Thinking, Writing, Recording

| | Comments (4)

I don't do a whole lot of thinking. I try and avoid thinking as a general rule. Some would see this as strange I guess. My mind is always full of *noise*, often from the tv, or reading blogs, or chatting. I don't stop. This could also be why it takes me at least half an hour to get to sleep, because it's just so noisy in my head. And not with anything useful, just clutter.

The only time I do any sort of thinking is usually when I'm driving. It's the place where I get the least mental input and can actually ponder over things, or more usually stress about stuff. It's where I usually get great ideas for blogging, and I sit there and think about how I should word it. The problem is, you can't blog legally in the car, and by the time I've gotten home, had dinner, chatted, watched tv, read emails, read blogs, it's far too late and I have no energy to write. Although strangely, this entry was going to be a quick entry saying how I didn't feel like articulating all of this, and yet here it is.. go figure. Must be Friday. Fridays rock.

On an unrelated tangent, Stu gave me one of his treble recorders to play with, and I've found O For a Thousand Tongues works quite well on it (the little descant recorder goes into "screech" notes making it quite difficult to play). Sadly I found only three other hymns that I know in the hymn book that don't go down too low to play on it (it only goes down to F, and most stuff goes down lower than that, so I'd have to rearrange the octaves - far too complicated!

I have a busy weekend ahead, and hoping to get more than a ten minute stretch of time to talk to my boy.

I used to carry around a pen. and write down ideas I had when I was in places I couldn't write properly. Then expand when I had the chance.

Not a bad idea. Although even writing in the car could be a little tricky :) The biggest problem of course is then dedicating time to actually sit down and write.

What about a digital voice recorder?
