The Name Game

The Name Game

The night before the show/reception at Once Upon A Paintbrush  Cassandra reminded me that I had not
titled the image of the tree and canoes. I still really had no title in my head other than “Waiting For Summer” which was a little close to the title for the heart in the stone wall image. It was getting late and we were getting a little silly and started batting around some caption ideas. I forgot to mention that the musicians were also at the gallery, doing a rehearsal for the next evening. Samantha, one of the musicians had several ideas, each of them we all thought were amusing. Everything was a little amusing to us at that point, and there was absolutely no alcohol involved. Suddenly it was suggested by someone that we just put sheet under the print and let the guests come up with titles during the show.

So away we went with that idea and it turned out to be lots of fun and a way for the guests
to be engaged with the image. The list grew to almost 2 pages during the show, with titles and the names of the namers...namers, yes it is a real word.

Here are the titles that everyone came up with, not in order and without the namers names. See if you can remember your own suggestion(s). Leave some comments if you can remember. 

You are also welcome to join the fun and come up with more titles!
Just put them in the comments.

End Of The Season
Adventure Awaits
Watchful Giant
Unknown Adventure
Let The Journey Begin
On Another Day
Peace Be With You
Fall Into Another Season
An Unseen Beauty
See You Next Spring
The Barren Voyage
Tucked In
Grey With Turquoise And More Grey
I Stand In Solitude And Wait
Winters Rest
Gone With The Leaves, And Some Canoes
Until I see You Again
Seasons End
No Cats
Under My Wings
A Season Not The Seasons
Ghosts Of Summers Past
I Dare You!
There Is Hope

Want To Canoe?
Darkness Falls
Season Of Rest

I wonder if some of you were thinking of titles when you got home and you were trying to go to sleep! If you were let me know.
