Thinking outside the box....Literally? Figuratively?
August's Focus on life theme is "Outside." And this week's prompt is "Outside the Box."
One of my least favorite Late 20th Century Catch Phrases. "Thinking Outside the Box." Usually meant that the supervisor could not think of a solution to your problem, and you were just going to have to "Think Outside the Box" to solve it.
But in this context, it can mean...anything. I looked through some recent shots and came up with these.
An actual box. These Bluebird Boxes contributed to the return of New York State's Official State Bird from near extinction.
Plants growing in a creative place, the sawed-off
"stump" of a power pole.
My favorite farm market was giving away potatoes. They happened to be purple. Viola! Purple potato salad. Dressed with lemon juice and olive oil.
So these are the pictures I chose because they illustrate something whether thought out, or accidentally; ending up out of the box.
What else can be said to be "Out of the Box?"
