Imagination allows us to break through habitual ways of perception and patterns of behavior. It lets us see the world as if it could be otherwise.
Our imaginations offer us space. When you open your imagination–when you see beyond what you currently know–that feeling of spaciousness will feed you. Your world is now bigger.
You could think of the imagination as breathing room for the soul.
Maxine Greene said, “The role of imagination is to awaken, to disclose the ordinarily unseen, unheard, and unexpected.”
