In the past week or so I've sat down at my computer feeling like I really wanted to write something but as soon as I start typing or get just a few words down I realize how garbled all the information in my mind is and I have relatively promptly given up and moved on to other activities leaving that nagging feeling in the back of my mind that I need or want to write something. I just don't know quite what.
I guess for the purposes of humoring myself, I'll describe my mind!! Which is kind of scary at the best of times. On this particular occasion the best analogy I can dream up would be...........
A tumbleweed. A mass of sticks in a ball, easily disturbed by a gentle wind, floating over the earth picking up bits and pieces of leaves, plastic, twigs etc as it goes. Never stopping for long in one location before the wind or a person upset its resting place sending it on it's way again. Or another way of describing my mind would be kind of like a mirage. The fine line that separates reality from fantasy having blurred and become almost indistinguishable. It's kind of a weird way of describing it. Things are muddled and hazy! But in a good way. I think!!

And with that..... here are a couple of pictures of one of the most beautiful spots on the entire west-coast.

Hey tumbleweed! I know the feeling all too well and I bet anyone is into intense learning gets this from time to time. When the finals are done and the term papers are finished, it'll all make sense.
