1971….The Beatles

Imagine all the people
Living life in peace
You, you may say I’m a dreamer
But I’m not the only one
I hope someday you will join us
And the world will be as one…..
(one of my all time favorite songs)
Can you ‘imagine’ the times when John Lennon wrote that song?
I can….I was 19 years old and at 66 those lyrics are every bit as relevant.
Peace, love, coming together….one can only imagine!
Well imagine this!  Summer is here.  Finally….sort of….at the moment I can imagine that it’s time to soak up some sun!
The Sun!  The Sun!  You’ve been hiding a bit…
Why?  We need you!  We have had enough of this nonsense.  It’s time to make a permanent appearance.  
We need to see the sun rise, the sun set, the SUNSHINE!  Seriously!
I can’t imagine not seeing the sun.   I can’t imagine not feeling the warmth of the sun.
Imagination is an integral part of life.  It’s  how we create–visual, wearable, performing art.  How we plan, design, teach, write, invent, garden, parent, compose, cook.  Even how we negotiate or communicate.  It’s how we navigate through life.
We are told ‘not’ to imagine the worst, to let our imagination run wild, to ‘use’ our imagination, to fuel our imagination, to capture our imagination, to imagine what ‘could’ happen if….
Remember, it can work for or against us.  So make sure you use your imagination wisely….to uplift and inspire.
Now imagine this…..It’s finally Summer!
It’s time to slow down and imagine the possibilities…they are endless…. indeed.
Start by taking an art class and put that imagination to test….click on the link below and get started.
And Oh!  That fabulous painting above is straight out of Philip’s imagination!  It’s a lion!  That kid…what an imagination!
