The Imagi Nation (Daily Prompt: Fantasy)

Two Lips

Two Lips

What a sad place the world would be without fantasy.  There is a poignant scene in Miracle on 34th Street when Kris Kringle teaches Suzie how to imagine.  It always reminds me how important it is to encourage a child’s imagination using whatever means they can understand.  Fantasy is one way: it is gentle, inspires hope, gives us incentive to get through hard times or to be on our best behavior when it would be easy to get cranky.  Most importantly, fantasy provides room for us to expand and embellish an image or story thereby cultivating our personal creativity.
