what will blogging bring

I have no idea. After blogging for more years than fingers I have on one hand (never lost a finger yet) you would think I might have a better idea.

Once in 2013 I wrote about feelings - "do you have something to say". As one reader commented, it was painfully sappy.

Sappy - Too much of that can make me happy because it gives me a laugh.

Yeah runnin’ down a dream
That would never come to me
Workin’ on a mystery, goin’ wherever it leads
Runnin’ down a dream

runnin down the snow

Had I known Tom Petty’s song would have fit my blogging so well I would have titled my blog “Runnin Down A Dream.” The clown idea for the title came from a co-worker long ago. Since then I’ve had second thoughts about the clown part. The later generations seem to fear clowns much more than I realized. I clown around a little but I’m not a clown and have yet to join a circus but I like elephants.

Back in July 2013, I noticed that July seems to be a month of ideas for me. I don’t know why. This year I might need to wait until July for my brain to complete thaw from our polar vortex frozen days. Here’s the post on my July idea month.

A characteristic of blogging that still surprises me is how it starts recursive thinking between my neurons. Thinking about how we think is recursive. Blogging about blogging certainly is. I imagine a post about other posts which I’m doing now is probably not very interesting. Not much different than complaining about FB on FB (have you done that?).

There's something good waitin' down this road
I'm pickin' up whatever is mine

Well, I'm confused. Is that upside down truck about temperature inversions. Polar vortex inversions. I haven't inverted enough neurons?

I'm one of those who fear clowns. Well, not fear so much as loathe.

I agree with you about the love/hate thing and snow plows.You picture nearly makes me dizzy. Perhaps I should stand on my head, huh?

So the vortex has moved on. Is Chicago area weather being nicer this week???

I remember that song! Flashbacks!!
My blogging goes in spurts. I think I run out of ideas and need to take a break to re-charge.

Temps in the teens - heat wave. It's predicted to rain this weekend?
Hey if my blog gets you stand on your head then maybe I should start including a warning statement.

flashbacks can be fun
I suspect all writing goes in spurts. Life could be long series of spurts. It's a mystery to me. Be careful re-charging. We done want any flash fires.

Yeah I think a few serial killers dressed as clowns ruined it for all clowns. I'm indifferent to clowns. I've seen women who have clown faces in over-the-top makeup and apparently think they look good.

The warning would have to include "watch for falling women who have no balance and shouldn't be standing on their head."
