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.
