SurpriseOkay, think for a moment. Why would I title this post "Cartoon Irony"?

Because clearly the cartoon in this post is intended to make fun of surprising yourself by speaking without thinking, but sometimes it's a really good idea. Sometimes. 

And the reader who sent it spoke with me today about "Morning Pages" (stream of consciousness writing) and noted the surprising power in stream of consciousness speaking.

Not something to try at an important meeting, but you might surprise yourself with great ideas if you try it alone or with people who respect what you're doing. 

Go ahead. Surprise yourself.
