What comes to your mind when you hear these words?
It's Sunday already! I thought I would do a Sunday Stealing again. (click on it to know more)
When I headed over to Sunday Stealing I was pleasantly surprised to find a set of words which encouraged you to think/write down whatever comes to mind when you hear that word.
In psychology there's a term for this--Free association.
Free association — a tool used in psychoanalysis — aims to deepen your self-understanding by looking at whatever thoughts, words, or images come freely to your mind. During a free association session, your therapist may ask you to share anything that is on your mind, such as memories, words, images, or daydreams.
But we aren't doing any therapy here. We're playing this just for fun. (If you want to play too, you are most welcome! You can do it on your blog and link back to Sunday Stealing. Or if you don't have a blog, feel free to use my comment box)
So here are the words that were given (and my responses as well, I've written without thinking too much. Just wrote whatever comes to my mind as soon as I see the word):
Casino: Las Vegas, The movie Hangover (I watched ALL the ones in the series and laughed my head off)
Bone: The book 'Lovely Bones' by Alice Seebold. The book still haunts me.
Painting: Gustav Klimt, Van Gogh, Rene Magritte, MOMA, New York and The National Galllery London (I have been here and I loved the experience)
Shocked: By the current Ukrainian situation and also by the Afghanistan situation
Quieter: It's always quieter when the hour is the darkest
Feed: Feed the cats! Feed the birds!
Song: Ah Doobe--Ah Doobe.. (as I watched Gehrayiyaan today)
Glass: People who live in glass houses should not throw stones
Boat: A coracle, and two fishermen I saw at the lake who I sktetched in my journal.
Junk: Junk journalling--something I learnt to do
Sheet: Crisp, Clean, Cotton sheets are the ones I prefer.
Knit: Something I do not have the patience for
Gift: The biggest gift you can give anyone is your time
Small: Small minds talk about other people, Great minds discuss ideas.
Title: 15 titles--all bestsellers, I am so grateful for them! :)
I hope you enjoyed my answers. If you are playing, I'd love to read your list too.
See you again tomorrow!
ps: I am doing a blog marathon (new post every day for 30 days. Today is day 18. While I am doing a blog marathon, Sourabh and Pratima are doing a comment marathon! A special shoutout to them for commenting on every post of mine. Thank you for that! I like to read comments, else it feels like I am talking to a wall!)
