daydreaming

As kids in school we were constantly being chided by our teachers to “stop daydreaming and pay attention!”  Maybe there is a time and a place but isn’t daydreaming a good thing?  Letting the mind wander gives us a chance to escape for a brief time during periods of stress or anxiety, it lets us follow a creative path and has the possibility to lead us to fresh new inspiration, and daydreaming gives us the chance to try out big new ideas and see where they may take you.  I think we owe it to ourselves to do a little daydreaming.  Make some time, take a quiet walk and see where your creative mind takes you.

I agree wholeheartedly - daydreaming is so important at any age, but especially for children.

Daydreaming can be the most creative time. Your blog is lovely, but I don't see a link for following. Also? So many people will not comment when you have word verification. Just a thought....
