Imagination is the ability to perceive or sense something that is not perceived through our five senses. It helps us to provide meaning to our experiences, and understanding to knowledge. It helps us in getting a grip on the world around us, and it also helps us in our learning processes.
Our basic training in imagination is first given to us when our parents read us a book at night as they tried to get us to go to sleep. The words that they read to us maybe painted a picture, made us feel what the characters were feeling, or as we heard what was happening in the story we were able to become part of the story from the book.
The words read to us created worlds, actions, reactions, romance, intrigue, and the list goes on. We imagine today, in our daily lives, in other ways too. We think about the actions that occur each and every day. We try to figure out motivations, meanings, perceptions…Using our imagination, we come up with solutions to problems. So when you hear someone say that they have no imagination, it is not true!
I was drifting off to sleep the other night, into a different realm of imagination, and something told me that I needed to write a post on this topic…
Now for the challenge: Below are a number of photos. Using your imagination name the following photos. I will then update the photos with the name, and if you have a Blog, I will include a link to your site!
I look forward to experiencing your imagination and seeing where it is you will take me!
