Oh The Things They Will Say.....Picture It
Almost immediately I began to hear a few ooohs and aaahs in the group and some friends even started to describe the cat they imagined out loud. But one friend was having a little trouble. He just couldn't see a cat in his mind. He said he had no picture frame. And he was starting to get frustrated. Friends began to help him. "Come on...you can do it....see the cat....c-a-t....see the letters?
I. just knew she had a solution to our friend's dilemma and she announced, "It's easy. Just roll your eyes backwards in your head and you can see it!"
That's when my lesson on Imagery turned into something I had not expected. And we spent the next five minutes trying to roll our eyes backwards in our head.
Now that was a sight. I'll bet you can picture it.
