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 excercise, 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.

I say ... and you think ... ?
  1. Quit ::  abandon
  2. Solace ::  quiet
  3. Suggest ::  an idea
  4. Meteor ::  shoot
  5. Zombies ::  Simon
  6. Birds ::  eagles
  7. Canceled ::  ended
  8. Compatible ::  friendly
  9. Alarmed ::  by nothing
  10. Word game ::  challenge
Strange the words that appeared today for my first post in a new life.
