You only get popcorn when....

... you add heat!

I made popcorn for lunch today (really healthy!). As I was waiting for the kernels to start popping it came to mind that the only way they would pop is if there was heat (microwave!)

Here's the wikipedia definition of popcorn:

Popcorn or popping corn is a type of corn which explodes from the kernel and puffs up when heated.

I was looking to find something positive in a rather negative situation. And came to the conclusion that I am the corn, there is a LOT of heat going on, and something is going to pop! But no... not bad popping. Great popping!!

Popping of thoughts, ideas, creations. Some of which I am working on this very moment! If there was no heat, there would be no popcorn... and I am thinking positive here... and embracing the heated situation to 'pop' something awesome!

In the heat of the moment... popping is the goal!

Funny, I was thinking about you and the idea of coal turning to diamonds (under pressure)was what came to mind... Keep going, my friend.
