Escaping thoughts

February 26, 2012

She had heard it said so many times: Keep a notebook by the bed to capture the thoughts that fade at dawn like so many stars. She had never adopted the practice, which meant she spent most days trying to remember the ideas forgotten, the words that spilled over from her dreams, the stories she had meant to tell upon waking. The act of trying to remember distracted her from asking why she so feared capturing those communications from the recesses of her brain.

  2. Kären, so true…
