I had a friend ask me a few weeks ago how I manage to write so much. She was impressed that I write at least five days each week for my blog.
The answer was easy.
I told her I have this running dialogue in my head, and she nodded her head in agreement saying she does too. So then I said, “All I do is sit down at my computer and type out pretty much exactly what’s going on inside my head.”
We laughed at that.
But for the most part, it is how I write. Yes, there are times I have a specific topic that I have been pondering, begging to get out. But there are also times I don’t honestly know what I want to say, and just let the words flow out.
I’m having a hard time writing today, not because I don’t have a brain filled with thoughts. Rather, it’s because I’m having some issues with my eyes.
Yesterday, John and I went on our Sunday morning bicycle ride to breakfast. We ride to Summerland Beach Café, which is about eight miles away. We had a great time, except for the part when I dropped my Maui Jim sunglasses….and ran over them with my bike.
After a hearty breakfast we rode back home and I felt great. I love the feeling of accomplishment I have from riding 16 miles or so for Sunday breakfast.
Later in the afternoon, I got on my laptop to look at our bank account and I thought something was on my screen. I kept trying to “look around” a blurry spot on the screen and finally just gave up.
That’s when I noticed the blurry spot wasn’t on my laptop.
Everything I was seeing on the right side of my vision was blurry and dark. When I told John the first thing he did was test to see if I’d had a stroke. Which I had not.
I stayed off my computer and phone and kept my glasses off the rest of the day. And I’m feeling a bit better this morning, but I can already tell just writing this is starting to give me a headache.
So, I’m going to keep this short and rest my eyes some more.
There will always be another day to write about all the thoughts swirling around in my head, right?
