Sunday Writing Prompt #242 “The House as Self”

Hallway Light

Your dream house is symbolic of the Self, while the rooms inside the house relate to various aspects of the Self and to the many facets of your personality. The attic refers to the mind, while the basement represents the subconscious.

For today’s prompt I want you to take a photo of an area inside of your living space and relate that area to some aspect of your inner self. Alternately you could draw the image or use google to locate a space that speaks to you, of you.

Don’t feel that you are confined to rooms, you can take photos of underneath the bathroom sink or anywhere else for that matter. If you are really ambitious you can explore multiple areas, even create an entire house!

      You’d love living on a narrow boat, everything fitted, compact and practical!

      Maybe that you are concise and prefer simplicity to ostentation and that you are a person of depth, with clear priorities
