"Just as the Earth is rejuvenated over the course of its Winter rest, she imagines a world that has been cleansed. She imagines a world in which the ego is extinguished by the humility and compassion in people's hearts. She imagines a world in which people's judgments are no match for the undying curiosity and excitement to learn and share their differences, instead of feeling threatened by them. As the crisp Winter air flows through her being, a world without war unfolds before her, because there is no longer a need. Imagine raising our children differently, guiding them to create a world in which the entire human race is on the same team, a world in which there is no 'us', and there is no 'them'. 'Imagine all the people' [...] ~John Lennon" Elisabeth Ladwig
"Imagine" captures a dreamlike scene set in a wintery landscape. In the center, there's a woman clad in an elegant, flowing yellow gown with long, wavy hair cascading down her back. She's shown in profile, gently holding a small moon in her hands. Surrounding her, several small birds are in mid-flight amidst a flurry of soft snowflakes that obscure the distant line of dark, leafless trees. The overall atmosphere is ethereal, as if the woman is engaged with the magical elements around her. The image has a soft texture that enhances its fantastical ambiance.
