Random Thoughts

The blank page of a new article submission form stared back at me and nothing at all came to mind to fill that blank space with.

Then I thought KABOOM, and hoped for an idea to explode into my mind. The idea that exploded into my mind was to search Pixabay for a picture to go with the idea KABOOM. To my pleasant surprise, the picture of the dark cloud shooting lightning with the word KABOOM representing the thunder was the very first picture of the very few Pixabay associated with the word KABOOM.

I took it as a sign; a sign that I should write a random post about the picture I found when I searched for the word KABOOM. Also, the dark cloud is a good representation of the weather we've been having here for the past eleven days, though we've only had the occasional bit of lightning and thunder.

Okay. Now I'm out of random thoughts. It must be time for another cup of coffee.

Mmm coffee. I knew I forgot something when I went out this morning. Ah well, I'll survive with my Diet Dr Pepper.

You are so creative the coffee must work for you. You still must be living in bad weather start looking for bright spots like Ace for there is sunshine there.

I never developed a taste for Dr. Pepper. The idea of diet Dr. Pepper makes me shudder.

Between K and Ace I have love and sunshine in my heart to rival the dreary weather outside.

Ah. The creative process. The best of us are driven a little bit nuts by it. 😕

Wine is not something I enjoy. My palate is not sophisticated enough I guess. It all tastes like sour grape juice to me.

You don't drink it for the taste.

Oh, but don't get me thinking along these lines.

I prefer diet Dr Pepper to regular.

I do like that picture. Hope the weather clears for you

I prefer diet soda on those rare occasions I drink soda now. Yet, I prefer sweet tea. Go figure.

I do enjoy a nice pilsner or light ale on rare occasion. I have had to all but eliminate alcohol because of my health, though. The sugar factor in the alcohol tends to mess up my levels.

I like this random piece. It makes me smile. I tend to put you on a writing pedestal (yes, I do), and this is clearly testament that prolific, accomplished, published authors do not always know from where the next inspiration will come. Thank you, DW. Truly.

Every writer feels a sense of trepidation when facing the blank page. Sometimes a bit of nonsense can rekindle ones muse.

And some of us have to be real careful outdoors in the fall when the squirrels are preparing for winter. I speak of myself, of course.

I'd like to have that picture as a poster to put up in my room, complete with sound effects and lights, for those moments when a student has a major a-ha moment.

That always happens to me and its really a tough time to write so I just relax first and think of happy thoughts

Well, you managed to make a post out of it.

Diet Dr Pepper is, in fact, the bomb diggity. If you look up the bomb diggity in the dictionary, there will be a picture of Diet Dr Pepper. "Nuff said.
