THE MEANING OF "IDEAS"

more participants at Jenny Matlock's Alphabet Thursday



Today is I - day and I had no idea about what I should write. Something interesting starting with an I.

What do you do when you run out of ideas ? Suddenly I had an idea ! Idea starts with I, so that's a great idea ! I will write about ideas !

In order not to write stupidities, I informed myself on Internet (which by the way starts with I too) what the word "Idea" really means, because I had no idea.

Therefore I googled "idea" and got the explanation !

"In the most narrow sense,
an idea is just whatever is before the mind when one

thinks"

I thought that is a great description, because indeed I have no idea what I have in mind before I think, and there is still the question when do I start to think ? Probably when I wake up and think that I need a cup of coffee. My mind cleared up, I stated that ideas are a really vast term.

You have no idea where to go on holidays, or you have no idea how to pay your bills. Which are two completely different subjects. I have a wonderful idea for my next painting. I also have an idea how to stop my cat from scratching the armchair and I have a good idea what to wear for my Yoga classes I will start today. Unfortunately I have no idea how to convince Mr. G. not to feed the cats each time they pronounce a little "meauw" ! My cats would protest and think that is a bad idea. I also don't have any idea how to commit a perfect murder.

From ideas how to change the world to ideas how to sort out your garbage, there is an enormous gap of possibilities. Today for example I have no idea what I will do this afternoon, this will probably come later when I have past the state of mind before I think.




just an idea

I suppose every idea starts with an idea of some sort, no?

Thanks for your comments, and your sense of humor this week. Sometimes the idea is the hardest part, right?

Loree said...

Every idea starts with a thought - or maybe we start thinking after we have an idea. I enjoyed your post :)

I have no idea why my brain has no ideas lol
I wonder what do fish think? Do they have ideas?

Kat said...

OOh I love this post! It made me laugh the witty way you have with ideas! You are sooo funny Gattina. Thanks, I enjoyed that.

I have lots of ideas. The hard thing is deciding which ones are good and which are downright stupid :)

Teresa said...

Such a fun post for the letter I! I truly enjoyed your ideas with my morning cup of coffee.

What a great idea of having no idea that somehow intrigingly spilled so intricately onto your blog as an impressive post!

Also, your ingeniousness and impeccable good humor through whimiscal illustrations was incredible, which caused an instantaneous giggle in me.

Thanks for stopping by my blog! ;)

Jenny said...

What an intriquing post about interesting ideas.

Sometimes my problem is I have too many ideas and I can't shut my head off!

Thanks for linking! I really enjoyed your take on this letter!
