Chapter 6 - Imagination

 

I imagine we have all used the combination of our synthetic and Creative Imagination in the past without being aware of how it worked.

 

Many years ago, my husband and I were general contractors.  We built residential homes & a couple for ourselves.  During the building of a home for ourselves, I saw the wasted plywood out in the yard.  One morning as I awakened, I thought about that plywood and saw, in my mind a darling play table with the seats being toy holders, like a bench.  I saw the benches fitting into the table which had solid sides just like the table and realized it was a cube.  I imagined that cube was a block and wanted to paint it with each side having a letter and being a different color.  It was really bright and cute.

 

After getting the ok to use the plywood, I cut the wood and put the table part in place.  It had 3 solid sides: the top and the 2 sides.  In the middle was a supporting solid pice under the table.  Next the benches had solid sides and the lower half was a box with a top on it for the seat.  The seat was hinged to open and be storage for toys. 

 

Painting was a challenge as I wanted a brilliant set of colors.  After some tutoring at the paint store and a couple days to dry each side, it was done. That was a beloved piece of furniture for many years for our 5 boys.  All from a picture in my mind when I was waking up.

Now with Chapter 6 on Imagination, I can see what was really happening and apply it to my vision for my business.

 

Thanks for being there for us Michael and Linda and for all who participate.
