Henry David Thoreau about the World and Imagination

What could be more suitable for the beginning of the week than a quote about imagination?

This world is but a canvas to our imaginations.

Henry David Thoreau

I like this canvas metaphor very much! It leads to comparing life to an oil painting: painted layer by layer in a long process including the opportunity if change in any state, never definitely finished. Just the upper layer is visible, but the whole personality consisting of all layers – visible and invisible.

What about you? How are you painting your imaginations onto the canvas of the world? Are you good in painting?
