Imagining A to Z: Y is for Yell and Be Silly

Y is for Yell and Be Silly

 At the center of this post is one word: verb.

I. Be a verb.
Be silly.

Out of that, imagination rises.

Buckminster Fuller:
I live on Earth at present,
and I don't know what I am.
I know that I am not a category.
I am not a thing -- a noun.
I seem to be a verb,
an evolutionary process --
an integral function of the universe.

II. Find a new way to walk.

When my son was a toddler, I can remember we would play and replay this video any number of times and dance crazy around the house and often out the door.  As we lived at that time on a main road I suspect we were quite the spectacle. It was liberating: the silliness, the dancing, the joy, the being verbs, not nouns.

III. Find another way.

IV. Make your walk into a poem.

V. Take a stroll.


  1. I'm stopping by via A to Z. What a fun post for today! I love the poems and of course the Monty Python bit.

    Now, I'm off to be a verb!

  2. Hi...I'm hopping over from the A to Z Challenge. Can you believe the challenge is almost over? Lovely blog...good luck with future posts!
