Every Sunday morning I make a point to participate in the five minute brain dump. It is a useful tool for practicing my writing and I like the way it helps to clear my mind.
I like trying to wash away the grains of sleep before I sit down with my children and listen to their Sunday morning stories. It is about being present and they need that from me.
My mind has always worked quickly and it is not unusual for me to be thinking about two or three things at once, but I don’t like doing that with them. I want them to get my full attention and that is not always easy to do.
Maybe it is because of me and maybe it is because of the journey I am on now because I am most certainly walking down my own yellow brick road but I don’t have any companions yet.
Or maybe I do, maybe there are a few that I just haven’t recognized. Maybe I am too focused on doing what needs to be done to recognize them. I ought to slow down and think about it because we all need a helping hand.
Someone might want to tell the flying monkeys and the witch to give me some clearance because although I am excited and quite happy I haven’t any time to fool around with their antics. I won’t just dump a bucket of water on the witch nor will I let the monkeys mess with me.
Unless they want 240 pounds of nasty they ought to stay away. Just ask the devil what happened the last time he met me in Georgia.
This journey is something else, it is fun and exciting but there is a certain amount of “nervousness” attached to it. But they are good nerves and I am still smiling.
Don’t know why but in the background of my mind I hear a mix of Dylan singing Knocking on Heaven’s Door, The Doors playing The End and Fleetwood Mac singing Gold Dust Woman.
