Unconscious Mutterings: Six

Dear Me,

It's a fine Sunday and the sun is shining so hot and bright!

The family is supposed to do the groceries right now but my little boy feels like napping. The food shopping is postponed until he's up and about! :)


To re-introduce this mind exercise:

Unconscious Mutterings.
Free association is described as a "psychonanalytic procedure in which a person is encouraged to give free rein to his or her thoughts and feelings, verbalizing whatever comes into the mind without monitoring its content." Over time, this technique is supposed to help bring forth repressed thoughts and feelings that the person can then work through to gain a better sense of self.

That's an admirable goal, but for the purposes of this exercise, we're just hoping to have a little fun with the technique. Each week I'll post ten words to which you can respond to with the first thing that comes to mind.

"Rules are, there are no rules." There are no right or wrong answers. Don't limit yourself to one word responses; just say everything that pops into your head. AND you don't have to have your words up on Sunday. Take all week if you want! Read the FAQ for more information.

  1. Soul :: searching

  2. Fold :: laundry (hehehe)

  3. Breakup :: separate

  4. Will :: gonna do

  5. Fond :: memories

  6. Powers :: sustains

  7. Ho-hum :: undecided

  8. Hustle :: competitive struggle

  9. Avenue :: Q?

  10. Tower :: skyscraper

Have time? Participate and let your mind do the muttering. :)


  1. Great words this week. Looks like everyone had a great deal of similar thoughts.

    Until next week . . .
