Short Circuit

I have a love hate relationship with my brain.

Yes, without it I wouldn’t be here now, pecking at my phone.

But, I get stuck in it,

In a matter of milliseconds after the slightest trigger.

The position of the sun,

A smell wafting through the air,

Free time,


Anything can slow me down.

And once moment is gone….

All I can do, is move any predictable road blocks.

Make life easier,

by short-cutting,

Short circuiting my brain.

Making a time and space for those deep, sometimes ruminating, thoughts.

And much more room for life.

I am a writer with an extremely active imagination. I love learning answers to questions and what makes everything and everyone tick. I am a "Unique case, medically" if nothing else. I am flawed in my extreme aversion to failure (even when "success" isn't good for me,) but have come a long way in ditching the perfectionist mindset. I like people whose default setting toward others is compassion, an open mind, and honesty
