My husband knows better then to ask where I’m going when I jump out of bed at 1:15 in the morning and head downstairs… inevitability it’s to pen a thought on paper so I can get it out of my head.
In the kitchen there are at least three legal pads full of twilight scratch marks and every once in awhile, I take a thought (those that are coherent enough) and turn them into a post or a chapter.
Tonight, I reread the gibberish of something that I penned over a month ago. The beginning made sense (it still needs a lot of work though), as did the middle… but it was the ending (which I had forgotten about) that made me stop and shake my head …
“Why is the qualifier "lifelong" needed when you talk about learning? … All learning is lifelong. The only thing that isn’t (lifelong learning) is death.” -- how's that for profound. :)
Note to self: You need to write
Does anyone else do this?
