A not very timely note

This was a blog I once wrote during my high school and early college years. I keep it around for nostalgic purposes, but it is quite obviously no longer updated. I am looking to make a more professional blog presence in the future, but I still like to look at where I was mentally at certain points in time.

"Imagination" by G.


Hey I got this random inspiration so I'm logging on here from my "vacation spot" to write a post. Cheers :)

Imagination. What an amazing power. People can come up with spectacular ideas about the world in which they live. Yet... Imagination is extremely fragile. Distractions can break it rather easily. We can only think so much before we get burned out. But you know what? It never truly leaves you. The spark. A spark that all humans share. That defines who we are. It truly is a pity that many of us don't embrace the spark of our Imaginations and use it to it's full potential . Its also a pity that many of us won't get the chance to use the spark, in a world torn by wars and famine, and a struggle for survival. I realize how incredibly lucky I am to be able to speak my mind here in relative peace. Imagination fuels the minds of people everywhere. It fuels the many great blogs that dare to dig a little deeper. And most of all, it is the mark of children, who dream about many things. Never lose your Imagination. It is one of the very few things in this world that is yours and yours alone. It is what sets you apart from the people around you. Dream, and then dare to bring those dreams to life. Speak your opinion. Think. And be happy. The only thing you know for sure is that you are living this one life, right now. Don't waste it. And don't let your spark fade away.

Great post.

BTW, Disney used to call its designers of Disneyland Imagineers, as he recognized the importance of the spark you wrote about.

What you say is so true. Sometimes I wonder, though, if the children of today are being allowed to express their imaginations. Without the spark, you cannot create!

Very true. A human being, I think needs a creative vent, even if it's only his/her fantasies.
