strange albert einstein Strange things about Albert Einstein

"I am enough of an artist to draw freely upon my imagination. Imagination is more important than knowledge. Knowledge is limited. Imagination encircles the world. Albert Einstein (1879 - 1955)

I'm working on my first science fiction manuscript and I gotta say it's going really well :) It's different from what I've written previously but I'm loving it so far. The imagination is a powerful thing and I'm thankful that God graciously gifted me with a doozy very unique one ...Yeah, that's sounds better LOL!!

Without imagination we'd never know about a place called Disney, take a journey to Middle earth (LOTR), That a place called Narnia was on the other side of the wardrobe, space being the final frontier and my favorite "You're traveling through another dimension -- a dimension not only of sight and sound but of mind. A journey into a wondrous land whose boundaries are that of imagination. That's a signpost up ahead: your next stop: the Twilight Zone"  Love Rod Sterling!

I love worldbuilding, creating this imaginary world, people, creatures, personalities, governments, etc.  My favorites were this group that lived in Canyon Marais, ruled by King Bluche. They lived in this swamp like area. When they were first discovered they were thought to be ill because of their pale green skin. However, their appearance was caused by fine scales that covered their bodies, nostrils were flaps of skin, huge hazel pupils, long lush eyelashes and vibrant orange hair. Oh, did I mention they were dragonflies and are Biochemical Warfare Specialists. Not the type of people you'd want to tick off!  But they're my little created babies!!

Inventions start in the imagination...What have you imagined lately?

Proverbs 8:12 "I wisdom dwell with prudence, and find out knowledge of witty inventions."
