Brain on Standby…Hold, Please

I keep trying to pin down a thought.







Crap…there goes another one.

Distracted by minutiae*

Unable to FOCUS!

*slaps face*

Need sleep, breath…peace.

I have a moth for a brain and the light bulb burns like an acetylene torch.**

The afterimage from staring into the glow is cutting holes in my cerebellum.

I write, but it’s nothing to write home about.

Have posts unpublished and no time for review, reflection, or renewal.

Stop the world spinning so fast…I might be sick.

And so it goes, and so it goes, and so it goes…


I am Fine
In searching for an image for ‘Thoughts’ this is what I found. Seems about right.


Asterisk Bedazzled Footnote:

*One of which is the correct spelling of the plural of minutia.

**Googled the spelling of that one too.

    1. I’ve never understood the implications of the four-knot, handkerchief-on-head as an emblem of British humor! Perhaps you have some insights? I mean, yes, it looks kind of dorky, but does it have deeper implications than I am understanding? There should be a panel or study proposing research into this fascinating topic. With wine. Lot’s and lot’s of wine to lubricate the methodology.

      1. They are supposed to represent Yorkshire farmers. But I don’t know for sure. For me this clip is funny by itself, but more because back when this show as airing I got hit by a truck and suffered a severe concussion. At a certain point, I had to go see a brain surgeon. I walked to his office and sat down to wait. I noticed his sign, “Dr. XXX, Brain Surgery” I cracked up. When I went in, I actually said, “Doctor, my brain hurts.” You know, life is sometimes just too absurd. 🙂

  1. For someone who has nothing to say, you sure say it darn well.
    I google spellings all the time. I also google how to pronounce things, such as asiago cheese, so I don’t embarrass myself at the deli.
    Yes, I have issues.

    1. I still can’t figure out how to say the weird super fruit acai where there is half a question mark on the bottom of the C! I heard it pronounced but I find it so daunting, I second guess myself every time. It’s okay, though, I prefer pomegranate anyway!

  2. … and then there are the complications of menopause.

    Dunno why I said that, but it’s the first thought that flashed through my synapses. Projecting my own experience, no doubt. But I do want to acknowledge your situation and bear witness. Wish I could help.

    1. Hmm, I’ve not considered this might be related to The Change. Kinda figured I wouldn’t have the same problem since I’ve little to no estrogen to begin with. (TMI? That’s TMI, isn’t it?) But I suppose it’s possible. Please tell me there is light at the end of this very long, very muddled tunnel!
