"We are what we imagine." - M. Scott Momaday

How we imagine ourselves motivates and tantalizes our existence. We have the power to create ourselves through the intelligent and purposeful use of vivid imagination.

Poet Wislawa Szymborska said, "Whatever else we might think of this world, it is astonishing. There is not an ordinary world or life. No ordinary course of events either. Nothing is usual or normal. Not a single stone and not a single cloud above it. Not a single day and not a single night after it. And are all not a single existence, not anyone's existence in this world."

Notice the natural world.  Feel astonished.  Ask questions and make comparisons.

 Does the peacock imagine itself a plant or does the plant wish to have colors and feathers of a bird?

Search for details.

Squint to see the face in an iris.  Let the laughter exercise your stomach muscles when you find it.

What do poppies enjoy for breakfast?

Let your imagination add colors, songs and scents to your day.
