I’m sure every reader who reads this blog post has experienced ‘wandering mind’ at some point in his or her (new convention, ‘their’) life. So have I. Some cases of wandering mind are like pleasant meanderings when one goes out for fresh air something. There are instances that seem to me, to be reminiscent of what happens when people go onto the Internet and start by checking a friend’s post about why there are naked people as artistic protests nowadays down in Munchen in Germany and end up re-reading about some aspect of subatomic theory you are so old they didn’t teach it to you in school but when it came up on your latest favorite TV show or else your kids brought it up over dinner, you ended up finding out more about it. It isn’t bad, but the sequence does not abide by the rules of linear logic.
A lot of the time that is simply because most situations have a lost going on and are not 2dimensional. For instance as I write this: the keyboard clackety clack as I write / the clock is ticking in the background and the sound of my breathing is loud enough to be noticeable / the coffee table is tidier than it has been in weeks.
That could be poetry or just aspects of a present moment.
