I was wondering today how would one describe an emotion if asked to do so.

Let’s take love for example, is it a warm fuzzy feeling, is it a color, is it logical, is it a picture?

How about hate? Is it a war, is it black, could it be positive, how would you draw it like?

And the list of emotion can go on. I think there are many people out there that poses a strong vocabulary to describe in words about each and every feeling out there.

But let’s get back to the visual part. Could someone draw an emotion? Let’s say faces and/or facial expressions aren’t allowed what picture would best suit an emotion?

Do this simple 2 step exercise with me: 

1) think of the first emotion that pops to mind; what is it?
2) think of the first thing that come to mind when you think of that emotion; what was it?

For example if i think about hate, the first thing that pops into my mind is war.
