Use your imagination for this insidewink letter from the editors
We are taking off this month… so, before we go, we leave you some thoughts about imagination. The power of what we can imagine is a possibility that is always available to us. Here are some thoughts we’d like to share:
Imagination is the beginning of creation. You imagine what you desire, you will what you imagine, and at last, you create what you will.
Without leaps of imagination, or dreaming, we lose the excitement of possibilities. Dreaming, after all, is a form of planning.
Hate is a lack of imagination.
Let’s keep our imagination alive, our hope burning and our compassion active. We imagine a blessed August for you all…
