Imagination is how we make sure we fill our lives with meaningful things.
It is how we connect our passions with the needs of others.
In-between the two lies an apprenticeship of the imagination where others help us to become more the person we can be and hone the work we want to do.
I am not thinking about formal apprenticeship schemes, though these may count, and I am not primarily thinking about young people, though everyone is included.
There are people all around us who can be our mentors, helping us become the people we dream of and to use the talents we’ve been shaping.
We need words to describe all of this. Our forms of words will hold us prisoner or allow us to fly.
The best words will make it possible to imagine more.
