Thursday Love: Imagination




Imagination! who can sing thy force?
Or who describe the swiftness of thy course?
Soaring though air to find the bright abode,
Th'empyreal palace of the thund'ring God,
We on thy pinions can surpass the wind,
And leave the rolling universe behind;
From star to star the mental optics rove,
Measure the skies, and range the realms above.
There in one view we grasp the mighty whole,
Or with new worlds amaze th' unbounded soul.


from On Imagination by Phillis Wheatley

I love imagining and daydreaming of nice and lovely things:) It is still one of the best reliable pastimes and cheap too.

That image is breathtaking. As we move around the wheel it does change our perspective. I haven't been on a ferris wheel in ages. This one picture is bringing back such memories -- I'm remembering more dreams, dreams that were lost. I'm catching them now thanks to you!
