Free Association with Luna Mina

Here's a little something I just found while hopping the list over at IComLeavWe...
This cool blogger from Virginia posts a list of words and we're to fill in what comes to mind.
Here's what she has to say about the exercise:

Unconscious Mutterings

Free association is described as a "psychonanalytic procedure in which a person is encouraged to give free rein to his or her thoughts and feelings, verbalizing whatever comes into the mind without monitoring its content." Over time, this technique is supposed to help bring forth repressed thoughts and feelings that the person can then work through to gain a better sense of self.
That's an admirable goal, but for the purposes of this excercise, we're just hoping to have a little fun with the technique. Each week I'll post ten words to which you can respond to with the first thing that comes to mind.
"Rules are, there are no rules." There are no right or wrong answers. Don't limit yourself to one word responses; just say everything that pops into your head. AND you don't have to have your words up on Sunday. Take all week if you want! Read the FAQ for more information.

This is the kind of thing I cannot resist. So let's see... (my words in bold):
  1. Massage :: Getting the wee ones to walk on my back
  2. Financial advice :: Leveraging is dangerous
  3. Guide :: 'Off the Beaten Track' in China
  4. Packing :: Heat
  5. Trombone :: Sliderule
  6. Water cooler :: Big bubble
  7. Delivery :: Placenta
  8. Smoke :: Great name for a cat
  9. Cane :: Sugarcane in Vietnam
  10. Suitcase :: Marooned cruise ship passengers

Oh, wait. That wasn't the latest set. Here's this week's ten:

  1. Yellow and green :: Caterpillar
  2. Smiles :: Clouds parting
  3. Appear :: Reflection of a face in water
  4. Clouds :: Atlas
  5. Lucy :: I Am Sam
  6. Dream :: Coltrane
  7. Picture :: Distilled experience
  8. Station :: Terrapin
  9. Glass :: Is a liquid
  10. Kaleidoscope :: Diggeridoo

Fun! Now I wish I had a shrink on hand to tell me what my responses say about me. What do you think? Which pair is most compelling to you?
