I Had Something to Say...I wish I could remember what!
|I ran into this flower every time|
I walked to my car...I never
forgot to water it. But, out of sight
out of mind is how I really
work! How about you?
It works the same way with writing. Thoughts about important things come to me in the shower and leave me as soon as I am dry. If I could only remember one thing I would be happy. But, it seems, the creative process works that way. I am trying to gather them up this morning.
Oh, here is one:
Have you noticed that old people that were complaining about teens on their cell phones and pads texting in public or at the table are the ones texting in public and at the table? Is there a lesson to be learned here? I don't know. You tell me.
I have decided that planting flowers where the sprinkler system does not water does not work out. I always have good intentions. I try to fill in that small dry spot but then promptly forget about it and let the plant die.
It turns out I am one of those people that does the same thing over and over expecting a different result. Darn. Are you that way too?
My son sighs a lot. He is so smart and a wonderful creative thinker plus he has a country boy's common sense that makes him a good leader. I often wonder...do we sigh because it makes us feel better or do we sigh because we are resigned. I don't know. What do you think?
I am so easily fooled. The fact that I am a literal thinker in spite of the fact that I am so creative, leaves me wondering what to do a great deal of the time.
A college roommate asked me to "crack the window" one night as we were going to bed. "Would you please crack the window Barbara?" she said. I had never heard that said before. Really, put a crack in the window?
See what I mean.
I am sitting here looking as my Zemanta gadget on the sidebar of my blog. Do you ever wonder about those "keywords" they talk about so much and how that really works?
I have been talking about thinking and remembering and Zemanta gives me "Simulator makes students think while driving." Just under this dialogue are the words "creative process" and "Texting". How does it know? (I am clicking on those words so you can see what they are.)
So there you have it. I may keep a device close at hand so I can take notes throughout the day. I have stuff to say. Now all I need to do is remember what it is!
Have a wonderful day.
