Sunday Scribblings: ideas

little black books with elastic bands
full of unhatched eggs
pull one out and roll it around
warm it up in my hands
watch for an opening
listen for a peep
start to pick at an edge
if nothing is happening
if no one's at home
let it sit, give it time to expand

What a great description of you moleskine notebook - love the thought of ideas as "little unhatched eggs" rolling around between the covers!

Oh, that's just wonderful! "Unhatched eggs"... "listen for a peep"...
A great analogy!

This is what we should do with all our ideas. Great post.

wonderfully written, i love how you didn't need many words to express your "idea" so well.
