I had a thought. Actually I had a number of them when I was out walking this morning. One of them was how good it felt to feel the cool morning midwestern breeze on my face when I was out for my initial walk. Then I remembered listening to the birds calling out to one another. The Blues Jays were off to the south somewhere and it appears we have a rather healthy cardinal population. Then I had a number of thoughts for a blog for this morning. Then they all vanished like a wisp of smoke in a breeze just as soon as I finished up my first walk.
Early dementia? Maybe. Signs that my brain still doesn’t want to function properly. Definitely. Some people will tell me that it’s just a sign of me getting older and they have lots of issues just like these. But it’s not my “normal” where my brain would capture tons of irrelevant facts and figures to be recalled in some future date while watching “Jeopardy” on the TV or whenever I would be playing some game of Trivial Pursuit.
It does make for an interesting day tho. Stress slows down and what I was thinking before sometimes pops back into my lil’ pea brain as a new idea once again. A “new normal“? Maybe it’s not going to end up as a bad thing after all.
