Have you ever seen a tin of live bait?


Those little critters wriggle and crawl.


  • In every direction.

  • Over each other.

  • Under each other.

  • Around each other.

  • Always moving.


That would be my mind.


I work hard at going inside.


Being still. (Mentally that is.)


And just as I reach that illusive state, well,


One little worm starts wriggling.


And my mind switches into that runaway horse mode.


My wriggling worm and I are “Up Up and away in my Beautiful Balloon.”


Thoughts race and leap.


Like runaway horses.


Pulling that balloon.


It’s a mess.


I think of something. Write down a few words. Start formulating a sentence. Another word in that sentence I’ve created grabs me.


I start a fresh page. A different blog in mind. A few words. A new sentence.


It happens again.


I stop for coffee. Return to my notebook. Find five half-formed ideas on paper.


I learned, the hard way, that when an idea grabs me I must go with it.


Right then.


To the end.


I learned, that if something takes hold of me while knitting or reading at night, NOT to put it on the back burner with the thought -


“I’ll see to it tomorrow”


That thought won’t be there tomorrow. What will be there?


“What was I thinking of last night?”


Brief notes as one writer suggested?


I look at them the next day or a couple of days later and once again –


“What was all that about?”


The lesson, for me at least, is –


“Don’t put off until tomorrow what can be done today.”


Cyber Hugs and Blessings All.


Put a lid on your tin of wriggling bait and reign in those horses..
