When I was a child, electronic toys were few and far between. Sure there were things that plugged in and took batteries, lite-brites and cars that rolled around on their own, but we created things in our minds - story lines and places that did not exist. Tapping into the imagination was an everyday occurrence.
Today, so much is created for us that all we do is click or push a button. Yes, it can be convenient and helpful at times, because of the diversity of perspective and the nearly infinite number of new ideas we can tap into, however, as we age, we tend to nurture our own imagination less and less. Take some time to do just that. For me, listening to music stimulates my mind and I can be lost, for 5-10 minutes or longer, in my own mind, where my own imagination is ultimately found.
