Where are all those great thoughts I had this morning while walking Sophie?
What happened to the amazing introspection while I watered the garden?
Where is that unexplored idea from late yesterday?
How do I go from a very active thought production brain to a blank incoherent state?
Knowing I needed to write and post something I read some great statements by some very deep thinkers to get my brain working. It worked, my thoughts were flowing. I opened my notebook, ready to write only to be interrupted and thrown off my thought trail by some mental distraction. Suddenly everything was gone, I lost my train of thought. Then I fell into the trap of thinking that I needed to write something and to post it. The more I thought about it the more topics and ideas floated across my mind. The trouble was nothing was sticking. none of my thoughts were forming into anything worth printing.
The result is this posting. Not my best posting or writing but feeling okay because I wrote and posted something. It would have been too easy to skip writing today but the personal disappointment would have been worse than posting a poorly written article.
I know I am not the only person this happens to but that doesn't make me feel any better.
