Lost Horizon by James Hilton

The book Lost Horizon by James Hilton is one of my favorite novels. Three men and women traveling in a plane, crash on the side of a very high mountain. They are led to safety by a mysterious stranger to a imaginary Utopia of a Tibetan lamasery. The residents live extended lives and people practice the best of civilization living a peaceful existence in beautiful surroundings. The mystical setting of the story is named Shangri-La by the author.

For this prompt please select an imaginary place you have read about, saw in a movie, or create your own. Respond by drawing, painting, digital media, photographs and or writing about an aspect of that place. The ability of imagination is such an important part of ourselves as creative individuals. To be mindful of our imagination leads us to more creativity.
