Wednesday Wonky

imageDo you ever get the mind-blanks?  Those moments where you just can’t remember something?  Maybe it’s an aging thing.  I don’t know.  I do know I don’t like it.  At.  All.  I hate those moments where I’m reaching for a thought and … nope, it’s gone.  Like the pigeons in Bolt, “I t’ought I knew, but no.”  Funniest. Pigeons. EVER. by the way.  🙂

Maybe there’re just too many thoughts swirling around up there and I’ve been remiss in not “tapping the keg” as it were.  Hey, it could happen.  I’m a quiet type, I do a lot of thinking you know, I just don’t often share it. 

And that’s part of my conundrum I think.  Heh.  There is this part of me that really wants to shout some things, shout them out loud from the highest rooftops.  Then there’s that part of me that feels like, who needs another voice shouting in the wilderness?  I don’t want to get lost in the cacophony.  Know what I mean?  Who, really, cares about things like “dialogue”?  (Sounds more like a script to me than an actual conversation anyway.)  Doesn’t everyone pretty much have their mind made up already, about everything?  I’m not going to convince anyone of those things I know to be true, those are the kinds of things that people have to come to on their own. 

And they often do, eventually.

Still, I often feel like retreating.  It’s not my place to convince anyone of anything and hey, no one asked me for my opinions.  But I do have them.  In SPADES, baby.  Believe it or not, there are few more opinionated people than me. 

I think I just feel sort of stuck.  Tired of the fluffy, but not really in the mood to shout.  Like I said, I really am a quiet type. 

Oh well.

Did you remember to flip your calendar today?  Happy December!

  1. Do you ever get the mind-blanks? Those moments where you just can’t remember something? Maybe it’s an aging thing.

    Can’t remember what my comment was! 🙂


    LOLOL I hate it when that happens! 😀


  2. Deep stuff, Fal. Do I hear a hiatus coming?

    I don’t rightly know. Something’s changing, that’s for sure, just don’t know what yet. 🙂


  3. Writer’s block complicated by stress of good change (DK going to work) with a dash of why did Christmas come now when I’m so busy?

    Yeah, I’ve had those moments. They’re normal. I flip over and out when they happen because Grandma, Mom and Aunt all died of Alzheimer’s. However, a doc at Penn Hosp who has big clinical trial tested me and said even with my history, I may not get it.

    Just live the day in every way – with or without the info you seek. Meanwhile, crawl to the computer if you have to. Don’t disappear into hiatus hell. 🙂

    Hiatus Hell – great way to put it, dear one, and thanks for the reminder of what awaits those of us who think to just “take some time off.” LOL


  4. I find myself staring at the ceiling a lot lately. I guess I think the answer to ‘what was I doing?’ is written up there or tilting my head lets my brains slide back into thinking position.

    Well, who knows? Maybe the “what was I doing” answer really is up there. We’d never see the Sistine Chapel if we didn’t look up once in a while, right? And, in all the movies, that’s how all the bad guys sneak up on the good guy, by hiding “up” because no one ever looks up. You’re actually ahead of the curve to look up frequently. 🙂
