember laying in the grass watching clouds finding pictures in them.
Or being fascinated by ants going about their business.
Once I watched a mother bird encouraging her baby to try its wings,
I loved to watch the chipmunks play running up and down the drainpipes.
It was great fun to watch squirrels fill their cheeks with acorns and dig holes to bury them.
Then they would dig them up and bury them a foot away.
All of these little diversions led to mind meanderings and wonderings.
Somehow, the day wasn’t boring anymore it was filled with possibilities.

Now, kids seem to need to have someone or something to entertain them.
I think that’s kind of sad.
Who will be the visionaries of tomorrow if there is no one
imagining and daydreaming today?

And today I
Celebrate The Small Things;
like mind meanderings and wonderings, imagining and daydreaming.
If I didn’t have times that are “wasted” doing nothing I am pretty sure
my occasional ditziness would become full-time insanity.
