“Write down the thoughts of the moment…”

“…Those that come unsought for are commonly the most valuable.”

~Francis Bacon, 1561-1626, Philosopher, Statesman, Scientist and Author

Listening to the audio book of Mrs. Dalloway has plunged me into the richly descriptive world which Virginia Woolf created.  My eyes and ears feel refreshed, as if a film has been pulled away, revealing little secret truths:

  • The pinks on the petals of the Japanese apple blossoms look as if the blooms are blushing.
  • Hearing Road to Nowhere (Ozzy Osbourne) brings me back to lazy summer nights, swatting mosquitoes and laughing with my intoxicated friends.
  • The new traffic pattern created by Chicago road construction transforms daily commuters into hypnotized lemmings heading for the sea.

What are you discovering this very moment? Record your thoughts, no matter how ordinary they seem; I bet they’ll be extraordinary through another pair of eyes.
