WHAT TO WRITE ABOUT?
I mmm and hmm.
A thought hits me.
It pings in my mind.
I mmm and hmm. If it keeps pinging and echoing, I write it down on a list called "New Posts."
Yes, I grab onto topics that echo, but dodge major news.
Like that lost Malaysian airplane -- my own interest in it showed me loud and clear, how tragic events take one's mind off the unsolvable doom stuff -- ignored environmental issues, looming threats, clashes between countries, races, and religions.
Oh my goodness, once I open the doomful thoughts door I am inundated -- super-pacs buying the next election, voter's rights, guns-guns-guns right here in my neighborhood etcetera.... etcetera... (That's my "Yul Brynner" quote from the "King and I" musical.)
So the light bulbs go off for lots of things to write about, that I don't want to write about.
Plant a seed in my flower pot, and a Merlin wise blog will grow.
YOU tell me -- email me, send a comment -- what's major, minor, nagging on your mind?
