Runaway Brain!!

Love it when my brain tries to run away from itself. It had a good go of it this morning while I was making coffee. I was just standing there when  got the familiar and awful feeling of falling backwards while standing up. The stomach-clenching, breath-taking,fear inducing sensation, and the dread of falling forever, without the relief of landing. That feeling wallops me, and I keep making coffee, and one teeny part of my mind starts thinking.

First I thought of how lovely it would be to be an adolescent again, so I could take myself way too seriously, and write and post some angsty poetry with Poe-esque imagery and no capital letters. So then I ruefully laugh at myself, as I did whenever I caught myself doing that as a teen. A few moments pondering imagery as I grind coffee and wait for the kettle to boil, and now I’m picturing holding a piece of fruit, moving it laterally through the air, and pointing at it…

Wait for it…..

Ponder it…

Oh yes. A wave of this (dis) pear. Yeesh.
