James M Barrie (Peter Pan) let his imagination fly. He created worlds of adventure and inspired creative exploration.
This afternoon I made myself a pot of creme brulee tea and curled up to encounter "Finding Neverland", the movie. Every bit of me was delighted in the celebration of play.
The pure innocence of imagination taking flight and making something magical out of thin air, is inspirational.
The power of laughing and playing continues to move me.
I remember playing with my little sister.
We would make apartments out of the steps on the staircase. Our books were walls of the cities we created for our little ponies. When I was in year 4 at primary school, I created a Fairy Club.
Together, with other little friends, we met on a Saturday morning in our garden, covered with glitter. We pretended to find fairies while filling our tummies with fairy bread. Maybe this is when I fell in love with the idea of tea under a tree? Perhaps it was while pretending to find tiny beautiful ladies who could fly.
James M Barrie was quoted saying "God gave us memory so that we might have roses in December".
I love remembering those times with my sister when we would create pages of imagination.
What's on the pages of your imagination? How did you play as a child?
