And..with what do you feed it? Do you weed it, or let it grow wild? Is it perennial or annual? Ah, the questions!
Here, I'm using the garden as a metaphor for inner thoughts and imagination. If the imagination is well fed, then the "garden" will grow. How it grows will depend on how much attention we give it - or how much it demands.
I've been accused of having an over-active imagination... guilty, I am! This can be both a blessing and a curse. On one hand, I am lucky to be able to express my feelings through my work. On the other hand, it can be overwhelming at times. Though the imagination is nourishing for the soul, it can also be a major distraction!
