The Ragtag prompt today, IMAGE, is easy enough for me to respond to, as I often use images for my blog posts. In my youth we called them pictures but times have changed and so must I.
As readers here will have seen, I’m fond of making “posters” to use as inspirational blog posts. I pick an image from Pixabay, like this one by Daniel Roberts, pull it up on Paint 3D, choose a font, type in a verse like this haiku — and there you are!
Today’s Ragtag Daily Prompt is PAREIDIOLIA, the gift of picturing some design in ink squiggles, random dots, wallpaper flowers, clouds and such.
Or, as the Oxford Dictionary says: The perception of apparently significant patterns or recognizable images, especially faces, in random or accidental arrangements of shapes and lines.
This word comes from the German Pareidolien, descended from the Greek combo of para, beside or adjacent to, plus eidōlon, an image.
Here’s my little Paint3D-crafted example. However, if you’re one of those who can’t see the colour green, this will make no sense. (Image by JeonSang-O — Pixabay.) What picture can you imagine in this field of clover?
