Back into the routine--Friday means the RevGalBlogPals Friday Five meme. This week it's word association time!
Whirlwind: Tornado, probably much like the one in The Wizard of Oz. Brownish grey, spinning...dusty, too.
Foundation: Solid; cement, building. Interestingly enough, I don't automatically think of foundation in the sense of a non-profit benevolent-type organization, in spite of the fact that I have worked with them a lot.
Lightning: A flash of lightning, against a dark sky.
Den: A safe place, a cozy place; almost a nest, but underground.
Prey: Here's the odd thing--I think of a predator. What is up with my mind, that I think of the opposite? Say "prey," and I get a mental picture of a wolf or hawk.
Well, there's a sense of dynamicism there, for sure--of movement, witht he lightning and the whirlword--and even with foundation and den, there's the idea of settling in from movement, of coming to rest.
I can't explain the prey thing at all. And I'm not sure I want to know.
