Creativity Exercise: Give Me a Slogan

Tom took this photo of me on top of Whittaker Point in Arkansas. I love it. From this distance, and compared to the bluff, I almost look thin. :-)

I want to make this into a poster, because I'm modest like that. However, it clearly calls out for a quote, a slogan, some brilliant copy. You know, not cheesy, as my friend Kara says. But fun.

Your assignment? Provide the words to go with the photo. Be nice. And if you can't be nice, be amusing.

... and then I tripped over this one this morning on the Word-A-Day site:

"Oh to have a lodge in some vast wilderness. Where rumors of oppression and deceit, of unsuccessful and successful wars may never reach me anymore. -William Cowper, poet (1731-1800)

Oh, this is going to be fun! I'm putting that first quote on the blog Quick Quote while we wait to see what else comes in on the exercise. Re: the Cowper quote ... at our cabin, we either didn't have or didn't use Internet, radio, phones, TV, newspapers. I didn't know Charlie Sheen was drunk and naked and causing a stir. Sarah Palin didn't robo call me. No politicians, environmental disasters, crime. No war. It was wonderful.

Or, better yet ...

I'm Queen of My World!

After it's shaken or stirred, take your life on the rocks.

Until you spread your wings, you'll have no idea how far you can fly.

Deborah said...

Oh, ok, that might be in the cheesy catagory. But you're spreading your wings and all...

Jan said...

I love the whole wings thing ... and I hadn't even thought about it until you guys started posting!

And Queen of My World could go on my business cards too. :-)

Keep 'em coming!

It looks like your riding the back of a running bear.
