The NewsLog of Flemming Funch

Hm, some days I don't seem to hit on anything I feel like blogging about. Not that I wouldn't be able to find material. But I'd much prefer to feel somewhat inspired when I pick out what to write about. And I'd prefer to believe there's some kind of useful thread that weaves through the items I pick, and the pieces I write. So, if I don't feel it, I can't honestly do it. OK, on many days I'm just picking out a few items from the news that flows by, without adding much of myself into it. But I still need to feel a minimal inspiration of some kind.

If I'm not in the mood, or when I'm out of my element, traveling for example, it also reveals that I don't necessarily write about just anything that happens to me. Some people do, but that is often boring. If I really was just writing about anything, without filtering it much, I should never have any problem. But I suppose I usually try to write from a slightly elevated place. Meaning, I'm at a broadband connection, and I've had a sufficiently leisurely time to idly browse around various news sources, or sit and philosophize about life. It might not work if I'm sick or stressed or my laptop takes forever just to download my mail at some hotel somewhere. Except for once in a while, I might even wake up in the middle of the night with something I just have to go write down to share. During some parts of my life, that would happen every day - that I'm just burning to write something. Recently it is only happening occasionally.

I know what you mean...I'm suffering that too... maybe it's...Oh, why am I bothering, I don't even have something to say as a comment...my ex wouldn't believe this...Aum mani padme hum..  

22 May 2003 @ 06:33 by Istvan @ : Suffering?
Walstraat I do not think you are suffering.Your ego might be doing a flip.The new civilisation will not be created by words alone.The mind can only work for anything new, if it is used only when it is needed, to interpret messages that are coming from deeper dimensions than the third. Aum Mani Padme Hum is just fine for now.

What are you talking about Istvan? I was just having some fun...because I identify both with Euan and Flemming....since I'm going throught the same thing...since I always feel a buzz to share my art...I have been putting that on my blodge when I'm out of words....perhaps you don't understand my humor...anyway blessings my lad....PS
you are right on one thing my ego is way,way, too large...
