Chain of nonsense or window into the mind?

August 2, 2015

Let’s have a go at making a chain of words – not a story, a poem or a song, but a chain of words that are linked by association, meaning and influence. So, as far as I can, let’s turn off Mr conscious mind and see what turns-up. I’ve no doubt that some of these words, when I read them, will not associate, they will simply serve to trigger the next words to come into being. Random nonsense? Partly yes, but also a nice little port hole into the process of memory, mind and thought. Let’s have a go…
