Monday Morning Motivator & Some Points to Ponder...

"Logic will get you from A to B. Imagination will take you everywhere.” ~ Albert Einstein

     When I hear the word imagination, I immediately think of the poet/songwriter John Lennon. Sadly, somewhere between adolescence and adulthood, many seem to lose the ability to imagination or as kids, "let's pretend". Imagining my success is not like wishing upon a star. I see me almost daily in situations or events that I want to create in my life. I write/create images in my head based on my current circumstances or the way I would like my circumstances to be.
     Where do you see you next week, next month, next year? Use your imagination daily to create the life you want and desire.

Michael - like you I think in pictures, using my imagination to visualize where I want to see myself through the goals I set (we've talked how we are alike in this!) Picturing it makes it more real and gives me more motivation to reach for the brass ring in business and in life. Gorgeous picture - should be in a coffee table book with the rest of your amazing photos!

It would be sad if we didn't imagine where and what we would like to accomplish in life. Many young people today have everything given to them, feel entitled and wish for nothing but the next game box, telephone or tattato. Nice photo.

Michael, you took my breath away with this photo! Imagination, such a key to keeping the "awe" in life alive.

I wrote this in my blog yesterday about that very thing:

She, like I grew up going to a summer place that speaks to that inner quiet of being with nature, of childhood delights spent outside creating your pleasures through your imagination, of the darkest of nights with stars and clean crisp air all around and the sounds of silence enveloping you. It is so completely rejuvenating and so easily done!

Hi Michael~ Imagination is the key that can unlock any door. You have provided an inspirational reminder to keep our imaginations alive. 

Your misty morning sunrise, or is that a misty sunset? takes me away to another place, that from here, I can only imagine...

Best regards from Seattle,
