Imagination and Love will change the world.
We are all born with the gift of imagination. Everything we see around us that humans have created once existed only as a thought form deep within someone's imagination. Imagination is the ability to see things in the mind that cannot be perceived through the other senses. It is, by definition, a type of second sight, or a sixth sense. As children this ability is incredibly strong and unhindered. Albert Einstein said,
"Imagination is more important than knowledge. Knowledge is limited. Imagination encircles the world."
Some of the most amazing memories from my childhood were those moments sitting cross-legged on the classroom carpet as our teacher read us a book at story time! From those early moments of my life, I knew I wanted to write stories and share the magic of imagination with others. I penned my first story when I was just 7 years old. It was a story where all my close friends and I discovered a world below our school. It was a world full of wizards and dragons, and as I shared the story with my friends, I discovered a sense of joy and happiness in using my imagination to stimulate theirs.
It is that same sense of joy and happiness I experience today when I share my stories with others. With the release of my first four stories, it is my hope and desire that they bring some joy and happiness to my readers. I believe imagination is one of the greatest gifts we are given as human beings, and with a dose of love and compassion, imagination can truly transform the world in which we live.
