...I decided to cut back on the texting, like back to NONE if I can do anything about it.
Within the space of about an hour, I had a texting "conversation" with a friend of mine over absolute nonsense, and only realized later that we could have just called each other and the conversation would have lasted about 30 seconds. What's worse is that, while I could have been focusing on other things (I haven't composed anything new for about a month now), I could feel my mind preoccupied with waiting for my friend's text responses, sort of like my mind was tethered to the little digital device sitting at the edge of the table.
I know we like to think we have control, but how much time do we spend in our minds waiting for phone calls, text messages, emails, etc? Even when we're physically doing other things, our minds are always preoccupied with wondering about communication through our little digital devices. Why hasn't he (or she) called? Why are they taking so long returning my text? What did that text mean? Who else is he (or she) texting? Etc. etc.

Okay, things are getting pretty serious here. I have gone, I don't know, four, five, six weeks without blogging and it has not been because I didn't want to. Honestly, the times when I do sit to write, I just completely blank. Nothing really is going on in my life that's worth mentioning and I haven't had a single weird or crazy dream (with our without polar bears) for some time now. I do still have my suspicions about The Polar Bear Project, don't get me wrong about that, but even that little piece of my life has fallen dormant lately. I guess I shouldn't be complaining about having my sanity back, even if just for a little while...
Anyways, I am now reaching out to my fellow bloggers. Donate some ideas to me! Please! It can be anything...I just need something to write about at least to keep my writing skills decent.
By the way, if you have a chance check out Bleah's Blog. She is a very sweet blogger and very good about checking up on her followers...!
What's up with the dog? Really, I just like the picture. He (or she) looks determined to overcome all obstacles, even writer's block.So how about it? Anyone with any ideas they wouldn't mind tossing me...?
