(*) Monday madness

Name 3 things....

1....your ideal salad has on it. Tasty Edam cheese, cherry tomatos, snow peas. do religiously in the morning. Fart in bed (!!), go to the loo, boil the kettle. look forward to doing in your spare time. Reading a novel or auto/biography, surfing, long walks in the setting sunshine.'ve never done before, but think you will at some point in your life. Watch a sunset over the ocean, get some of my poetry and/or fiction published, hmmmm..... love to do while on vacation. Lay on a deserted beach, go 2nd-hand book shopping, watch the sunrise/set. took pictures of in the last month. damn - now, if I had my camera still... have to do before the end of the day. Check the doors are locked, go to the toilet, look at the photos of my three wonderful sons and say goodnight to them. like about your best friend. They listen to me in good times and not so good, they appreciate me, they forgive and forget.

Free association is described as a "psychonanalytic procedure in which a person is encouraged to give free rein to his or her thoughts and feelings, verbalizing whatever comes into the mind without monitoring its content." Over time, this technique is supposed to help bring forth repressed thoughts and feelings that the person can then work through to gain a better sense of self.

That's an admirable goal, but for the purposes of this excercise, we're just hoping to have a little fun with the technique. Each week I'll post ten words to which you can respond to with the first thing that comes to mind.

"Rules are, there are no rules." There are no right or wrong answers. Don't limit yourself to one word responses; just say everything that pops into your head. AND you don't have to have your words up on Sunday. Take all week if you want!
