A QUIET TIME WITH MY BRAIN.....

THE DISCONNECTION.... by b. Malin

I'VE GOT NO THOUGHTS.....NOTHING CHURNING AROUND IN MY BRAIN. WORDS OF WISDOM SEEM TO ELUDE MY MIND. THERE IS NOTHING BUT THE SILENCE THAT SURROUNDS ME, THE QUIET DIGGING DEEPER INTO MY SOUL....AND THEN NOTHING AT ALL....NO ACTIVITY.

DOES IT SCARE ME?

WELL...MAYBE JUST A LITTLE. BUT IN A WAY, IT'S KIND OF NICE....ALL THIS QUIET....THIS TRANQUILITY....NO THOUGHTS TO SHARE....AND NO DESIRE TO DO SO.

HOW LONG WILL IT LAST?

UNTIL THE PHONE RINGS....OR THE DOOR BELL CHIMES....OR I PRESS THE "ON" KEY TO MY "MAC". WILL THAT TRIGGERING MY BRAIN TO CONNECT ONCE AGAIN WITH THE OUTSIDE WORLD? I DON"T FEEL FEAR....I HAVE NO PAIN...I FEEL CALM.

WILL MY BRAIN SPARK BACK WITH SOME CLEVER THOUGHTS....SOME WITTY CONVERSATION? WILL I WRITE MY BEST WORK....TO BE READ AND PRAISED BY ALL?

SHALL I TELL ANYONE OF THIS MOMENT WHEN MY BRAIN BECAME UNPLUGGED....UNPROGRAMED.... UNDONE...JUST NOT THERE.

I COULD LAUGH AND TELL THEM WITH A SMILE....IT WAS MY QUIET TIME WITH MY BRAIN....A TIME OUT.

PEOPLE MIGHT WONDER ABOUT ME... SOME MIGHT THINK THAT I HAD LOST MY MIND....THIS JUST DOESN'T HAPPEN TO SANE PEOPLE THEY WOULD SAY.

I SMILE POLITELY AS I THINK TO MYSELF....ANOTHER "DRONE" WOULD UNDERSTAND... AND NEVER QUESTION WHY.

Some of us can truly appreciate this state of mind. To me it's the ultimate form of meditation to which you speak of here. Love it!

AMF thank you so very much for your comments. You always seem to get it right!

It's a shame that most people don't take a "time out" when it comes along.
