I like these. I do know that some of the daily routine tasks would be horribly boring if I couldn't daydream or use the imagination to keep my mind occupied "elsewhere"

Some days, all I do is daydream. It can be a means to get me through and most of the time, it's much more fun than reality! I can visit places in dreams that no one else can join or loads of people can join. Quiet, serene places or waves crashing. The ballet or the symphony. Cars honking or snow falling... the rhythms of life.

I like the word "Imagination ", but I couple it with possibilities and realities. Not just dreaming.
I'm a knitter, and DS gave me four skeins of yarn , in two different colors, for a christmas present. Each skein is about 109 yards, so that gives me 436 yards of imagination.
It's not about designing a trip to the moon or figuring out the universe, but in a small way, it is imagine what I can do with 436 yards of yarn.
