I wish I had a mini recorder implanted into my brain. Why is it that I have the best brainstorming sessions when I am nowhere near a computer and a pencil and paper are out of sight. Or I’ll happen to be somewhere that a pen and paper or laptop just can’t go…like in the shower, or as I am washing dishes…
Or as I’m swimming out in the ocean all by myself, with my family playing on the beach. Free to swim until I can’t swim no more. I get the best thoughts during these mini swimming sessions. I am not a big swimmer. I don’t want to elude that I am. I use the dip to cool off and feel that freedom of the vast ocean for just a minute. For that moment, I am alone in my thoughts. And it is awesome.
Back to that recorder…I suppose when I am washing dishes and a brilliant sentence pops into my mind and I am sure I won’t be able to duplicate it later, I could break right real quick and scribble down my thoughts on a pad of paper waiting near by. And maybe keeping a pen and paper hanging outside the shower, with a glove that I put on because I don’t want to wet the paper and make my scribbles for not, could be a good idea. Hmmm. Maybe. Maybe not.
Another location where I do some of my best writing in my head is while I am putting my son to sleep or up with my daughter in the middle of the night. These are moments when I especially wish I had that little recorder embedded in my brain. And a camera that magically takes pictures using my very own two eyes. I do try to do this. Always taking note, or a picture with my memory. But wouldn’t a mini recorder or camera eye be just so cool?
Heck while at it, can you make it so I can wiggle my nose and the house would be clean, the laundry done and folded (and put away) and dinner was made? Oh and make my kids like their vegetables. That would be perfect! Thank you.
