One’s imagination


When one’s imagination is fertile and healthy, one’s actions are collected and effective.

In contrast, when one needs the external world to fill the void within, one is prey to one’s actions. The action comes first, often in a series, a barrage of acts and movements, sterile and impotent in the shadow of their numbers and virulence. Such futile displays of desperation often point to that dearth of imagination.
