Imagining Imagination

vol. 12, num. 4 :: 2013.02.15 — 2013.02.28

Imagination enables us to transform our current reality and empowers the passion to question the status quo. Increasingly, however, it seems that we are living in a world that commodifies imagination. We look to figures like Steve Jobs and Walt Disney as idolized imaginers, yet forget those path-blazing dissenters who yearn for justice, beauty and hospitality in our very neighborhoods. This week's topic focuses on re-claiming imagination through our everyday actions.

Even in a country you know by heart
its hard to go the same way twice
the life of the going changes.
The chances change and make a new way.
Any tree or stone or bird
can be the bud of a new direction. The
natural correction is to make intent
of accident. To get back before dark
is the art of going.

Wendell Berry
