writing the senses
(instructions to students in my morning class)
On your way to this classroom this morning (walking, driving, or biking),
think of something you saw from the corner of your eye that, for a moment,
caught your attention. What did you see? What is its name? color? location?
size? texture? smell? How did it make you feel?
If everything is alive and interconnected,imagine that this object you saw
is trying to communicate with you, wants to say something to engage you
further but you were rushing and had no time. If you had stopped to pay attention,
how would the conversation look like? Transcribe the conversation.
