What’s it like having a creative mind? Maddening and wonderful at the same time. I love seeing the world in a different light to most people. New ways of imagining objects, a different twist to language ( why, for example, does stench have to be a word describing a bad smell, to me it indicates a strong odour. Aroma is nice but delicate. Even with the addition of ‘heady’, it doesn’t sound as strong as stench), are fun to me.
In the last few minutes I have thought about what to write for this blog, the subject list is as follows; weather, food, family, cats, Christmas (or at least a time of coming together as a family regardless of your denomination), the past, update on the Syria story. While it is fun to be able to jump from one subject to another, sometimes it can be difficult to concentrate. Still, it does mean I’m a whiz at word association!
The maddening side of it though, I have to keep my brain active. Various inputs are necessary; music, film, modelling (not the catwalk variety, I mean plastic kits), photography, video games (esp. Dreamfall: Chapters, now that’s a beautiful story right there), reading, writing, cooking, philosophical arguments, space exploration (and not just because of Tim Peake), science and I’d better stop there.
Conclusion: I really need to learn yoga or some other form of meditation to calm this mental hurricane down.
