'Life would be a ding-a-derry'

I had this great idea for a ranting essay while walking to the Tesoro this morning to buy a map. Now, unfortunately, I can't remember what it was or even remotely what the subject was. I know it was something to do with petty authority--maybe. Human conciousness is a fascinating thing--we claim to be so aware of ourselves and of our surroundings, but one must wonder how aware we really are. Moment by moment things just seem to slip in and out with ease. It is a pretty poor data retrieval system if you ask me.


  1. Hah, you have brought to mind an incident from a few years ago. It was a lesson in perception to me. I was walking by a fellow teacher during afterschool duty and suddenly had a flash of how the world looks through her eyes. I think I could do it because I've had to stand where she was standing for duty many times, this time though, I saw myself walking by...hard to explain...but anyway. I try to "see" through other's eyes now.

  2. Also, I find that walks are very theraputic for me. Something about the constant physical movement helps my brain work on problems and gives insight.
