Not thoughtless in an uncaring way, but thoughtless in a without thoughts way. And not exactly thoughtless either, come to think of it.

I’m zapped of all inspiration at the moment. It must be a side effect of the bath incident the other day, combined with the Lunar energies from the Supermoon.

I’ve been looking into the far corners of my mind for something to write about, and although ideas are there, and they are springing forward at me at a rate of knots, I just can’t get what I want to say into words. Vary random it is too.

I’ve been taken back into the mists of time, when the Earth was a very different place. Long before people existed – and animals for that matter; where the continents were in a different place, and there were one or two extra stars in the night sky.

I’ve been exploring the catacombs beneath Aqua Mansion through my mind’s eye, but nothing I came across explained the strange rumbling and groaning noises I heard coming from down there.

I’ve been listening to a piece of enchanting music coming from somewhere beyond the Grinds around the Mansion, carried on the winds, but the more I listened the fainter it became.

I’ve been soaring through the skies again, swimming through the oceans, walking through a rainforest, riding a waterfall, playing with lions, illuminated by the Northern Lights, tickled by a butterfly, welcomed by a group of orangutans, visited by a friend from another dimension, tasted delicious alien fruits, somersaulted, danced, hopped, skipped and jumped, and sat quietly and just ‘been’.  But I can’t think of anything to write about.

Sigh.

Still, I feel good, so can’t complain.

Maybe I’ll find some inspiration in time for my next post…

  1. Very good and very amusing! 🙂

    I know what you mean though: I sat in front of my PC with nary an idea to go with and wrote two chapters! 🙂

    Hope you find your inner muse soon! 🙂

    God Bless!

      Hopefully something will come to mind by the end of the day today, Prenin.

    1. Hi Soma – It’s quite frustrating when you really want to write, but the creativity just isn’t flowing properly!

  5. It hits us all from time to time.

    Why not look back through old writings and see if there’s something you can update?

    1. I may do that, Tilly. I’m deleting all of my old rubbish posts, so there may be something hidden within them that I can recycle.

  6. For someone who is apparantly lacking in inspiration and doesn’t know what to write you’ve done a remarkably good job here…even your “thoughtless thoughts” make great reading!!!

    1. Thanks for saying so, Icewolf. I had all those thoughts, but couldn’t go any further with them at the time. I could use them as prompts for the future though…

    1. The thing is, Susan, I seem to write about nothing quite a lot of the time… at least I try to do it differently each time. Thank you, by the way!
