THE BRIGHT IDEA
IS IT THAT THE GREAT IDEA IS A LIGHTNING STRIKE OR A BUILDING STORM?
I was contemplating — the sequence of brilliant ideas — how they emerge, the sparking of them.
Is it the storm that slowing builds an electrical charge, or could it be the sudden strike of a bolt from the blue. Perhaps both.
As I meditate on ideation, I’m seeing that the idea(l) of the sparkling of ideas might come from unconscious circling of challenges, the mind and memory working on the character of a foundational puzzlement — and from there, the storming charge begins to emerge.
It might start as a hint, a tinting change of coloration, the atmosphere changes, and something inspiring surges through the clarity of the normal to reveal something more potent. As the lightning storm comes, you can smell it in the air — and you can feel it in your skin; bristling with ideas, crackling with lightning. Electricity, glistening illumination.
Then the idea comes — boom, the flash of light; and for that instant, everything is different.
BOOM: lightning lightens.
