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

Logic is important and even indispensable, but imagination is what gives life its brightest colors.  Often we equate imagination with fantasy and escapism, although its most common and useful purpose is to add flair to everyday life.  Think of your happiest moments, and you’ll likely find that imagination plays a role in that joy.  Anticipation, memory, humor, enjoyment, creativity and understanding all require at least a little imagination.  Today, I hope we can allow our imagination to transform our attitudes and enliven our activities.

These links to related posts, and their thumbnail photos, do not appear in the blog feed; they are only visible when viewing the individual posts by clicking on each one. I have no idea why, nor do I know how they choose the related posts. That’s just the way WordPress does things.
