Thinking in the cracks

Person's head emerging from and into a tree

We think in the cracks all the time. We fill in the blank spaces throughout our day with either fodder or deliberation.

The observer internalizes the outside world to create meaning. Not every thought of course, is worth marveling. Sometimes thoughts are just thoughts — they are arbitrary with no bearing on reality. Just as often though, those thoughts bleed into our creativity.

Boredom is an idea generator. If we were smart, we’d find more free time to liberate our brains cells from all the hyperconnectivity. Idleness removes our obligation to follow the whims of the algorithm. Doing nothing is a fertile activity.

Whether we’re on the move or still in the chair, the moments in between make or break our attention, which dictates how we go about our lives.

If you're an artist, photographer, writer, etc., I highly recommend creating your own blog and publishing something new every day (read my post on how to set up a FREE blog on Wordpress).
