Writing Prompt #153 “Collage 20”

First let me apologize for my absence/delays I have been having computer problems. A replacement has been purchased but it’s not ready yet.

The quote “Tell me what it is you plan to do with your one wild and precious life.” Mary Oliver

What is the underlying theme? What’s the story here? The overarching emotions? If you like you can read them like panels in a comic strip it’s up to you how your interpret them. Literal or abstract are both perfectly acceptable.

On another note I have decided to continue with the collages. I have made several more and will continue to post them every other Sunday for the time being. If you have some great quote suggestions leave them in the comments below!

      • Well there is a program I use because I am not tech savvy and could never manage it on Gimp or PhotoShop


        Next I choose a quote and usually I stumble across them online, facebook and such but sometimes I look up specific writers or sometimes do more generic searches with a topic in mind. Hubbie also stumbles across quotes online that he shares with me, same for words (you can thank him for some of the wordle words).

        Once I have the quote it gives me more of a direction, a vibe, a mood that I can play with. In reading the quote sometimes I think of specific objects or colors. I might think blue and feather and then go off looking for individual images. I generally like to include at least one living thing in the image a plant, a person, an animal. Often I include people because they can emote so well. I also browse through free wallpapers and images and save ones I like and I can look through those saved images and see if anything speaks to me. It really is all about instincts, this feels right sort of thing. I don’t really know why exactly I choose certain images other than it makes sense to me on some unconscious, dream-like level. I think collage making is a lot like writing poetry.

        hugs and love
