I saw the “Magic of Belle Isle” on ON Demand the other night and it was quite a good film, especially for those who have lost their imagination or just can’t get their imagination mojo moving in the right direction. I’m not going to review it save to say a young girl in the film asks western writer Freeman where do stories come from? His answer is something like look around, they are everywhere. It got me thinking about imagination. Where does that come from and how do you tap into it? Same answer to me. Keep looking and building one thought on top of another until something forms into an idea. Then act on that idea and see what happens. Here are other thoughts on Imagination
