I for one am very excited about this week’s topic. No offence to math or philosophy but I’m ready for a change of scenery. This week’s topic is sure to bring it.
Ideas. My husband is full of ideas. Wonderful ideas. Ideas for writing, ideas for my classroom. Ideas for poems (hands down the best birthday poem I’ve ever received), ideas for pranks.
He always has some idea brewing in his mind. It’s one of the things I love most about him.
I’m not at all gifted in the same way my husband is.
Ideas do not naturally come to me. Unfortunately ideas often pop into my brain at 3am in the morning and are nowhere to be found the next morning.
I can re-create almost anything (thank you Pinterest!), but the actual “idea forming” is difficult for me. My husband creates the ideas and I help see them through.
According to Wikipedia, an Idea is:
a concept or mental impression. Very often, ideas are construed as representational images; i.e. images of some object. In other contexts, ideas are taken to be concepts, although abstract concepts do not necessarily appear as images. Many philosophers consider ideas to be a fundamental ontological category of being. The capacity to create and understand the meaning of ideas is considered to be an essential and defining feature of human beings. In a popular sense, an idea arises in a reflex, spontaneous manner, even without thinking or serious reflection, for example, when we talk about the idea of a person or a place.
Here’s to discovering what ideas Dustin has for writing about ideas…
