Imagine!

‘Imagination’ by Mehdinom

I imagine sometimes that I can slice off the top of my head as easily as I do that of a hard boiled egg. Why, I hear you ask, would you want to do that? and to be fair to you, that is a very good question.

I imagine my brain is like a patchwork quilt, made up of all different little scraps of information, my substitute for material. Over the years, due to use, various little bits of the quilt have become ragged and worn, while others remain intact, hardly touched or used (most likely anything to do with mathematics).

It’s still useful and does it’s job, but I want it to grow. I want it to continue to evolve and become something magical. I want to take out the quilt and wash it, start afresh, be able to rectify my mistakes and grow into something more than I am now.


“Imagination does not become great until human beings, given the courage and the strength, use it to create.” 
― Maria Montessori

I believe I do have imagination (in small doses). My mind is a weird, wonderful and sometimes scary place. My problem is that I lack the courage to send it forth into the world. I still hold back on some of the things I want to say lest I meet with disapproval and disappointment. Like too many things I reign it in, say / write nothing and then end up falling out with myself and the world in general.

So I shall imagine I have the courage to face my fears!

  1. Well well well – go forth and WASH! C’mon, test the waters one toe at a time.You know you wanna!

    Seriously, venturing, even if a bit cautiously, is the only way to grow – and move forwards – and if you don’t try, then lie down already – ‘cos you’d be a stagnant pong of almost dead! No offense of course.

    Truthfully, nothing ventured – nothing gained. And sure, fear of saying or doing something the wrong way, or pissing off people etc etc is part and parcel of it – but this is how we learn, grow, change and develop.There is nothing wrong with adding to the quilt – so, next time you feel like it’s worth what you have to say or do, in your own wonderful and quirky, imaginative way, dunk a toe and try it. You have nothing to lose.

        Actually, blogging is about how you are feeling – and what you’re comfortable with – so fer cryin’ out load woman, give yerself a break!

  2. Dear Jules, sometimes the things I say do meet with disappointment and disapproval. Do you know what I do? I defend my right to say them. That’s all I can do. Learn to fight for yourself, and you’ll get your stuff out there; you could do a lot worse than go down fighting. Just don’t be the loon who says crazy stuff that’s indefensible. My sister is like that, and I can’t stand it.

  3. Never hold back imagination – it only gets better when you give it freedom! I discovered that having people read all the effects of my imagination makes it work harder. With which I’m just repeating that great quote of course ;).

    • Glad you had a nice holiday. Sounds like it was fun!
      There was nothing special about the post, it was all about the reblog, however I need no longer imagine what it would be like to be blog famous, even if it was just for one day. I think I’m happy just being me, cos I get to meet eejits like you :)
