Beneath the swirling

Today as I sit pondering what to say, nothing comes to mind. No story or point rises to the top of my swirling thoughts. The jumble of ideas fail to coalesce so I simply type words, not ideas. My internal hopes and frustrations compete against one another yet none gain support to become whole.

A brain so filled with half, nah, partial ideas. Each only a passing glimpse of a point a fragment of a story, a nothing striving to become real. And even as I write this I ponder is this the day it will be, a day of partial, a day of not quite knowing what to say or how to say it? My fear is that maybe it is, and perhaps that is okay. 

Perhaps it is okay to have a day where my brain is so full of the ramblings of the partial that nothing whole is able to stand its ground. Maybe there is some value in the partial. Maybe there is some point in the fracture, the fraction, the grain of sand. They say pearls are made from a simple grain, one simple irritant that simply will not go away. One can hope that perhaps a pearl is being created. One can dream that under this constant swirl something valuable is or hopefully will be buried beneath to rise at an appropriate time. 

Though in the meantime my spouting of nonsense must come to an end. And as I end I will simply say, I hope you have a wonderful day.

Blessings!

Enjoyed your “pondering” Greg

This is particular .. 

Maybe there is some value in the partial. Maybe there is some point in the fracture, the fraction, the grain of sand. They say pearls are made from a simple grain, one simple irritant that simply will not go away. One can hope that perhaps a pearl is being created. 

 

There are “grains of sand” everywhere .. and pearls await ;~)😇

 

There are rings on pearls filled with circles & swirls

Inside the oyster the pearl dances & whirls .. color unfurls

 

Searching for pearls among rings

Such a search may require wings

Adventure that is meant for kings

Not all rings have earthly strings

You’re in good company, Greg. Not having their thoughts focused and coherently presented has never stopped any politician from holding a press conference. 🤗

Similarly on the subject of unfinished business, when Noah told the animals to “go forth and multiply” he was taken aback at two lingering small snakes. It appears that adders can’t multiply. 😂🤣😂
