The Importance of Imagination

Here is a great post on imagination by Jenn at Transpositions.  I'm particularly interested in the importance of a connection to place for the imagination.

She states...
The human imagination is grounded in and influenced by place and the world around it. It is only by knowing the particular, Berry says, that we can understand the universal. Only by being grounded in a place can we see how we fit in relation to other people and to the whole of Creation. This groundedness, this particularly placed, religious imagination, then, is what we must cultivate if we are going to succeed in the Christian task to love our neighbors. We must place ourselves in relation to the other, and by so doing, imagine and understand something of the kingdom of God on earth.
