Logic will get you from A to B. Imagination will take you everywhere.
Sometimes he is Link, a character from The Legend of Zelda, other times he is Oisin (pronounced Ush-een). Sometimes I’m an outgoing professional, other times I’m a burrowing, childlike, introvert. While we are working together, or perhaps playing together would be more accurate, we are each living out our own sense of wonder.
I’m not sure I fully understand this legend, but I know there is a nobility about Link, he is some one who overcomes great odds with little inclination to be a hero. Probably the kind of hero most of us would identify with.
As we climb the hill to Dunhill Castle, Oisin notices a beautiful moth and captures it in a jar. Later he sends my spirit soaring, as he releases it again, into the cool breeze of the Anne Valley below.
We both understand that the world can be harsh and that you would need every weapon in your soul’s armory to deal with it all some days. But like so many others, we also share the ability to suspend disbelief, to enter the zone of story and myth, to allow ourselves the freedom to imagine.
We were on location at Dunhill Castle, County Waterford. Thanks to Oisin Hennessy for the concept, role play and wardrobe.
I love this adventure the two of you have been on recently. I totally agree imagination is a very important part of life. Without imagination life would be so dull and nothing new would be invented……I hope you have a great weekend. I always coming to your place for a visit….
LOL. You are very welcome to my place any time Nancy! Yes imagination is such a precious commodity, and lifts our spirits every time:~))
That is so lovely and one of my favorite quotes!
Hi Laura, I've just discovered that quote and found it amazing that it was from Albert Einstein….I think it will become one of my favourites too:~)
