Mixed Confections from the Imagination
Yes, I’m a citizen of this nation. I fly its flag daily and proudly, making sure to see that the balance is just right: the “imaginary” should never constitute less than 51% in relation to the supposedly “real”. I therefore weave in images, which then bloom into words and other potentially reflective surfaces. The original images are spawned by my emotions and reactions as well as by thoughts and actions. This symbiosis is a life force that animates my foundational, biological being. A creative quintessence in the quantum quilt of optimal potential. I am very blessed and grateful for not only being a citizen but also for being consciously aware of it. Or… perhaps I’m just imagining things?
