This website has been created by Anne Yarwood, resident in Ascot for over 50 years, to show how individuals CAN effect change… can DO something about their concerns, in an imaginative way.

Dear Readers,

This modest record of life in Ascot, South East England, where we’ve lived for over 50 years … is WAVING at other people who are inspired by the IMAGINATION & believe in the POWER OF STORY.

TIA’s VISION is to offer a HOSTED SPACE to record examples of my own & friends’ Inspired action, created by our own imaginations to empower CHANGE.  SMALL IS BEAUTIFUL & IT IS EVERYWHERE !

Faithfully keeping to our focus that OUR IMAGINATIONS POWER OUR ACTIONS, the website’s interest has covered a wide range of social, political, artistic and spiritual topics including:- Tender stories, social injustice, wild creatures, current international concerns, loved pets, and a lot of LEGACY tales about me & friends DOING STUFF, TOGETHER.

Einstein speaks for us all :-  ” IMAGINATION is more important than knowledge. For knowledge is limited to all we know & understand, while IMAGINATION embraces the entire world and all there will be to know and understand.”

TIA features a BLOG: thought provoking glance; STORY: intrigued response; GALLERY with images to inspire; and TALES : expansive, so more a cuppa and biscuit moment….

And delighted to introduce WAKE UP ! a new page on TIA with snippets of information for our Readers which we hope you’ll find interesting and maybe inspire to take Imaginative Action and chat about … Do have a look at our new WAKE UP !

I’D LOVE TO HEAR FROM YOU  –  theimaginationacts@gmail.com

VIVA, ever in solidarity,

Anne

Awe & Wonderment ; Western Australia

| Blogs | No Comments

Today the Blog gazes across far distant time. What strange world is this ? Earth.

In the foreground are the PINNACLES. Unusual rock spires in Namburg National Park, Western Australia. They are made from ancient sea shells (limestone); the topic of research.

Research into human existence in this part of earth at earliest archeological sites reveals that there was an Aboriginal presence 40 – 60,000 years ago; the oldest continuous culture on earth.

A culture whose hall mark is ONENESS WITH NATURE; within a belief system where nature & landscape are sacred. Aboriginal oral tradition is built upon a belief in the DREAMTIME: the reality of Dreaming.

The international politics of the Palestinian Israeli conflict has a lengthy history. (see the current Wake-Up). It demands study and our attention.

Alongside, are the daily lives of both peoples. They demand our imagination’s attention: ” If that was me ? My children’s education ?”
