This is an imaginery journey down a road. Take in the sights, sounds and colours, just like a video camera recording all that lies surrounding you. Survey the scene, noticing whatis far off in the distance, the background surrounds, the weather, the season and a total image of what you view. Feel the ground beneath your feet. Try to visualize it as a picture on a canvas, but with movement, sound, colour and emotion. You are the surveyor on this journey. Draw your journey on paper if you desire, as it often shows clearer results, then attach your drawing via snapshot or scan to your post. Q1. What colour is the road? -Mottled grey Q2. What texture is the road? -gravel... like pea gravel Q3. How solid is the road? -solid foundation, but slippery/slidey from the gravel You continue walking and come to a river that must be crossed. There before you is the river; the size and depth are up to you. You cannot go around it but must imagine a way to cross it. Whatever you need to cross the river is already within your mind, just imagine seeing yourself do it. Q4. How do you cross the river? -a canoe Q5. What does the water look like? - midnight blue... almost black at first glance Q6. How fast is the water current? - there is none. It is like glass on the surface Q7. Is there anything in the water? If so, what? - there is. lots of things like water mocassin snakes and water plants and eels, but they are below the surface. I can't see them but I know they are there. You have crossed the river and continue walking. You come to a house. Take a good look at the house. Notice the impression it makes on you. Q8. What colour is the house? - peach/pink stucco Q9. What condition is the house in? - very good condition... almost pristine Q10. Does anyone live in the house? If so, who? - An elderly native american woman. Grey shot through her long thick ponytail. Weathered face, but calm wise eyes. She's wearing a gingham apron. I have no idea who she is. We continue forward in our minds journey and come to an open field. A cup is on the ground, and we stop to examine it. The cup can be of any size, shape, colour and description. Focus on it's look, condition and contents. Q11. What colour is the cup? - Silver (pewter actually... it's made of metal) Q12. What condition is the cup in? - Dented, scarred, used. Still usable but full of "use and character" Q13. Is there anything in the cup? If so, what? - Sediment. Like windblown dirt inside You continue walking down the road and come to something blocking your path. It stops you in your tracks and prevents you from going forward. This is an obstacle. Q14. What is the obstacle, and please describe it in detail? - Huge redwood tree lying across the road. I mean huge. Like, you can't just scale it without a ladder or climbing gear. Q15. What do you see beyond the obstacle? - just the road. pea-gravel road. With gorgeous forest on either side of the road... a pale blue sky, but front and center is the road as far as my eyes can see.
