To Impress

Thanks to Jean-Baptiste who shared with me that his plan for the day would be impressing. Impressing as in printing. Printing as in making an impression.

Impressing as in leaving an impression

Impressing as in making an impression, be it good, bad or rather neutral on someone or something

Impressing rather than printing, as in the press of letters, the articles, the books and the words

Impressing as in Impressionism

and I realise how I had misunderstood Impressionism until today.

Mental Film Editing for Old-Fashioned Romantics and Mickey Mousing Lovers

This mental film editing exercise is best suited for wonderful old-fashioned romantics and Mickey Mousing Lovers; possibly also for Bikram Yoga addicts/ lovers.

Mickey Mouse

While having your morning coffee, put on your headphones and listen to the best of Liszt. It’s around an hour long.

While doing so, try to recall Mickey Moused scenes  from various melodramatic movies you’ve seen or made up. Mix it up with a bit of comedy and cartoon scenes (best if from Tom and Jerry or Mickey Mouse, as well as general chasing and slapstick falling scenes). Now try to perfectly “live synch” the scenes to the changing melodic sequences of Best of Liszt.

Once finished, start your usual daily routine.
