Here's a philosophical question for you this beautiful Sunday... How much does your imagination weigh?

HUH? What sort of silly question is that, you say? How much does your imagination weigh? You can interpret that any way you like but for me it means how much imagination do you have? Lots? Or only a tiny bit? Or maybe somewhere in between?

It depends on the time and situation. If I get my head locked onto an idea my imagination can weigh me down with activity. It's go on overdrive and can make my head spin. But as for every day mine isn't that active...usually. I'm a very literal person but when the other side of my brain lights off...look out! shocked smilewinkgrin

imagination it is weightless but at the same time it is the heaviest thing there ever was or is!  It is boundless, it is the creator of some of the most beautiful  helpful  healing and literaly life saving things ever made or conceived on this planet, but with that said  it is also responsible for  the creatation of  some of the most ugly and hideous, and grotesques, and painful and destructive, things ever made and put on this earth!
My imagination is always busy so it must weigh allot!  I like to create. whether it be in writing, or drawing or molding things in clay or  what ever!
I can only  imagine not having or using my imagination!!   smilewinkgrin

A deep question :) - and it's 2 in the morning... yikes :)

Anyway, I'm w/ you, Chutz. For me, it really depends on the situation, how I'm feeling, all that sort of thing. My kids help me to remember to be imaginative. I *can* be very I guess I must have some level of an imagination... :)

All that said, though, I get caught up - often - on the "realities" of life... and am a pretty literal person, too.

I'm a pretty complex person, I think :) :) Don't know if any of that makes any sense... but it's a great question, Chutz!

Main Health Issues: Dysautonomia/POTS; CFS/Fibro; Chronic Pain (back issues, migraines, carpal tunnel, among other things); Chronic Hypertension; Hypothyroidism and Hypoadrenalism; Mixed Sleep Apnea (on BiPap); Depression/Anxiety; Vitamin D Deficiency.

MAJOR surprise - Pregnant, w/ twin little girls (after six boys). Due Sept, 2010. Praying they are healthy. YES, you can have chronic pain AND have a successful pregnancy - not easy, but it can be done. :)

   Dear Chutz,
    Hehe about 80 Lbs all together! hehe My daughters have such strange imagination. I try very hard to listen to their dreams and make them come true. Here is a good example; Rosie was telling me all about how she had a dream where she was in the biggest bath tub ever! With bubbles up to the roof! Oh is would be so wonderful if it were real. I could tell her little imagination was going at top speed! SO..  The next week I picked up a bubble blower at wal-mart. Then drew them a bath with way to much bubble bath. Set up the Bubble blower on shelf. Added in a tea set, bathtub crayons, bathtub tint and music... then let them imagine away for an hour. I think it is really important for them to know that if they can dream it, imagine it, they can reach it!
     ...for me alone.. Sometimes I wish I could turn my imagination off. I day dream constantly about things. More often than not, I try to make my imagination a reality. Which is a blessing and a curse, if that makes sense. Sometimes, as White Beard states, it can be heavy. The longing for the things I dream, imagine having, wanting a way to make them real. .. For example imagining a cabin..small, quiet, out of the way. I want it so bad I can taste it. Other things are easy to imagine and make true. LIke a warm smile from my husband and an almost to tight hug of appreciation :-)  
     I think for the most part, imagination is mostly weightless and healthy in small doses. It keeps us dreaming and thinking and working towards the future  :-)
