AN EMPTY MIND IS A TERRIBLE THING TO WASTE

EMPTY. My mind is a blank on which I shall not write.

Yup, that’s me this morning. Half asleep … and now that I look, it’s already afternoon. My brain is not seething with ideas, though visions of pillows and soft beds dance in my head. Ah sweet friends, I’m going to let this day slip by.

empty chairs

I shall play frivolous games, put my feet up, have another cup of coffee and enjoy the glorious mindless emptiness of my usually too-busy brain.

Tomorrow, as Candide so well put it (or was it Scarlett O’Hara?), is another day.

  1. Never thought emptiness could be enjoyed so well. I’m a person who doesn’t really go well with embracing emptiness so this inspires me as of now. Thanks!

  2. An empty mind is the devil’s playground, or something like that. I think I’m living proof of that…

  4. It’s a nice and ironic metaphor but I don’t think that even the near strangers here are buying the Empty Mind notion

  6. I found this on the daily prompt page and I’m so glad I did. Thank you for a lovely reminder to be still. There is no music without the rests. There is no rhythm without some changes in direction.

  7. A perfect garden where nothing is moving, everything still, what more could you want. We genius people have to take a break now and again.

    • I would take out most of the remnants of the old garden except for those terrifying dead rose bushes. Maybe I’ll finally pay somebody to do it. Every time I look at it, I feel vaguely guilty because the flowers fight so hard to live and I’m not helping them at all πŸ™‚

    • Honestly, I’m taking pictures of it, but not tending it. It really IS a disaster. The dead areas of rose bushes are covered with lethal thorns, so whatever is there is really taking care of itself. That ANYTHING is growing is a testament to the power of nature to renew herself despite our intereference πŸ™‚

  9. I believe Candid said, “Tend thy own garden,” which you seem to be doing today. Good for you..

  10. That’s Scarlett on the “tomorrow” line. Probably being used by the manager of our Red Sox who are stumbling along a perilous path. Some fans may be mumbling Rhett’s exit line.
