What world will your imagination take you to today?
Imagination will often carry us to worlds that never were, but without it we go nowhere. ― Carl Sagan
Where do you want to go? What world do you want to create?
Once upon a time there was no Neverland and no Peter Pan until J.M. Barrie imagined it. And there was no Winnie The Pooh or Piglet and no Hundred Acre Wood until A.A. Milne imagined it.
Once upon a time, sailors navigated their ships by the stars until Isaac Newton imagined a way to measure the angle between two visible objects and the sextant was invented.
Once upon a time there were was no internet, no desktop computer, no telephone, no television, no prozac, no car, no wheel, and no fire. Someone used their imagination and created a new world.
Did you leave your imagination in grade school?
When you left kindergarten did you leave your imagination behind in your desk when your graduated and went to first grade. Or did you leave your imagination in your locker when you graduated from high school and became an adult.
Do you think that if you image something you become childish? And if you are childish you are not serious? Do you think all adults have to be serious to be taken seriously?
You can be silly and still be an adult. You can use your imagination.
Your imagination can take you to new worlds. Or you can go nowhere. [ tweet tweet ]
With your imagination you can create new machines, find new planets, or have toys that come alive at midnight for the month of December.
What world will your imagination take you to today? Please tell me in the comments. I would love to know where you went.
