Imagination is – sometimes in alternation, and sometimes all at once – a pair of wings, a parachute, and a soft place to land. It is a deep bowl of the tastiest chocolates, the place from which creative beauty is born, a liminal space within which we can breathe into infinite possibility. The act of giving ourselves over to the imagination is one that seems to be dwindling in this high-speed information age… but there will always be those who set aside time for dreaming, and theirs will always be the stories I’m most curious to hear.
