get a pen and paper.

or open up a new document/app/list.
I'll wait for you.

now answer these questions. (write your first response, your first image, thought, sensation. There are no wrong answers.)

1. What does a wish look like?
2. What colour is happiness?
3. What does purple look like?
4. What does your self-image sound like?
5. What colour is today?
6. What does a rainbow feel like?
7. What colour is the smell of your favourite perfume?
8. What colour is your favourite song?
9. What does a cloud sound like?
10. What is the weight of your anger?
11. what is the shape of your imagination?

I answered them on my sisters blog, and they made me smile, and wonder. They were part of a series of questions to make you think differently about creattivity, from an early-childhood conference she attended. Thanks for sharing Mim!


These are my answers;

1.a bubble floating in the sky
2. colours reflected on a lake
3. a shiny eggplant
4. a symphony; sometimes swelling strings and sometimes discordant cacophony
5. crisp sky blue, cool and productive
6. soft and fuzzy. Like a Care Bear.
7. soft muted yellow (CK one)
8. like a black and white movie (Yann Tiersen-Sur Le Fil)
9. depends on the type of cloud. Rain clouds sound like a double bass. Wispy clouds sound like soft violin.
10. a lead ball, like a shot put in my chest
11. a piece of string on a white background that moves constantly into different shapes, like a cookie cutter.

If you post your answers, please leave a comment so I can pop over and see!
