When News gets Old

calmWhat happens when you sit down to write a post and no thoughts come your way? You battle to come up with an idea and think about forcing some keyboard strokes into words that just have little true passion behind them.

Sometimes we had attribute this to writers block, but I prefer to call it “calm”. Some days it is ok to just be and accept a feeling of peace.

I have read a few articles this morning thinking it may stir my mind a bit, but the truth is that I just don’t have much opinion on the subject I have read. The Denver Broncos have won the Super Bowl, the United States is always facing an economic collapse and everyone is interested in who will be the next President. Non of these things have much influence on anything I want to write about. This is just one of those days where I find great pleasure in simply existing.

  1. Sometimes the language of silence is what’s best at these times. 😉

    Silence is a wonderful thing. Used to ALWAYS have the music going — not anymore, and that’s just fine. I had a friend a long time ago who said to me, “Why don’t you just try being a “Human BE-ing, instead of a Human DO-ing?” Words of wisdom. 🙂
