New Kind of Bag

Hello Beautiful Thinkers,

I go dancing somewhat regularly so I’m familiar with the struggle of girls that want to bring a purse but don’t know what to do with it when they’re ready to dance. The ‘Dancing Bag’ that’s designed by Amalia Battaor is a cool solution to this problem. There is a wider selection on the website of course. They don’t go with everything but neither does most any other purse for a true fashionista. These were my favorites but check out her site for more ideas. Write a scene in which you create a new way to carry things. How can you improve the convenience of a certain type of bag? Is there something about the situation that requires the bag to be improved upon?

The Generosity of Humans

Hello Beautiful Thinkers,

Write a poem about the most generous thing that you’ve ever done or seen done in your life. (We’re not counting things you’ve seen on television and in movies here folks.) What do you feel inspires such generosity in the world? Are you or do you try to be a generous person on a regular basis? Do you receive such generosity in return? If not, does it make you question your own generosity?

Design of a Garden

Hello Beautiful Thinkers,

I came across a post that compiled a truly beautiful collection of gardens. I’m in love with every one of these photos. The thing that I admire is how the plant life and the architecture work together in these cases. Write a scene that has detailed descriptions of plants and architecture in that fit beautifully combination with each other. How does nature compliment the building it surrounds in this scene? Do the plants serve any sort of function beyond aesthetic? For example, the tree in the second image is support for the deck we see there.

A Person’s Character

Hello Beautiful Thinkers,

What attributes do you feel form your character? Do you think of yourself as particularly moral, intelligent, strong-willed, clear-headed, or any other number other things? Write a poem about the characteristics in yourself that you hold dear. Are there characteristics that you know you have that you struggle against? How do these go into forming you along with those that you embrace?

Physical Nerves

Hello Beautiful Thinkers,

I woke up with this “I Feel The Earth Move” by Carole King stuck in my head. I’ve never really felt this nervous about another person myself but I think it’s an interesting level of feeling that you can use for a character. Write about someone who makes your character feel such strong emotions that they are physically nervous. Are they feelings of affection like in the song or does your character feel something else so strongly. Perhaps he’s so angry he’s shaking with it.

Speaking to The Authority

Hello Beautiful Thinkers,

Is there any subject that you feel like you are an authority or expert in? Write a poem about this subject. What do you feel you have to teach others about it? How long have you been learning about it? What are the things that first attracted you to this subject? What continues keeps you interested in the subject?

The Passion in Beginnings

Hello Beautiful Thinkers,

There is a certain amount of excitement at the start of almost all new things. So many questions and so much potential comes with beginnings. Write a poem about the joy and passion of starting something new. Whether it is a life long habit, a short term goal, a new friendship, or the first page of a book think about the excitement in starting something. Capture that feeling.

Follow Your Bliss

Hello Beautiful Thinkers,

Write a poem about the idea of following bliss. It’s a fairly well known phrase but actually can be hard to live by unless you’re financially set. There is only a certain degree to which you can follow your bliss if you’re focused on more basic needs. Are you in a place where that is your main goal or do you have other more important goals in your life?

How to Stay Active

Hello Beautiful Thinkers,

As someone that struggles with motivation on a regular basis, I know how hard it is to stay active. Sometimes I wish that there was a clear cut step by step way to keep active and motivated. Unfortunately in my experience so far I haven’t found it. Write a poem about the ways that you motivate yourself to stay active. Do they always work or do you find that you have to try new methods as time goes on?

Big Hopes

Hello Beautiful Thinkers,

Write a poem about your biggest hope. Is it something that you work towards regularly to achieve or is it something that you wish for but don’t know how to pursue? What do you find attractive about this thing? How often does it feel like a real possibility in your life? Do you have faith that you’ll actually get this thing you hope for?
