Creating a World

taking care

One of the things that I absolutely love about writing is that I can create or re-create any world that I see in my mind and put it on paper for other people to experience. I have always had a very vibrant imagination- so much so that for many years I thought that I was literally crazy. I would look at people, places and things, and my mind would begin to draw them in a different light. I would look at a highway interchange and see in my mind the ancient grasslands that came before. I would glance at a young boy and see him age into a wizardly old man, complete with gold-rimmed spectacles and laugh lines around his mouth.

Whether I am seeing what was, or what will be is hard to say. Perhaps that is what imagination and make-believe truly is- a window to the flow of time, the ability to see the shifting nature of things that were, and are yet to come. There is so much that we don’t know- about everything. We study, we learn, we grow and change, and reality does the same with us. I believe, in my heart that there is an ebb and flow to everything- that the world is not full of unchanging static things, but rather full of things searching for balance. Things can remain calm for a while, objects can be still for a time, but sooner or later, everything- from stone to fire will shift, change, grow or diminish. It is the way of things.
