Memory: A Poem

Not too good with time -- Past, Present, Future. My mind erases what is not in front of me. Too many other thoughts and concerns competing for my attention. --Kitt O'Malley

Distracted Driving

My sister made me promise not to drive and videotape myself at the same time because that is driving while distracted. There’s one problem with that, and that’s that I’m more distracted when I don’t articulate my thoughts. Because they race through my head, and I can only speak or write so quickly.

No matter how quickly I speak or how fast I type or write, it’s not nearly as fast as my thoughts. And, it actually slows me down. So, I am less distracted. Hard to understand if you don’t have thoughts that go really fast. Thoughts that are kind of a press of ideas. Too much. Too much. So anyway, that’s it.
