so it is

i've been thinking, as i often do, about how experience usually begins with the thoughts, the images we hold in our minds. just a bit ago, i came upon this:

“Imagination is everything. It is the preview of life's coming attractions.” --Albert Einstein

This is a wonderful quote and such a true sentiment. Albert Einstein was such a fascinating person. I have a huge list of quotes that I once downloaded of his -- at the time I was considering a story with themes about the vastness of the universe or some such sentiment, I can't even remember now. Just last night I read something about his view of God that I thought fascinating. Imagination is such a powerful force, especially when we can use it to channel our dreams.

i haven't read much on einstein, but from what i've learned, i'm more drawn to his philosophical outlook on the world, than i am to his achievements as a physicist.

"Imagination is such a powerful force, especially when we can use it to channel our dreams."

my thoughts exactly.
