To say something wise is an urge I think that everybody has at least several times a day. Everyday, I find myself in imaginary dialogue with somebody, speaking to them from a place of authority and experience. I see people speaking like this everyday as well, without the self-awareness to see that the instinct to be wise almost invariably precedes the supposedly-wise-thing said.
And so I find myself about to start a page called ‘thoughts’. I like to identify myself as many things, but one of them is as ’somebody who probably has interesting thoughts.’ Most of the time I don’t though. Most of my prime consciousness time is squandered on fantasy, recollection and imagined dialogue. However, I usually have at least one interesting thought at any one period of time. Sometimes the same thought acts as a sort of reference point to my experience of reality for several weeks. These are the sort of thoughts that I would like to share.
