The idea for a post can occur on Monday night
Or Tuesday morning. Which is good because
It gives me the full week to cogitate,
Otherwise known as procrastinate.
Or maybe my brain is dead
Then something happens.
Something startling perhaps.
Or ridiculous enough to wrench
Me out of my lethargy. Not necessarily an event.
A setting can do it. Even a tranquil setting.
Seals on a beach at the mouth of the Russian River
Where I went for a wedding last weekend.
Look at them. Wow…
What are they doing down there?
Just relaxing for hours and hours?
Enjoying their life without any guilt?
Then rolling into the sea to cool their blubber?
Then back on the sand for another five hours of snoozing?
No work to catch up on for Thursday?
No cleaning the house or mowing the lawn?
No blog to write on Friday? Damn seals!
Or perhaps it’s an striking image
That suggests a blog to me on Saturday.
An image I might come across in my Pictures Folder.
Or a dusty item in a drawer from the distant past.
A pair of antique glasses, for instance,
That I bought at an Army/Navy Store in 1968
And removed the glass and put in red lenses.
The lenses changed the way the world appeared.
Not rosier, necessarily, but more interesting.
I haven’t worn these glasses in a very long time.
I put them on to see how I looked.
Okay…I had hair back then.
And no gray in my beard. But the tie-dye sheet
On my wall was pretty much the same.
Or at least I remember it that way.
Then the decades tumble forward,
College, marriage, career, children,
The marriage of children…and
Grandchildren in the future, maybe.
No need for red glasses now.
The world has changed all by itself.
And that’s always interesting to write a blog about.
