Imagination- the path to anywhere

This is one of my favorite posts for several reasons.

It introduces a guest post I was asked to do for a fellow blogger, Kathleen Aherne. I was flattered and honored.

I share some of my personal life, which I don’t do very often.

It was a featured post at Blogger’s Pit Stop.

So here it is, and it’s actually two posts in one- a post I shared to introduce and link to the guest post. Enjoy and imagine.

 

Let imagination take you where you want to go

I’m a physician who studied mostly science classes in school, so I don’t think of myself as artistic.  This blog serves as a creative outlet for me, but that’s about where it ends.  I  find inspiration in multiple sources- my family and friends, nature, the patients I treat, music, and reading but I don’t think of myself as creative.

So when Kathleen Aherne asked me to write a guest post for her website, Let’s Create, I was a little surprised but also excited at the chance to share some of what has inspired my life. She asked me to write a two part story, so I am sharing part 1 with you here.

You can start reading it here, and then continue with the link to the rest of the post at  Let’s Create.

Reading-The fastest way to everywhere

I grew up as an only child, in a home that was not well off financially. With no siblings, and few neighborhood kids, I used  my imagination to have fun. I watched television shows but there was no internet or digital devices for entertainment. Mostly, I read books which became my favorite pastime.

I still have my three favorite books-      Mother Goose Nursery Rhymes,

 

 

 

 

 

 

Better Homes and Gardens Story Book, and   

The Golden Treasury of Natural History,

all of which have survived multiple moves in readable condition. I don’t read them now, but reading continues to be my favorite way to pass a relaxing evening or rainy afternoon.

When I was young, my mother enjoyed country music and she never missed a TV show featuring a pretty young blonde singer. With her bouffant hairstyle and frilly dresses, I thought the singer was a famous star. I didn’t know she was new to country music, trying to break into the business, and this was her first major opportunity.

Creativity inspires worship

 

Revelation 4, NIV 

In the center, around the throne, were four living creatures, and they were covered with eyes, in front and in back.

 The first living creature was like a lion, the second was like an ox, the third had a face like a man, the fourth was like a flying eagle.

 Each of the four living creatures had six wings and was covered with eyes all around, even under its wings. Day and night they never stop saying:

“‘Holy, holy, holy

is the Lord God Almighty,

who was, and is, and is to come.”

Whenever the living creatures give glory, honor and thanks to him who sits on the throne and who lives forever and ever,  the twenty-four elders fall down before him who sits on the throne and worship him who lives for ever and ever.

They lay their crowns before the throne and say:

 “You are worthy, our Lord and God,
    to receive glory and honor and power,
for you created all things,
    and by your will they were created
    and have their being.”
