Strange Thoughts

Because if I keep all of this inside, I'll go nuts!

2007-05-18 - 15:28:29


I've wanted to write this blog for a couple of years now. But time is a rarity in my life and this, like many other projects, was pushed back.

Why am I writing this blog? What are these strange thoughts I have? And, more importantly, am I the only one who's brain seems to work the way it does?

The "why" is pretty simple. Because I must. I see this blog as something akin to the "pensieve" in the Harry Potter books. The pensieve is a sort of bowl in which Dumbledore takes some of his memories and stores them for a later use. I don't remember if this is explained in the books or not, but I believe this device lets the mind work with less worry about remembering details of important events. In a way, this blog will let me spill in written form the ideas and memories I go through every once in a while just so I won't forget them. By writing them down, I probably risk some ridicule, but I'm freeing myself up for further mental explorations. I have the feeling that the fear of forgetting these things sometimes keeps me from having more of these strange thoughts.

The "what" will be part of the texts that will be showing up here from time to time. I have absolutely no idea if this is of interest to anybody else than myself, and that's OK. Even if absolutely nobody reads them, the texts will at least have served the purpose explained in the above paragraph.

As for the "who else" part of this, I'd sincerely love to hear from other people who have had similar experiences. If I'm all alone living through some thing that ends up being a benign form of dementia, so be it. If you have any questions or comments about the ideas posted on this blog, I'll be happy to read your posts.

I hope you'll enjoy visiting this site.
