I’ve heard of these referred as “Chinese Portrait”, but I can’t find the historical relevance or etymology which makes me think that it doesn’t come from Chinese ancestry at all. Does anyone know? Please share your sources?
The idea of it, however, is sound.
After the prompt, answer from your heart, or, as I like to say, let your fingers do the walking.
But even I don’t always work that way. With some of these, like the seven wonders of the world – I read up on it, then answered. Others, like my favourite meal, I couldn’t remember the word for it – I always think, chicken tikka masala when my favourite food is actually massaman.
Either way, the because, description, or explanation often leapt from the fingers once the single item was written.
And then I knew it was true.
And sometimes I didn’t write any explanation at all.
Which is also true.
So, this is me. If I were something else.
I’d love to hear your versions, too – feel free to copy the prompts – or make new ones – and fill in your own versions.
