I have been caught in the political maelstrom. I want out.
So, here I land. I have been cruising health, science and nature sub-forums at google news, BBC and boston.com. i am racking my brain to shake the political bent it's on.
Tomorrow I hike with my bro. This should help, unless the bugger backs out.
So, here's a topic for y'all: daydreaming. My housemate directed my attention to a recent study on the brain function and I am fascinated. I' assumed that daydreaming was akin to dreaming - it is a way to process info, let creative juices flow, and discharge an over-stimulated brain. The article speaks to the second point - creativity. Many great thinkers and inventors were daydreamers. The free-thinking, when it was realized by the thinker, is good. I started a defunct BLOG about my shower thoughts called Shower Liners. In the shower, my mind is left to wander like no other time in my day. I often solve my problems in there.
I have had a lot of 'turmoil' I guess is a good word..
and I have done next to NOTHING but live in my head, fantasizing about different outcomes, different people and different places.
Each time I come back down to earth so to speak, I feel better.
but my head is in the clouds alot lately..
I know what you mean shewolf. Growing up in a tumultuous environment, being the only girl and the youngest, as a kid I learned to live in my head. I used to daydream so much that the real world seemed foreign, less real than the world in my head. But I guess that's the point, huh?
