I awoke in the wee hours this morning with fleeting ideas and bits of sentences that, if remembered, just might make for a halfway decent post. But no somnambulistic blog writing for me. At least not yet. Damn, can’t remember a single “idea” I had. Have you ever awakened in the middle of the night while having a particularly vivid or exciting dream/nightmare, grabbed a writing utensil and pad (old school) so that in the morning you could impress yourself with what your unconscious self was doing while you slept? Remember reading it and thinking “wtf ?”
“Vapid” That is the perfect adjective to describe my brain as of late. I can’t put it down to too much television as I don’t watch all that much. Hm….maybe we should have cable TV after all… If circumstances were different and I had all the advanced techno gadgets and gizmos at hand would I be any more creative, more prolific, more accomplished…..would I be more than I am? Is Technology a tool or a crutch? Does it help or hinder? Perhaps it is simply a function of age. The older one is the more items on the “to do list”. Is the cumulative effect (of aging) too much even for modern technology? There is still only 24 hours in a day, only 7 days in a week. Why in the world would I not be able to sit down and write a post everyday? Or practice a musical instrument or read or heaven forbid, write a book. The things we put off doing one day for another day simply increases the” inertial reflex”. Don’t know if that is a word or not but I like it.
How ’bout another?
