Next to this house

I found a switch on the ground.

I like to keep it in my pocket, and imagine that when I flick it on and off something goes on or off someplace in the world.

A light bulb
A compliment
A lift button
An idea
A blink
A wink
A traffic light
A butterfly's wings
A glance
A tv screen

it makes me smile and wonder.

This is a lovely post.

In my office there is a solitary switch on a wall in a corridor. A Post It note above it says "Please do not flick this switch". I imagine that it powers a life support machine, many miles away.

the pub I work in has a switch on one of the walls that's like that, and every time i'm board I press it and imagine it dose something somewhere!

That house is tres cool - love it, and LOVE the flowers. So pretty. Maybe you're switching on/off someone's libido...?

that is wonderful thinking! it certainly brings a smile to think such a switch exists and i think we do have such a switch inside ourselves - i like to think it's our imagination =-)
