Poem for Today ~ Pirate Story

Pirate Story

Robert Louis Stevenson

Three of us afloat in the meadow by the swing,   
  Three of us aboard in the basket on the lea.   
Winds are in the air, they are blowing in the spring,   
  And waves are on the meadow like the waves there are at sea.   
Where shall we adventure, to-day that we’re afloat,
  Wary of the weather and steering by a star?   
Shall it be to Africa, a-steering of the boat,   
  To Providence, or Babylon, or off to Malabar?   
Hi! but here’s a squadron a-rowing on the sea—   
  Cattle on the meadow a-charging with a roar!
Quick, and we’ll escape them, they’re as mad as they can be,   
  The wicket is the harbour and the garden is the shore.


Inspiring Quote for Today ~ The Power of Imagination

Imagination is more important than knowledge. For knowledge is limited to all we now know and understand, while imagination embraces the entire world, and all there ever will be to know and understand.

Today’s Positive Thought ~ Living the Life We Imagined

“Life isn’t about finding yourself; it’s about creating yourself. So live the life you imagined (Henry David Thoreau).” Every moment of every day we are creating and recreating ourselves. We often do it without thinking about it. What if we purposely set about in creating ourselves so we could live the life we’ve imagined? If we do, we will experience a new found sense of freedom and purpose.

Think About It ~ Unleash Your Imagination

“It’s time to start living the life you’ve imagined (Henry James).” Unleash your imagination, place no limitations on it. Let your imagination take you to places you’d dared not previously imagine. You’ll know when you’ve arrived at the right place. When you arrive at the right place throw your heart over the fence and the rest of you will follow. What you were imagining will soon become your reality. 

Today’s Power Thought ~ It Just May Be Possible

We exercise to stay strong. We eat well to stay healthy. Is it time to exercise your imagination? Our imagination allows us to see things which we may not have thought possible. If, however, we can imagine it, we can create or discover it. I think I’ll grab a cup of coffee and imagine what tomorrow will look like for me if all things were possible. 

Something to Think About

Have you read a good book lately? I’m in the middle of a page turner. I’ll be disappointed when it ends. I’m hoping it has a good ending. There have been enough ups and downs, twists and turns to keep my mind racing after I set my book down. A good book does so much more for me than a film. A good book requires me to use my imagination and see what is happening from my reference point. Enjoy some quiet time with a good book. Here’s hoping you choose a page turner.
