DAY 2: VISION WALL

VISIONBOARD2014


A dream is your creative vision for your life in the future. You must break out of your current comfort zone and become comfortable with the unfamiliar and the unknown.
~Denis Waitley

What is a vision wall?

A vision wall is similar to the collages we made as children. Some call them a dream board, magic wall, cluster wall, inspiration wall, mood board, even a treasure map. Find an unused wall in your house, and use it the way it is or hang a magnetic white board or a cork board. For our purpose, a vision wall is like journaling. Brainstorm and fill the vision board with things related to your project or goal. Tap into your imagination using pictures, quotes, and the randomness of the day by using sticky notes. Organize and visualize any project. Create characters, setting, plots. After you’ve had time to look at it, make adjustments, look for patterns, find the commonality within the board. You’ll find there’s no limit to your creative mind.

If you aren’t comfortable putting your ideas on a wall for everyone to see, you can use regular paper, notebooks, or even Pinterest. However, there’s something fun about physically interacting with the vision wall, to enjoy looking at your word art, and to add and/or subtract from it the old fashioned way, with pen, paper, scissors.

Whichever way you choose to create your vision board, have fun with the process. There’s no right or wrong way, only your way.

DAILY JOURNALS:
Look at the fall season, the leaves turning red-orange, the crisp morning air, changes are all around. What do you see? Pick an idea and write about it.

POEM

Moments of Vision

That mirror
Which makes of men a transparency,
Who holds that mirror
And bids us such a breast-bare spectacle see
Of you and me?

That mirror
Whose magic penetrates like a dart,
Who lifts that mirror
And throws our mind back on us, and our heart,
until we start?

That mirror
Works well in these night hours of ache;
Why in that mirror
Are tincts we never see ourselves once take
When the world is awake?

That mirror
Can test each mortal when unaware;
Yea, that strange mirror
May catch his last thoughts, whole life foul or fair,
Glassing it — where?
~Thomas Hardy (1840-1928)

  1. Juliet, I love the idea of a “vision wall.” I do remember hearing about something like this, who knows when, but I had. I’m happy you put it up as a reminder because, when I finally get around to beginning the plotting, etc. for my novel series, this is the type thing that I think might make it easy to see connections and flow. Thank you! 😀
