Growing up there was some huge imagination ranging from building Lego models and competitions, sometimes designing a new model, a new computer or another area. All forms of imagination, when growing up my grandfather built ball rollers from cardboard boxes. Where you would roll a tennis ball down the side to the bottom. At times even building on the beach for the same result, he had a very creative imagination on his own.
Taking a old disused caravan and turning it into a cubby house, at times working through the early hours to complete a project for my grandmother as he was unable to sleep.
For many years my own imgagination has been struggling. Sometimes with my own imagination i can see a idea and struggle to know how to explain what see. So the question i ask myself is what do you do to be able to express what you can see clearly or am i around those who fail to understand what i am attempting to explain or can see in my own mind. Other times the idea is clear as and can be expressed.
When we imagine relationships are difficult that's what we get. For many years that was the view that had, i found relationships difficult as thats what i imagined and saw relationships as. It has taken alot of work to believe in relationships again. To be able to imagine a better future aswell and start dreaming again.
