Audience Participation Monday

You are getting sleepy.....

You close your eyes and begin to imagine....

Listen only to the calming sound of my voice (you'll have to imagine it; my lungs are still full of yellow gunk from last week)....

Regress into the tucked-away recesses of your mind....



Today's APM is a take-home assignment (if you wish, just visit the comments section and leave a link) asking you to do some positive visualization.

I know, I know, you're wondering what sort of crystal-magic, drippy-hippy, new-age, pseudo-spiritual mumbo-jumbo this is. But I seriously read it in another book--not a Deepak Chopra book, either. I am not making this one up.

Here's what I want you to do: Close your eyes. Then imagine the best...

Wait, wait, wait. Open your eyes again. You need to read the rest of the directions. Then you can close them.

After you close your eyes, reach ahead into the future. Go on a little mental time-travel trip, and imagine a perfect day, one that you would want to do again, and again, and again. Like if you got stuck in that movie Groundhog Day, which day would you not mind so much having to relive over and over. Start in the morning and continue all the way to the evening and describe this perfect day. The only caveat is that it has to be a normal day--no winning the lottery or getting deified or anything like that.

Because I expect many people to have a lot to say, you may write your response on your own blog and post a link on the participants section for us to follow. I will put mine in a separate post.

Everybody clear? Ladies and Gentlemen, start your engines!

How fun, Erin! I'll start tomorrow.

Yours was brilliant, by the way.

In all honesty, I would take Erin's perfect day. To that I would add working on my PhD in some sort of Classics/Literature/Religion combination. Somewhere in there I would be pregnant or have just had another baby.
