Do you ever have days where you just want to pretend, where your imagination is on overload?
Albert Einstein said that imagination is more important than knowledge and Muhaamed Ali believed without an imagination we are stagnate. Many of the great thinkers, writers, innovators across history understand this, they lived it, and their legacy inspires it!
I think a good balance is key however intuition and inspiration is often overlooked. In order to create in order to innovate we have to have a sweaty imagination.
In today’s vending machine world, and over the indefinite continued progress of existence, the imagination has been cheapened. I recently found the filter part of instagram, it’s well interesting. I played with it for an hour or so, tried just about every filter they have. My take away is not anything profound, I simply find it a waste of time as many do. I still just can’t figure out it’s purpose, how did it make me feel, what is its attraction.
Then as I was scrolling through my phones daily photo pics from my camera role I came across this doozy. Halloween 2017, I was if you haven’t figured it out, Jareth from Labyrinth. This was one of my favorite movies when I was a kid. I loved fantasies, all of them, still do, hence the imagination overload.
Letting my mind wander to the infinite is an absolute delight.
