Blogging in Bed
My "writing" often occurs in the wee hours of the morning as I lie abed longing to be held in the arms of Morpheus but nevertheless gratified that since the mind will not shut down usable ideas sometimes impinge themselves upon my consciousness.
Some of the material you see here on String Too Short to Tie was produced in just this manner. Maybe the value of that is reflected in the quality of the product. Be kind.
Thursday night a complete story, fictional but illustrative of one of life's truths, filtered through my mind and finally sleep came.
Often when I dream I can recall upon awakening that I had a dream but find it elusive when I try to remember the details or even what it was about.
Friday morning when I sat at the keyboard to transcribe the tale of the previous night I found that I remembered the story, but the quality of the thing seemed to be somewhat below the standard I hope to achieve. Pondering on this I realized that what had occurred was a semi-sleep dreamy event in which I was actually dreaming that I was lying awake creating a blog post.
Conclusion: The whole thing was not worthy of being posted. Yet somehow I managed to think that this account of the events was blog worthy. Go figure.
Also, thank me for sparing you the tale.
