I'm reading 'The Art of James Christenson - The Art of Imagination, as told to Renwick St James', and right at the beginning of the book he writes of meeting up with an old friend whom he discovers never takes his 30 minute drive home from work in the same way.
'That resonated in my own life. Like many people in this age of getting there faster, I sometimes lose sight of the journey in the light of the goal. What my friend had done with a simple change in his routine was to leave space for the unexpected within the bounds of ordinary life.......My friend Ralph found a simple way to keep his evening drive from becoming routine. I like that idea , that within an ordinary life you can leave space for noticing the world around you and keeping alive the inner universe of imagination.'

'In the universe of the mind lie treasures and surprises, fertile soils and elegant creations, new angels and old dragons, visions of other worlds and the quiet contemplation of death.'
