For a brainy, intellectual, Einstein had a lot to say about imaginatio:
" Imagination is every thing. It is the preview of life's coming attractions"
"Imagination is more important than knowledge. knowledge is limited. imagination encirles the world."
Antaole France adds:
"To know is to nothing at all; to imagine is everything."-
As a busy mother of nine children,
I have always been an oral storyteller
Whenever I started to record our hilarious life on paper,
I wrote stilted mummy drivel.
It has been barely a year since I have discovered
a creative fountain of written words buried deep within me.
Suddenly an idea springs up from my inner self,
initiating a flow of words, assimilated emotions, reflections and connections
that seem to take on a life of their own.
This entire process is joyful and life-giving,
like writing with my fingers, not my brain.
