I should be getting ready to leave the house, but saw today DS106 daily create and could not resist. Also, it was submitted by Anna Cow who is an awesome DS106 open participant – who make moo art!

This one is just for you, Anny! 

Why could I not resist? This type of activity harks back to the many surrealist games I use in my laughter therapy workshops. I love them. 


So what did I do? Just as instructed with a little extra. I followed the steps in the daily create with the first newspaper that popped out of my basket.

Carefully cut, mix up words, take them out one at a time and voila! your poem. The little extra? I put them into recite this and tried to make senseless words make sense without altering the order. Only in DS106. Does you MOOC do that?

I needed something to do today to remind me of the importance of making time for those we care about and for what we are passionate about. Words and people are right up there for me, with a few animated gifs thrown in perhaps. But now those are the work of gifadog.

Here is the daily create for today:


Now over to you, Anny. I what ways does this resemble the DS106 shrink?
