Last night, I attended a company’s anniversary party where a band played music from the 80’s. The music brought back wonderful memories of my young adult life. It also reminded me of my daughter’s Golden Doodle, Prince Bowie, featured in this painting and named after two great musicians who performed many great music hits in the 1980’s and died the year her dog was born. Creative people definitely make our world more beautiful.
“”Be still, and know that I am God. I will be exalted among the nations, I will be exalted in the earth!””
Psalms 46:10 ESV
One definition of imagination is the forming of experiences in the mind. One of my favorite ways to relax is to imagine. It turns out this mental activity is very complex and no one explanation of its mechanism will suffice. Two of my favorite movies mention imagination, The Italian Job and Miracle on 34 Street.
Having imagination tends to afford resourcefulness and creativity. (It seems to me our government needs more of those qualities) Strangely enough, sometimes I can actually see with my eyes closed in complete darkness; and, now I understand that the Mind’s eye, developed through imagination, accounts for such phenomena. Can you imagine??
