I've heard of pyschological techniques like free association
where you simply hold pen to paper and write the words that come into your head.
There are a host of variants in that line of thought (I've seen one in an Agatha Christie
novel too), all aiming to uncover the dark secrets of the subconscious.
I just found it to be an interesting excuse for a blog post, I've got all these things to say
but they're not all crystallized yet. Also, random terms, thoughts and phrases swirl as
the jetsam-flotsam of my mind. So here goes an attempt at a random swipe of a spoon in that
chop-suey which yielded:
Blankness, writer's block, marriages, upper berths, colds, pulmonary is the lung word, lane regulators,
matricide, memento, instant messenging, solitude, loneliness, sterling silver, excuses in success, Stephen
Fleming, juvenile diabetes, betrayal, confusion, Hindu Rashtra, invasion, parties, psychological demons,
tamil serials, sore losers, ignorance & indifference, stoicism, workability, the Ultimate answer,
no feedback here, too much feedback there, new scooters, bugging relatives, Google searches,
Mysore pak, family gossip, corpulence, yellow & orange, blatherskite wisenheimer, rain affection,
code words, shortcut to my connection, pretty faces, convention-breaking, 10 o'clock shows,
reunions, happy Saturday afternoons, atrophied muscles, organized religion, richard attenborough,
prudence cowley, dubashi, film appreciation, mise-en-scene, turncoat debate, damn gentle reminders,
breathing exercises, recalcitrant nieces & unconcerned nephews...
Uff! Enough for the day!
