Kate and her friend Ann fly home today, after a month in Europe. Yay! Reason enough for a fun creativity exercise.
During their time overseas, Kate and Ann lived on a street named Jerichausgade in Copenhagen; their flat in Berlin was on lichtenrader. (If you are familiar with the lichtenrader area, don't tell me about it. I get the feeling I would have retroactive heart palpitations.)
Streets in my life have included: 63rd, Quincy, Holmes, Seminole, 47th, Price and the lyrical,historical Daniel Boone Road. When we were kids and went to look at the house on Daniel Boone, we made the address into a song. Sang it as part of our effort to convince the folks to buy the house. "87-47-Daniel-Boone-Road! 87-47-Daniel-Boone-Road!"
Hey -- don't laugh. The magical incantation worked. Mom and Dad bought the house.
Today's exercise: Pretend you can name your street. Choose your address. Go!
