I is for Imagination

Theme ~ Good Things:

Gifted with an incredible imagination, Erin Morgenstern wrote a book called The Night Circus. A book like no other. Except then I read Death in the House of Life, by blogger friend Roland Yeomans, another spellbinding, unusual, and imaginative book. Visit Roland's blog here and check out his books in Amazon's Kindle store.

And then there's my blogger friend Susan Kane, who participates in a weekly challenge where she writes a short, marvelous, imaginative story based on letters or pictures provided. Susan also has socks that don't get along in their drawer and are traumatized by new arrivals. You can visit Susan at The Contemplative Cat.

It's good to know that imagination, so vivid in our childhood years, so often squashed as we grow up, is alive and well in the minds of authors. Sometimes they write books that astonish me.

Scientists, inventors, researchers, explorers, artists, film makers, and many others use their imaginations to make ours a better and more interesting world. 

Imagination ~ Just imagine (sorry) what our lives would be without it.....


  1. I am so very happy that there are many with imagination to write all the books i devour each day... life would be sad without imagination...

  2. :) there truly are some creative minds in the world!

  3. Fun post. I read the "Night Circus," too. Happy to visit from blogging from A to Z.

  4. Hi Inger - I was going to say nowhere without imagination .. but your first commenter says it much better ...

    I am looking forward to reading Roland's books .. after this little lot I'll be reading - a shock to my system! But fun .. haven't really done it for so long ..

    Cheers Hilary

  5. Thank you, Inger! Imagination is a gift I am blessed to use. "We are the music makers and we are the dreamers of dreams..." applies to each of us.

    And, again Thank You!

  6. Susan is a fine author. And NIGHT CIRCUS is a haunting and evocative. Thanks for mentioning me in such company!

    Imagination is what adds sparkle to the stars at night. :-)

  7. A great post for the letter I, without it we wouldn't have a lot of things. Imagination keeps our brain cells active, it lifts us above the normal baseline.

    What a nice mention of Roland's book, too. Reading a good book is so satisfying, we just want to continue on.

  8. Imagination is something the loss of which scares me.
    Sophie's Thoughts & Fumbles - A to Z Ghosts
    Fantasy Boys XXX - A to Z Drabblerotic

  9. A life without imagination wouldn't be a life at all.

  10. Imagination is something I pretty much lack..except for imagining horrible things happening to my loved ones. I'm pretty good at that!

  11. Imagination is a gift and a talent, for sure!
    I will see if I found these books translated to Portuguese. My English is not so good to read literaure.

  12. Imagination is a great "I" word, Inger....and your recommendations are always good...:)JP

  13. Without imagination, human kind would have disappeared millions of years ago.

    Yes, I also enjoy Susan Kane's wonderful imagination.

  14. Love your header.

    My imagination has been a wonderful companion for all my life!

    I'll have to check out your recommended books...

  15. Imagination is so important. We'd be lost (and boring) without it. Sedona is doing great. I posted a short update on tonight's post.

  16. Imagination is such fun! You can have roses in december, even a th south pole.

    Blessings and Bear hugs, my imaginative friend.

  17. I love writers who take me somewhere I would never think to go on my own. Thanks for the links. I will check them out.

  18. So true! I think creativity and curiosity fuel our imagination and aren't we fortunate to have the ability to indulge in flights of fancy! I'm interested in the authors and books you've recommended. :-)


Thanks for leaving a comment.. ~~ Inger
