KIOSB D17: Free Associating
Thanks to the Kickin’ It Old School prompt for today, I’m free associating a random list of words they came up with, to see what comes up for each word. Feel free to play along in the comments if you like!
River. Canoeing. Slowly meandering our way down the river. Exploring. Taking it all in. Never knowing what’s around the next corner. The adventure of it all. Being open to possibilities. The surprise encounters.
Fresh. I think of produce — of fresh fruits and veggies, full of color and life and sustenance, grown for our survival and thriving.
Escape. I immediately think of books. They were always my escape into the world of imagination as a child, and they continue to give me space to escape off into the worlds of imagination, learning, and growth. I love the way they allow us to share and see through the lens of another’s perspective.
Moment. Interesting that the moment that came to mind first was one of standing under the stars at night, gazing up at the sky in wonder for… a moment. Those are always amazing, calm moments of true peace.
Night. As you can tell from my last answer, I tend to find night to be a very peaceful time, and that’s the sense I got when I thought about it — not so much a word or a memory that came to mind, but rather that calm, quiet sense of peace that tends to come late at night. I find it so relaxing to shop at night, to drive at night, to get things done after others have gone to bed. There are less expectations from others late at night.
