On my way to the studio (, I pass a church with a sign out in front.

A few weeks ago, when it was really hot, the sign read "Think it's hot?  Imagine Hell."

It got my attention.

But I'll be honest, I didn't really know what to do with something like that.

The first thing that came to my mind, and what I said to my husband when I later told him about it, was "really?".

Really?  You want me to imagine Hell?  You want everyone who drives by & reads the sign to imagine Hell?

Now, I don't want to get into a debate about religion.  That's not what this is about.  I'm not criticizing.  I'm questioning.

Because I'm confident that there are plenty of people in our town, in our city, in our state, in our country, in our world - who will tell you they don't need to imagine Hell because they are living in it.  And I'm confident that there are plenty of other folks out there who will say they've seen it.

For me, it's a matter of deliberate creation.  I want to imagine what I DO want to experience (not the other way around).  Through my imagination, I want to  create what I want to see & live.

"Imagine all the people
Living for today

Imagine all the people
Living life in peace

Imagine all the people
Sharing all the world"
-John Lennon
