I have an Easter decoration that always makes me laugh – a plaque with a bunny being hatched from an egg. It’s an absurd combination, yet the symbols of bunnies and eggs are inextricably linked for the commercial portion of this holiday. There are many facets of Easter that make no sense: rabbits with baskets, coloring and hunting for eggs, chocolate rabbits and jelly beans – but they have been so ingrained into our culture that we don’t pay much attention to the implausibility of them.
Embrace that spirit of creativity today to allow yourself to have free-flowing associations with disjointed concepts. Link your own version of rabbits and eggs to create a new idea for work or for family entertainment.
Hide spice jars around your house instead of eggs. Put your books in the cupboard and plates on the bookshelf. Mix two unexpected ingredients to make a new dish. Wear polka dots and plaid together. Intermix carrots and petunias next to each other in your front landscaping.
Easter symbolizes a new beginning. Use the fresh start to infuse a burst of creativity into your world.
