Fun Monday Challenge #6

Angel Eggs by Lani
This prompt comes from Brenda Swenson and the Artist's Journal Workshop via our own susanna suchak.  Wander around your house, yard, community, or job site and pick up 3 objects.  Put them together and discover what funny, mysterious, or delightful story might unfold.  Brenda Swenson used drawing and painting to tell her story.  I used my iPad and Hipstamatic app.  But really, you could use anything.  Want some psychology behind this process?  The mind likes to mull over issues and worries, endlessly.  One way to put that endless tape on pause is to create questions for yourself.  Dutch philosophical counselor, Harm van der Gaag, says "You just keep going round in circles.  You can break the pattern by asking yourself questions..."  What are these three things doing together, make up a story.  See what happens.  Let your mind release worry and anxiety.  Play.
