Before we knew, lunch was done – something was started.
What caused that – modest venue, simple service or good food?
No, it was imagineering. With a fellow imagineer.
Not dis-similar approaches, similar ideas.
Project idea of mine might become a thing.
Marvelous transformative thing – might improve some lives.
Two imagineers think so.
Aligned thinking, more than perfect design. Similar values, aims, ideas notwithstanding vastly different (or maybe not) personalities, common touchstone issues in our lives – understanding, loose-agreement, willingness to be agreeable. Imagining it can happen, can work, can help, can do good – oh wow, just imagine!
So busy doing. Doing work. Doing family. Doing obligations. Doing activities. Doing what we should do. Doing what we have been meaning to get around to. Doing what someone is phoning about, to find out if we’ve done it yet. Doing what someone expects us to do. Doing what we expect someone things we ought to be doing …doing, doing.
Like an auctioneer – going, going, gone … doing, doing, done. So much to be doing, we lose sight of imagining. Playful imagining. Ambitious imagining. Mind-wandering imagining. Like a daytime conscious dream.
Imagineering, to imagine what you can create if you take time to just imagine …
Imagineering is an equal opportunity employer – anyone can do it.
Let it run through your day, your life. Or through any little project – like gold veins in rocks, you have no idea how rich an experience that might be. Or where it might take you.
For really cool fun, meet another imagineer – just imagine what you can get cooking together.
Just imagine ... anything.
column written/ published from Calgary, AB
morning walk: 14C/57F, light clouds, light breeze – light on my feet. Still not pain free, but for the first time in a long while, I was walking faster than Gusta. She seemed to need to dawdle … which is OK. I’m OK. Everything is OK – better enjoy these moments of perfection, alignment, adrenaline and possibility …
AMEN!!! And I do admit to being crazy but less so than others I know. We all are, SE, Calgary, AB
I truly don't know that much about Canada; your traditions, your politics, your social issues and such. I do know a little bit more about the good ole US of A. Enough, some days, to know I don't want to know more. The most astounding thing to me is the deception of many about the traditions of our Nation's past. Since the airwaves are all abuzz with the controversy surrounding the Confederate flag for instance. The flag represented a part of our growth when certain individuals sought to maintain a quote/unquote tradition of sorts. It was established to honor those who were willing to give their lives for what they believe. Right, wrong, or indifferent people needed to maintain a staff of servants. The treatment of those servants varied with each slave owner. Slaves have been around since the beginning of recorded history. It is the age old battle of the haves and have nots. Now because one zealot carried that flag as a banner to represent his hatred or racism, if you will, we must do away with it. Come on people, if we allow one person or one group to dictate the elimination of certain inalienable rights, then we are no better than the land that our forefathers immigrated from. Before long the Constitution will be simply a memory and we will be right back where we started. The bottom line is there are a lot of people who have a problem with people who are different than them. Ugly truth!!! GW, Bon Wier, Tx.
