OF LIVE BAIT, RUNAWAY HORSES AND HELIUM BALLOONS.

April 26, 2018

 

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..
