The title says it all. And poses the problem.
The semester has just ended and I have been busy thinking (on some level) for four to five months straight. Sometimes I did not want to think. But now I do. The problem is that now that I do, I am having trouble doing it.
It hasn’t helped that I’m surrounded by people who are thinking. As I was thinking about writing this blog look what I saw on a friend’s blog.
So now I feel much like Melissa Gutierrez explained at times in her Spain journal (the reading of which showed she has a lot of blog-worthy thoughts – bug her to post if you know her!). She described her “thinker” as not being on.
And so, dear two readers, my thinker is not on. I am on a quest to remedy that. I browsed over 100 entries on Google Reader and have not yet come to anything. I know I promised some thoughts on interpretation but they are not yet coming.
But I have a plan. Reading, discussing with aforementioned Melissa and going to Cambridge in a month. Hopefully that will do it. Hopefully I’ll have some thoughts to share before then.
In the meantime, please help me out – what do you do to turn your thinker on?
