By popular demand…..another day of word association! Tomorrow we’ll mix it up a little with fun family history project….
Remember the map you made of your childhood classroom? Let’s skip ahead to your teenage years. Can you remember what your bedroom looked like? What did you have hanging on the walls? What kind of bedding did you have? Maybe you had shag carpeting or cold hardwood floors. Did you share a room with a sibling?
Sometimes just one word can cause our mind to venture way back into it’s archives and bring out a memory or a feeling from the past. As you read each of the words in today’s prompt, what comes to mind? For example if I read or hear the word Mustang….you might think of a car, or a horse or a football team……the word association you have is unique to your memories and experience:
Dad used to take me to Joe’s Mustang to buy crickets for fishing. The gas station had a huge rust colored horse that looked as if it were rearing up and out of the sign. I looked forward to the can of Country Time Lemonade Dad would buy me as a special treat. I remember the smell of gasoline and motor oil mixed with the pungent smell of catfish bait.
