An autumn morning,
in the state when not asleep
nor completely awake,
an idea appeared.


I need to make a creature,
my mind-embryo,
lay it next to my chest
and take care of it somehow.


The word mind-embryos comes form the Icelandic word hugarfóstur.
Hugarfóstur can be translated to brainchild in English that means; a product of your creative thinking and work.
The Icelandic dictionary says; hugarfóstur; something that someone imagines and has no place in reality, imagination.

My mind-embryos are fruits of the unification of my mind and hands, imagination that takes place in reality.
