Too busy to think



There are lots of people who are as busy as I've been this week, every week. How do they do it? Whoa.

I usually have plenty of time to process, ponder, contemplate and reflect. I need many hours in a week to walk around, alone, take note of the world. When I'm as busy as I've been this past week, I have absolutely nothing smart to say about anything. Inside my head it's all static. I'm a dud.

My friends depart for San Francisco on Wednesday, I will receive an Auryvedic massage on Thursday. My work schedule this weekend is a bit slower than last week. I so look forward to a less hectic pace, even though this past week has been so much fun.

When I don't have time to think, I'm stupid. In a few days, when my head can stretch out and process everything that has taken place recently, maybe then I'll have something good to say. I hope so!

Not stupid. Overwhelmed perhaps, too much input, but never stupid.

And in the midst of all that you reached 500 miles and held my hand and would not let it go. I hope you find some time this week to turn inward, to ponder, to recharge your batteries. Love, Michael

"When I don't have time to think, I'm stupid." Why do I think that's so hilarious? Because it's true of me, too! Absolutely:)

I guess that means you usually do have lots of time to think. You are a constant source of insightfulness, and that only comes from the ability to think.

my son and i were talking just two days ago about how awesome it would be if we didn't have to think - you know the kind - the thinking about why and when and where and how and all the other stuff!! i figure it's half the fun. the other half is dealing with thinking too much! enjoy the break reya whatever it looks like and however it feels. let it be. steven

Knowing that you need time to rest and reflect is very smart indeed. How sad for those who never figure it out.

Thanks Cheryl. I love that expression, "Dumber than a bucket of sand." But it's hard to imagine you being dumb!
