Random Find Fish Eggs

"Caviar" a la Maison

Caviar a la Maison

Today I found a half emptied sack of colorful Easter candy stuffed willy-nilly in the back of a kitchen drawer along with a vast quantity of spilled catnip, a set of batteries, some elastic bands and who knows what else. Do you have a drawer like that?

I thought of the fish plate while delicately blowing the catnip flakes off of the gorgelicious candy. (Do I tell the resident sweet-toothed hordes where I found the candy?)(Do cats get sick from eating catnip-infused, stale, malted candies — or is the critter be too smart to eat it?)(Do other people find things like this often?)

Do random associations spark creative ideas for you?

Living in a rich environment with random and unexpected juxtapositions helps jump start creativity by breaking our ordinary daily thought patterns. What oddity did you find today?

That fish candy bowl reminds me of a fish bowl that I have, which reminds me of the fish dishwasher magnet, which makes me think about a thousand-dollar magnetic system to make water twice as wet. Why not just drink twice as much water?

I love making associations and connections like that. It definitely sparks my creativity! Love the fish eggs! :-) So, is that sort of like a bowl of caviar? hehe
