              The place is ancient Egypt. You need lumber to build a house. No trees grow in Egypts desert, but a ship from Lebanon regularly brings cedar logs to a nearby port. How do you get lumber for your house? You take many bundles of papyrus and a sack of frankincense to the port and of...fer them to the ships captain in exchange for his logs. The captain knows he can sell your goods back home at a profit. You bargain, but in the end, he takes your goods, and you take his logs. International trade is born. This book traces trade in the ancient world from the Phoenicians sailing the Mediterranean Sea to the camel caravans traveling the 6,400 mile (10,000 km) Silk Route to traders who grew rich bringing spices by sea from Southeast Asia to Europe.

              Heavy wind swept across the clearing, howling through the surrounding maples and pounding the tiny cabin with sheets of rain as the worn and bent farmer trudged across the newly-sown lawn, making for the warmth of the candle-lit windows. Did you get a mental picture as you read t...he above sentence? Did you see the cabin? Did you see the rain blowing across the clearing and beating on the tiny structure? If you answered yes, consider yourself extremely lucky. You have retained your imagination. You can see beyond the obvious. You have enough mind control to let your mind be uncontrolled. You can leave the everyday world and visit other worlds whenever you want to. If you answered no, if you saw only words, go ahead and make your reservation at the Home for the Imaginationally Challenged. But don't despair, you can always regain what you've lost. We are all born with an imagination. It starts with the first intrusion of light into our newborn eyes, and then begins to grow and mature as we grow and mature. Your imagination dictates how you live your life and how you see the world. And it's always been there to see you through the tough times, trials, and tribulations. How many times did you make it through some boring school class by letting your imagination take you away? How many times did you reduce your parents' scolding voices to the level of crickets on a hot summer night while your mind was in the next galaxy? Live to experience all you can experience. Live to see the world through open eyes and an open mind. Live to realize there are no boundaries to your imagination. Live...to imagine
