Imagination

IMAGINATION

Windows opening
Hummingbirds hovering in the wind
Let love dance in the waterfalls
Touching flowers of softness
Colors overflowing the river banks

Pain surfaces for breath
Seeing bubbles of knowledge
Sending messages of hope and warning

Let live ideas
Dreams unfulfilled
Even in the dreaming
They exist only in the world
Of the imagination

Break from the chains
Release the truth
Face the awakening

It fascinates me how creative material, even though animated, will cause the awakening of emotions on the full spectrum. And in the short time of watching “11 Paper Place” I cared for the animated objects and felt what they were probably feeling.

Don’t want to give away any SPOILERS so I will just say, “11 Paper Place” is a surprise. It is fascinating, unique, awe inspiring & yes, a touch Magical.

I love the way the Imagination works & our ability to “suspend disbelief.” Daniel Houghton and the rest of the creators of “11 Paper Place” made such an amazing Gift. It was Enchanting & I was Enchanted. <3 jkm

Wild Horses
The Rolling Stones

Childhood living is easy to do
The things you wanted I bought them for you
Graceless lady you know who I am
You know I can’t let you slide through my hands
Wild horses couldn’t drag me away
Wild, wild horses, couldn’t drag me away
I watched you suffer a dull aching pain
Now you decided to show me the same
No sweeping exits or offstage lines
Could make me feel bitter or treat you unkind
Wild horses couldn’t drag me away
Wild, wild horses, couldn’t drag me away
I know I dreamed you a sin and a lie
I have my freedom but I don’t have much time
Faith has been broken, tears must be cried
Let’s do some living after we die
Wild horses couldn’t drag me away
Wild, wild horses, we’ll ride them some day
Wild horses couldn’t drag me away
Wild, wild horses, we’ll ride them some day

IMPLICIT IMAGINATIVE IMPRESSIONS

Wish You Were Here – David Gilmour

Wish You Were Here

So, so you think you can tell Heaven from Hell,
Blue skies from pain.
Can you tell a green field from a cold steel rail?
A smile from a veil?
Do you think you can tell?

And did they get you to trade your heroes for ghosts?
Hot ashes for trees?
Hot air for a cool breeze?
Cold comfort for change?
And did you exchange a walk on part in the war for a lead role in a cage?

How I wish, how I wish you were here.
We’re just two lost souls swimming in a fish bowl, year after year,
Running over the same old ground.
What have you found? The same old fears.
Wish you were here.

Sir Ken Robinson: Do Schools Kill Creativity?

Sir Ken Robinson makes an entertaining and profoundly moving case for creating an education system that nurtures (rather than undermines) creativity. Education should nurture the individual rather than be so concerned about test scores.

Encourage children to investigate their ideas and run with them. Do not stifle them with a mandated belief system of education that is limiting.

The arts are disappearing from school systems. Children have the capacity to be innovative and have tremendous talents. They just need to be brought to the surface. Picasso said that all children are born artists but they are forced to grow out of it, instead creativity should be valued and also nurtured. So many children’s dreams of succeeding in the arts are discouraged most of their childhoods.

As long as the painting is only going to go up on the fridge, that’s okay but wanting to continue into life creating any form of art is most often looked down upon as something that will turn you into a Vincent van Gogh, broke all his life. But those who own his paintings now are bloody millionaires and billionaires.

Why is the artist not supported in our society?

Writers create ways of looking at the world from a new perspective.

All artists try to find within them the muse that will open or reopen the door to the mystical, magical world of our imagination.

Well, I suggest it is valuable and important to listen to this video. It is enlightening and humorous.

Sir Ken Robinson is a brilliant mind who has important knowledge and insight to convey in his TED talk on creativity and education. Listen, hear, laugh and enjoy and if you have children or have an influence on them consider encouraging their creativity.  by Jennifer Kiley

Gavin Pretor-Pinney: Cloudy with a chance of joy
Published on Jul 16, 2013
You don’t need to plan an exotic trip to find creative inspiration. Just look up, says Gavin Pretor-Pinney, founder of the Cloud Appreciation Society. As he shares charming photos of nature’s finest aerial architecture, Pretor-Pinney calls for us all to take a step off the digital treadmill, lie back and admire the beauty in the sky above.

Let your mind go. Be a child again. Release your imagination & see what shapes the clouds are forming in your mind. Fall in New England is a great time for seeing visions not there any other time of the year. I have seen in the past while driving in Connecticut on the Merritt Parkway, the vision of an island surrounded by water. Maybe even a place to escape to as a get-a-way. Whatever the reason, clouds, in all there wonderful shapes, are a great way to escape, relax, and set your mind free.   Jk the secret keeper

Eva / Film Main Titles
from Dvein Plus

We were invited by the Spanish film director Kike Maíllo to take part of his first feature film, ‘Eva’, by making the main titles. ‘Eva’ is a retrofuturistic sci-fi thriller in which Alex, a young scientist, returns to the town where he grew up to complete an unfinished project and create a boy robot.

A project that began as a job turned nearly into a personal project due to the creative freedom and the confidence that the director gave us. We were very inspired by the whole aesthetical universe of the film: the snow, the vintage laboratories, the old machinery… and we tried to put all this together in the titles so that they would slowly introduce the viewers to the world of ‘Eva’.
