Thinking Deep (part 1)

Open notebook with yellow pencil

Look. What do you see? Some people see power. Some see fame, and others see possibility. Someone might look at this image, and it will conjure up something amazing.

Or, you might look and say, “It’s an open notebook with a pencil laying on it.”

All these thoughts lead to different thoughts. They may bring up memories, images, or sounds.

This may be difficult to grasp, or even think about, so let’s put it this way:

You look at a toy dinosaur, and you remember the time your car smashed into a sculpture of a dinosaur. You remember that it happened on your vacation in Florida.

When you think of Florida, you think of the beach. Then you remember you buried yourself in the sand. Sand….You think of volleyball. Volleyball is played on the beach.

Then you remember playing volleyball in gym class. You remember you were on the red team, and that your best friends Jane and Jon were on the team.

You’re thinking about Jane and Jon and you remember when you used to play tag by your house. And you think of the sun shining down on you, and the yellow daises.

And then you think about flowers, and pollen. Then bees, then honey, then sugar, then cake, then cookies. Then cookie dough.

See what I mean? You went from thinking about dinosaurs, to cookie dough. The train of thought is very…unusual. Your memories can manipulate what you think about.

Part 2 of Deep Thinking is coming soon!
