Inspired by the Illustration Friday word: Suspense.
Childhood imagination is wonderful - fills in blank spaces, the unknown beyond the horizon, answers the question: what will happen next? As a kid, what your imagination provides may not always be pleasant. And the suspense of waiting for the imagined to befall can be interminable.
I'm glad I still have that imagination - and even more pleased to have context for what it conjurs up. Still, I don't do suspense.
