Michael asks us to explore deserted lanes in mind spaces – finding something forgotten.
I think about
- Lost keys and other items found while moving house
- My husband scanning through his parents’ personal belongings years after they passed away, and revisiting memories associated with those articles
- Widows telling me stories about how they asked their late husband to help with something, and just landed on the object of search
- A school reunion where we talk about days gone by
- Walking through a stretch where concrete towers have replaced the greenery
- Finding a cart with candy or ice-lollies we enjoyed in school
I think about using one of these as a theme, and then lightning strikes –
The most valued find in a lifetime is FORGOTTEN POTENTIAL.
I used to write in my student days, and then lost my creativity in drafting the perfect email or business report. It felt great to come back to it.
I decorated Amazon delivery boxes with decoupage art for storing kitchen napkins, and remembered that I enjoyed craft lessons in school.
I think I should try shaking a leg, despite the excess weight I carry, and rediscover my potential to dance.
The question that will haunt me this week is
“What did I do earlier, that I’ve stopped doing now?’
