Discovery #12 Fifty Things

Note 50 things that stood out when you did one of the next activities: A visit to the library, an excursion to the greengrocer or a walk trough along your neighborhood.

(Blz 53)

”Before you can get conscious of the trusted, the trusted first needs to be disconcerted from the everydayness. We don’t need to assume that the object in dispute is a matter of course. How many times you encounter it, how unwitnessed or characterless it is. From now on it gets a mark with special on it.

– Bertold Brecht.’’

It was a fun assignment to do. I noticed things that I normally don’t think about during my walk in the neighborhood. It was also a moment of relaxation because I was walking without a purpose. I was just walking. I was looking around and paid attention to the noises around me. It was a fun assignment.
