"Rivers are magnets for the imagination, for conscious pondering and subconscious dreams, thrills and fears. People stare into the moving water, captivated, as they are when gazing into a fire. What is it that draws and holds us? The rivers' reflections of our lives and experiences are endless. The water calls up our own ambitions of flowing with ease, of navigating the unknown. Streams represent constant rebirth. The waters flow in, forever new, yet forever the same; they complete a journey from beginning to end, and then they embark on the journey again."
~ From Lifelines by Tim Palmer
Next time you are struggling to find your creativity, to develop a new idea, to strengthen a story line, follow the river until you find your imagination.
Sometimes it's a whitewater adventure, and sometimes it a lazy float day in a hot inner tube, but it's always a great ride.
What are some other imagination magnets?
