Use Your Imagination

I wanted them the moment I saw them. They set my mind to swirling with possible ideas. I asked and they were released to follow me home.

This could be it. Now use your imagination to stand the three joined rods up. Space them in a rough triangle a minimum of a foot apart so they do not touch. Add another elbow sweep to the top right, so the curved section of rod becomes one piece with two curves. Sink their feet in a concrete footing and place it somewhere in the vicinity of the old chimney. I think I have a sculpture.

There are times when I can see. Seeing is different than looking.

The ordinary is changed to something with hidden meaning and I wonder what that is.

Or it could just be my imagination running away with me.

You are so creative! Can't wait to see the finished project.

Wow! I can 'see' what you are thinking of, though I never would have 'seen' it by myself. Go for it!

I think what you describe is the same exact thing, seeing and creativity. I love it, and the view from the resident gardener's deck! :-)

You bet seeing is different. I got a glimpse of it and I like what you see. The soupy morning fog has been hanging around here too. Love the colors in that sky photo. Skywatch Friday hasn't been so colorful lately.

Christopher, you and I think alike ... I'd have brought those rods home for the same reason. I've got all sorts of things stored in my garage waiting to become art!

That view is just achingly beautiful.

I see & sense the meaning of the sculpture that you have 'felt' within your heart. Go for it.
Morning mist in the mtns is beautiful & refreshing. A sort of cleansing of the gardens as well as the soul, clearing the mind for aspirations to come forth.
