Open the Wings of your Imagination

don't devalue imagination

Albert Einstein, one of the most brilliant scientists of the last century, valued imagination over knowledge.

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.
