Chapter 31 — Not Kansas | October 27, 2012

So I have a friend who’s been pretty down lately.  I really want to cheer them up, but there’s a lot in their lives I can’t — and shouldn’t control.  Lots of people are putting too much pressure on them.  Still, I can tell they’re really down.  So, that’s the problem I will be tacking for this thinkertoy.

I went along with the Dakotas journey printed in the book, allowing myself to relax back and just record the images.

They were: grey damp mine buffalo sharp bleh bright crisp

On the paper: Falling down again.

The overall impression of the scene was very lonely, (and it also strongly resembled a class trip I had taken to Catalina island, but that’s a bit beside the point).  While I’m normally the more passive person in our social interactions — the shy introvert that I am — I should make more of an effort to reach out.  Text em funny things that happen during the day.  Maybe cook them some dinner sometime — who doesn’t like getting free food?

Overall I found this thinkertoy pretty silly.  The conclusion I reached admittedly isn’t anything earth shattering, but I actually found the image of the mine more interesting from an artistic standpoint.  Maybe I’ll draw it sometime.
