At the theatre today for the matinee of Dead Man’s Shoes. The house was packed, the audience loved it, which is always a nice thing. The best part, though, was that after the show an audience member came up to me and said “This was SO good! I love it when you do shows that make us use our imagination!”
What a great compliment! It’s always nice to hear that someone enjoys being there, and that they enjoy it for the same reasons we do! That did get me thinking, though, about imagination….
Imagination is the voice of daring. If there is anything Godlike about God it is that. He dared to imagine everything.
A rock pile ceases to be a rock pile the moment a single man contemplates it, bearing within him the image of a cathedral.
Antoine de Saint-Exupery
Trust that little voice in your head that says ‘Wouldn’t it be interesting if…’; And then do it.
There is only one admirable form of the imagination: the imagination that is so intense that it creates a new reality, that it makes things happen.
Think left and think right and think low and think high. Oh, the thinks you can think up if only you try!
