In the Middle of a Jar of Berries

We are in the middle of our term to submit the assignment 2, the frontline.

For me it was a great experience to get to the bottom of an issue in my particular vision. It is an experience of empowerment. We all see reality from a point of view, however,how many have the opportunity to share that vision? Perhaps, 10 days away from deadline, you do not know yet how to deal with this issue that you love. The hours goes bye and you feel that anguish again. You perhaps think it should be quite good and impressive. You want to make a difference with your writing, but you do not know where to start.

There is a metaphor that is very useful to me in those moments that I feel I have a great topic to write about but I do not know how to approach the topic: I imagine I'm in the middle of a large jar of raspberries: How are raspberries? How are those that are near and far from me? How do I feel them in contact with me? What happens if I take one? How does my foot feel at the bottom of the jar? How the world looks through the glass? What would other people see if they had to live through the jar of raspberries? Now, replace the raspberries for the issue you want to write about and make yourself the same questions. Something you will get and that will help you to set your approach.

Xoxo for you all
