More than ever, we are coming to realize how essential imagination is
We keep talking about how necessary it is to educate our children and young adults for uncertain times.
This is it
This is our uncertain time
Are we seeing it now?
Imagination is the root of hope
The root of connection
The root of solidarity
The root of empathy
The root of possibility
When all of this has passed, we’ll reflect
And look back with our emotional minds
Finding the story we are building as of now
Is it a story anchored in hope and possibility?
or is it a story anchored in worry and fear?
This is where imagination finds its two paths.
Which one are we choosing and who are we taking with us?
A Message of Hope from the Author
Having in mind that there is not a “right” feeling or emotion during this time, all we can do is try to be present for ourselves and all of those around us, physically and virtually. Hoping this post can provoke some thoughts about the essence and the possibilities of imagination in this time of uncertainty.
