Last night as I lay in bed drifting off to sleep .. words came to me that set my mind to thinking.. it would be a good theme either for a post or a song. has that ever happened to you, I know many of you blog/write. Writing is not only a hobby it is a passion.. a need to put something down.. to record a thought. I no long know anyone in my immediate circle who writes a journal, but I do have many who do journals… by do I mean they make journals. Either way, it is our creativity that is being expressed.
Back in the day when I was writing every day, I had a need to write, I wrote prose, poetry, stories, I wrote and posted fashion blogs, entertainment blogs, I had pens in every room…. note pads everywhere in drawers on surfaces..(this was prior to the days when we had cell phones/tablets and laptops)
Of course, I knew last night that I would remember the words/theme it was soooo thought provoking and said so much using so few words. I did not reach for a pen to write it down, I trusted I’d remember when I woke… or got up for a break… Guess what… this morning just the memory of the thought is with me. AND you are right if you think I don’t remember what the lines where that came to mind last night… I only recall that it was a song idea that would have been a country song… about love/relationship/longing etc.
I do remember that I thought,… why do so many songs have to be about “love gone wrong” and that I myself, me…. was not relating to the thought cuz I was happy actually content in that moment. happy with my personal thought process… so maybe that is why I didn’t feel the need to jump up then and there and start writing.
Today’s quote is about listening with Makoto (sincerity) in particular in interactions with others. However, I feel that it is advice that needs heeding in how we deal with our own thoughts and ideas that pop up in our own gray cells.
Face the speaker, make eye contact and listen carefully. Listening to people is also a form of expression. Listen with Makoto (sincerity)Perfect Liberty 2022.15
There is /are reasons that thoughts and ideas go through our heads.. in my case, I think I was teetering on feeling a bit sorry for myself ..I was perhaps disappointed (so ego crept in and reared its head) .. my left brain was going into a woe is me mode… when the right side took over and restored calm and quiet. My inner self, preferred the happy and content response… because that was my true feeling.. I like being happy =^_^= (my ego -I do have one- had to back off)

One time I woke up in the middle of the night with a perfect 4 line stanza of a poem relating to birds and songs and something. I remember thinking, “This is so perfect-I need to write this down!” and trying to rouse myself but the weight of sleep wouldn’t let me get up and I couldn’t force myself to get up, but I assured myself I’d remember in the morning. In the morning, I only remembered about it but couldn’t for the life of me remember the 4 lines which had seemed so perfect… So I decided it wasn’t really about the 4 perfect lines of poetry, but was a ‘sign’ to start writing in earnest…
yes, a perfect reaction… you listened… bravo..
