Six Impossible Things

…before breakfast!

“Alice laughed: “There’s no use trying,” she said; “one can’t believe impossible things.” “I daresay you haven’t had much practice,” said the Queen. “When I was younger, I always did it for half an hour a day. Why, sometimes I’ve believed as many as six impossible things before breakfast.”
Through the Looking Glass, by Lewis Carroll

What if the message or essence behind the Queen’s remark is by believing in the impossible the possible can be created. What if the impossible became possible?

What is your practice for dreaming up the impossible? Take it from the Queen and give it a try, believe six impossible things before breakfast. If you do not eat breakfast, then in your first waking hour. It allows you as a creator to truly have great fun and engage your curiosity, imagination and creativity.

Flower sketch #15     Color Drawing - Flower
When sketching, sometimes I have an idea what the drawing is about and how all the parts work. Other times the ideas do not come until I add color. Which is what happened with this flower. After the color the ideas came.

  • What if this flower was a large interactive piano-xylophone-like musical instrument in a park, playground, botanical garden, cityscape.
  • What if the petals changed color schemes as the stamen-like parts took in vibrations from nearby sound. Bold color with loud sound and pastel color with soft sound.
  • What if it was so large it floated and hovered over a house or village as an energy station.
  • What if each circular layer rotated in opposite directions.
  • What if the flower could transform itself into a butterfly type flying insect.
  • What if it was a flower by day and a going out jacket or dress by night.

OK, so there are my six impossible things.

Your turn!
