"the rich topsoil of our imagination"

I love this quote -- it's from Bill Kenower's Daily Blog which you can find at http://www.authormagazine.org/editors_blog/?p=687

"Despite the wealth of solid things all about us, our worlds are constantly being invented, as malleable and fluid as any river. It doesn’t matter whether we are writing books or starting families, our futures are planted in the rich topsoil of our imagination, vague and similar as seedlings, but accumulating specificity over time. We fill in all the colors and shapes and sounds to build from what could be what some day is, and the experience we call living is actually us being propelled forward by the creative need to meet the world we are every day imagining."
