Transport...what takes you away from your reality, for awhile, a temporary escape?! First thing that comes to my mind is "Beam me up Scotty" an order from James T. Kirk or Spock.
Next, I think of the song "Take me away a secret place....."
I've got a pocket pocket full of sunshine...by Natasha Bedingfield.
My top 3 thoughts of transporting are: I love nature, being outside walking . I prefer a nature trail or the loop around my old neighborhood, which had a warf and view of the
Second thought is a bookstore/coffee shop/library...anything to do with books. Books are a treasure trove of ideas, there are quotes, something for everyone. The smell of old books as caffeine tickles my brain.
Third thought would be movies. I practically grew up in a movie theatre. The scent of popcorn and the opening image of the MGM Lion logo , Paramount's Mt, Columbia's Torch Lady,and 20th Century Fox, etc. I loved the logos, but it was the musical score that set the anticipation of the main feature. I can see my Dad running the projector and my Mom telling me memories of how many movies they have seen. They met at a movie theatre. She was the concession stand girl; he was the projectionist. I later, worked there at the ticket booth, while they were running a Drive-In Theater, as their 2nd income. I think it was more of a hobby!
So, what is your pocketful of sunshine...these memories take me back to all things creative. I am always jotting down ideas, quotes in the bookstore/library setting. Walking for me is moving meditation. I get ideas or something that is blocked clears, or i take my camera and snap photos. Movies, well, the setting, the costumes, the look of the film, the inspiration of it, set design and
dialogue. These things all get the creative juices flowing and ideas to sprout.
I am scatterbrained, I have so many ideas, my problem at the moment, is to learn the technique that needs to be applied to the project or perhaps the correct glue. I am alright at multi-tasking other things, but my ideas need a bit more breathing space.
A pocketful of sunshine is a great way to deal with cabin fever on a winter's day(ought oh, now I have that California Dreaming song playing in my head).
