    I read something the other day that made me chuckle but also contains a powerful truth. Here's a paraphrase:

    Imagi-Nation is a magical place in our minds. When we're kids, we go there to play.

    When we're adults, we go there to worry. :)

    Whe I worry about something, I quickly go to that happy place, Imagi-Nation.
    It takes me to happy thoughts and calming places.

    Often, taking a walk, even a short one, especially with my darling dog Annie,
    takes me to my Imagi-Nation.

    Thanks, dear North Star, for putting a word to it.

    I was reading Dr. Martin Rossman's book - which I found out about from this wiki forum - Its called the Worry Solution and he discusses that its the very same place in our brain that imagines the worst case scenario and absolute best scenario. His plea is for us to stop scaring ourselves with our own imagination. I recommend, if you haven't seen his you tube to do the meditation. It starts about 30 minutes into the talk
    I love the idea of using my imagination to cultivate all sorts of wonderful qualities.
