Journal Fodder 365 - Prompt #33
A new year and a new chapter in Journal Fodder 365. The first prompt in the chapter called 'symbolically speaking' is attributes.
The idea is to think about yourself as a product or a company - what sort of logo would you have? What symbols represent you?
I thought about what attributes I have and a tortoise was the thing that came to mind. I tend to plod rather than race, taking small steps and working at things steadily. I'm rather self-contained, pulling my head in when the world becomes too much and I feel a need to retreat. In terms of colours, too, the tortoise is fitting. I'm not a 'colourful' personality, flamboyant, or the life and soul of the party. No, the muted colours of tortoises and the subtle beauty of their shells, that's more like me. I can easily blend in to the background - and it's what I prefer :)
If you had to pick a symbol for yourself, what would it be?
