I am always looking for inspiration on subjects to post about.  You remember those wonderful teachers from our past who would assign you an essay on "What you did last summer?" ; "Who I am" ; or one of our all time favorites "My Most Unforgettable Person".  Now THAT could lead us down the road to trouble if it happened to be discovered that we had not written about someone expecting us to write about them.  I diverge AGAIN! 

Most of you know I take my inspiration from many sources - middle of the night epiphanies, nature, relationships, scripture, something I have read, a memory, OF COURSE, Hero - The Wonder Dog and on and on.  The thing about those of us who sit around thinking (I have been accused of over-thinking) ~random thoughts often lead us off on rabbit trails.  (Did you notice I have gotten off pig trails and now started chasing down rabbit trails--you can thank Hero for that) My best subjects are often found down the rabbit trail. 

Recently, it occurred to me to give you a challenge which would then challenge me ---let's see that would be a challenge to challenge.  I LOVE word play!  What if you gave me one word to write a blog on?  One word ~ with no comment or preconceived notion of the direction I should take the subject.  I think it would be a wonderful example of how wonderfully diverse we all are.  I might write about the one thing you were thinking about when you came up with the word, but probably not.  You might start wondering what alternative universe I live in after reading my thoughts on your word.  You might think I am a brick short of a load.  It will be interesting!

Would you be willing to play the game with me?  Am I up to the challenge?

One word and one word only ~ comment on this blog, send an email on the bottom of the right side of the blog page, comment on Facebook, send a smoke signal.  All you have to do is send me the word and I will write the essay for you (get it--go back to the section on school essays).  You come up with a word and I will do the rest.

  1. What an interesting idea, Lulu! Here's a word - wild. What will you do with that one, I wonder?

  2. HMMMM---you are making me think, Martha! Thank You!


Your comments keep my writing and often cause me to think. A written form of a hug or a pat on the back and an occasional slap into reality---I treasure them all!
