“An idea that is developed and put into action is more important than an idea that exists only as an idea.”
Ideas are funny. They pop up and drift away in an instant. Mom captures them as best she can by typing them into her phone. At writing time, if she’s not in the middle of a piece of work, she checks that phone list and picks an idea or two to start working on. She mixes and matches and puts things together to make a fun bundle-up of ideas. She gets ideas from being around kids, listening to conversations, looking at blogs, watching TV, reading picture books, walking around the complex, and taking me to the park.
I get a lot of ideas, too. Some of my favorites are…
Kill my toy monkey who’s been asking for it lately.
I would like to remember my ideas, but I don’t have a phone to list them. Plus Mom says the word, “Forget it” a lot, so I guess she doesn’t want me to remember them in a list like hers. I get my ideas from snoozing,
and walking in the park.
Buddha has the right idea about ideas. Having them is just the beginning. The fun comes when you put them into action.
