Contemplating the Navel

I'm having one of those nights where I'm thinking about everything that I usually try to not think about because it causes me to just think too much overall. I'll start on Topic A and slide into Topic B without warning, then drift onward into Topic C, and thus it goes until my head is such a jumble that I don't even know where I started.

And that's the point I'm at now. I had something in mind to write about, so I grabbed my computer, and while it loaded up, my mind floated away onto five different topics, and so, now, I have no idea where I started.

I do know that this introspection is no longer an uncommon thing for me, and I'm not sure if that's a good thing or a bad thing. On the one hand, I'm gaining a lot of insight into myself and the ins and outs of the way my mind actually works these days.

On the other hand, my head is a scary place.

No, really.

If I could translate what goes on in my head to paper (or screen) with half the detail that goes on up there, I wouldn't be a struggling author. I'm working on improving this skill.

Anyway, I can't explain where I was going with all of this. It's just a little navel-gazing.
