Corner View- "Impression"

Today's CV theme is "Impression". I read all of the posts before writing mine, just to see what everyone else's take on it was. Because, you know, the word Impression has many meanings. For instance, there's an impression that you make when you bury something into a soft material, like clay or sand....






Then there's an impression, like one is trying to give a hint of something, as in Impressionist art...that something might herald the arrival or departure of something, like a season for instance...




...or of something one is making....




There is impression as in creating a strong effect on the intellect, emotions or conscience, as in "This book made a real impression on my life", or, "That song created quite an impression on my heart".

Impression can mean a vague remembrance, notion or belief of an event or occurrence, as in, "When I was little, I get the impression that I liked to play in the sprinkler a lot, often in the buff".( The memory becomes a little less vague when there are snapshots to prove it!)

Then there is "making a good impression". I was recently accused of only being interested in making a lot of money (HA!) and impressing my friends. To that I say, true friends don't need impressing. If you have to impress them, they aren't really your friends. Aren't you impressed? : 0)

I still like to run naked through the sprinkler, but when I do, my uptight neighors call the police :-)
