As I work on a new character for my granddaughter's book, I try and remember what it was like to use my imagination as I did when I was a child.  When did I lose touch with that part of my being?  I am amazed at how quickly children can  slip into character without any theatrical  training or coaching.  They just let themselves go, no dress rehearsals, no scripts...they just wing it and let  their imaginations take them to the places and characters they have created in their minds.  How often do we as adults over think an issue, worry about how we may be perceived and then sadly conform to whatever it is "we are supposed to be?"  I want to step out of myself and imagine the possibilities and then  slip into that character but I know  that I won't.  I am too old, to settled and afraid of the what ifs...so for now I will channel my imagination into a character I can put on paper...but someday...just maybe when I truly connect with my inner child, I will let my imagination take over and just wing it!
