Send in the artists, mystics, and clowns.

A quote from Brennan Manning that I found quite cool.

"Send in the artists, mystics, and clowns. Their fertile imagination pours the new wine of the gospel into fresh wineskins (Luke 5:38). With fresh language, poetic vision, and striking symbols, they express God's inexpressible Word in artistic forms that are charged with the power of God, engaging our minds and stirring our hearts as they flare and flame"

One cannot put a price on such truth. In fact, the precious gift of artists, mystics and clowns are felt so deeply in the soul, gifting the mind with simplistic pleasure and engaging the physical with hearty emotion brings us to that treasure of experiencing pulsing life in the moment. Imagination is a national treasure. A good place to hang out and enjoy the day.



Flat Stanley is all about having a fertile imagination, eh?

OMG! What a blast from the past!
I used to LOVE Flat Stanley when I was a kid. I had all but forgotten about him. Thanks for the memories.
