This new category for 2017 is primarily about thinking. Thinking in unconventional and creative ways. It is about letting your mind wander into some very different possibilities.
Crayon Marks which will cover a wide variety of topics about the world around us but the link to to the central idea of off the wall thinking will always be there. Right now the subcategory’s links are rather sparse, I will be adding more as they are appropriate.
I am convinced that one of the reasons that so many today are looking for an escape hatch in this spinning world is that they just don’t think enough. But in reality, all of us are lazy thinkers to one degree or another. One of the reasons for that is probably because that is what many of us have been taught. Some are told at an early age to let others smarter than we do the thinking. Some due to inferiority issues don’t believe that they are smart enough to think for themselves.
Personally, most of these types of type of thoughts seem to be like crayon marks scribbled across my brain, hence the theme for this category. They come and often quickly go if I don’t write them down. It seems unconventional thinking is just something that I MUST do on a daily basis. It is engrained in my brain. They say genius and insanity are close cousins, maybe that has something to do with it but since I don’t really consider myself either, maybe not.
I’m pretty convinced that I generally don’t think quite the same way as most around me. This could be due to my Aspergers but I don’t really know that is the true origin. Maybe these types of thoughts are Freudian in nature or maybe something I got from Maslow or Berne. I certainly studied them a lot in my earlier years. Who knows? Sometimes my brain just works in mysterious ways, no, actually most times it works in mysterious ways. 🙂 It is just that maybe I am finally letting my unconventional thinking land somewhere that others can see.
