People say nothing is impossible, but I do nothing everyday. A. A. Milne
Yep, that’s me. I am very good at doing nothing. Well, I do think a lot. That’s doing something. Right? Mostly I think about what I should be doing. You know, stuff that needs to be done.
These thoughts are late because I was thinking. Not necessarily about what to write today but about what needs to get done. Like dusting and vacuuming and cleaning up the messy junk closet. There’s lots of other stuff that needs to get done, but I don’t want to think about that now, maybe tomorrow, or the next day.
So, you see, nothing is possible if you think about it. But then thinking is something so maybe nothing is impossible.
Last night I thought of something to chat about for today’s
I thought at the time,”I should write this down so I don’t forget it.” But I didn’t write it down because it was such a good idea I knew I wouldn’t forget it. Well, I forgot what it was I was going to write about so now I have nothing.
So, that’s it for today’s chat. I really must write myself reminders so I don’t forget my great ideas. I wonder if Einstein had this problem. Probably not he was smart enough to know he might forget so probably always made notes of his great ideas.
“As you get older three things happen.
The first is your memory goes, and I can’t remember the other two.”
Kinda funny that a man named Wisdom would forget two of three things.
Do you know what I am really good at? Nothing! Not that I am not good at anything, there are some things that I am quite good at doing. But I am really super good at doing nothing.
I can sit and look out the window for hours. Doesn’t have to be a great view or anything interesting happening out there. In fact, I don’t even have to look out the window, I can do nothing very well just sitting anywhere.
I know people who must be moving and doing all the time. I don’t understand them. But then they don’t understand me. And that’s okay. Part of what is really neat about doing nothing is that when you get to be an expert at nothing then you aren’t bothered by much of anything.
As an expert in the fine art of doing nothing I know this to be true.
There are exceptions. Politicians are people who are experts at doing nothing who are always bothered by something. But then politicians are a breed unto themselves. Nobody understands them. They don’t even understand each other.
Now if I could just get paid for this nothing thing. Oh, wait then I would be politician…
