i was sitting at my desk minding my own business, trying to stay out of trouble quite frankly, but trouble just has a way of walking through my door. it’s always been that way really, since as far back as i can remember. i’ve been on the short end of the stick it seems, trying to do right but always ending up wrong. today was no different. it was pouring outside, so hard it started pouring in, and as i mopped off my desk with saturday’s herald i heard someone call my name from across the room.
that sultry voice left me frozen in my tracks. my pulse raced. i began to sweat. she sauntered over in my direction, her heels clicking and clacking against my floor as if she were hammering nails into my coffin. i felt her behind me, her breath, a burning chill at the back of my neck. she whispered in my ear…”i’ve got another assignment for you…”
adventure noir assignment:
YOU, dear adventure seeker, are ON assignment this week. grab your fedora and trench coat and head out into the world “adventure noir” style. whether you’re “hired” by a melodramatic dame in an attempt to track down her wandering lover, or following your intuition/”hunch” by staking out some various local establishment…uncover a mystery! eavesdrop on conversations, make observations behind lampposts, say things like “slick” and “babe” and “kid”. create some fictional drama or uncover some truth and as always, share your adventure noir adventures with us…
“You wish to have The curse reversed?
I’ll need a certain Potion first.
Go to the wood and bring me back:
One: the cow as white as milk,
Two: the cape as red as blood,
Three: the hair as yellow as corn,
Four: the slipper as pure as gold.”
my skin is the rind of a watermelon…
the world is your mirror and there are reflections of yourself everywhere.
your assignment this week is to find yourself and build yourself out of your surroundings. see your eyes in a bowl full of blueberries or walnuts. find you teeth at the piano or your hair in a bale of hay. capture images of “yourself” and write “why”. why are your teeth the piano keys? what makes you see your eyes in a bowl full of walnuts?
pick a focus: your face, your arm, your circulatory system, or your body as a whole. build yourself.
share “yourself” with us at email@example.com
about this time every year the air begins to change and an energetic shift becomes more noticeable. daylight lasts longer, birds chirp more brightly, and the flowers begin to poke their little heads out of the earth. somewhere in a dark cave, a bear is rubbing his eyes and yawning a great big gigantic yawn of awakening.
spring is a time of rebirth and renewal. a fresh start. a clean slate. a clearing away of the old and a shedding of the unnecessary.
this week adventureclubinteractive invites you to participate in spring cleaning and spring cleansing! allow yourself to let go of somethings that you no longer need in order to make space for new beginnings. clear the clutter off of your bed or desk, donate your unused clothes and items. this may be the perfect time to release old habits that are holding you back. quit eating junk food or smoking. begin a daily meditation practice or participate in a juice cleanse for a few days to recharge your system.
document your cleaning/cleansing experiences and share them with us! include images/video/testimonials and remember to submit your masterpieces for the adventureclubinteractive weekly assignment via email by sunday april 7th: firstname.lastname@example.org.
