And the children…

The sun sets on another day…

Sunset shimmered across the horizon, and I watched darkness fall. As I did I found myself being a little excited for the moments ahead. A podcast was coming, and there would be fun.

Tonight, I was part of another podcast. I have done a considerable number of them because I enjoy talking and I enjoy interacting with authors. Authors are unique individuals and even though a lot of people say anyone can write there is an art to storytelling and an art to sharing part of yourself with another group of people.

Tonight’s event was very good, but I was most impressed with a young lady who was in her early teens or almost teens and read a story that was very suspenseful and enticing. I do have to say that each of the authors had their own appeal and pulled us in to their particular world. I found myself paying close attention and being more than a little silly as I laughed with the authors and they’re unique situations.

In a world full of everything else I was happy to see parents and teachers who were willing to show a little bit of themselves to the younger generation and inspire them to use their imaginations. Far too often imaginations are stifled by all of the technology that removes imagination and replaces it with someone else’s vision. It is with that thought in mind that I smiled at the young girl reading her story and sharing the start of a new and incredible journey.

So as the sun sets on another day, imagination is a gift. Perhaps we all have it but not everyone embraces the power of imagination. Hold tight with all that you can and use your imagination to open new worlds every day, no matter what.
