Mind Fog

003(4)What is stopping you doing what you want to do?

Mind fog is confusing stuff and its very easy to get lost in. When I try to evaluate what it is that holds me back from doing the things I want to do, my first thoughts are:

  • Time
  • Fear
  • Energy
  • Perfectionism

I am sure they all hold a place in the ranking. But ultimately…

I blame the fog

Hours, weeks, even months can pass in the fog (let us pray, not years!).

While in the fog, you will find yourself fumbling around all the while staying in the exact same place. Your energy will drain more and more rapidly the longer you remain there.

 What is mind fog?

It could be considered  a form of subconscious procrastination. The fog is a cluttered and distracted state of mind. The absence of awareness, stillness and peace.

In the business of a mind brimming over without conscious substance, the path gets lost and the goal is shrouded in mist and difficulty.

 Mind fog inducing situations include

  • Television watching
  • Video gaming – especially the endless leveling up drama
  • Checking on the pantry (snack time again?)
  • Cigarette smoking
  • General bustle and the illusion of things happening (when really nothing is)

Stir them all together and let it soak in the fridge overnight. I pour honey or agave over the top in the morning (more sweetness!)


I’ve never been big on colour

I thought I might try something new

Since I’ve never been big on colour – I bought a pack of coloured pencils. I feel like a child again.

Not in a sweet way – in a gawky how do I do this it doesn’t work like I thought it would kind of way.

The first thing I learned, is not to add colour until the sketch is right. This one needed several alterations which it did not receive. So no… the subject is not taking a poo!

Poem: Bill

Take this Bill

For better or worse

Until one dies

Account to the

Worship that

Bill implies


Notes of his tune

Play on your fears

Convinced you invest

Will, means, desire

In shallow loves chest


Show no interest

Give no credit

to the claims

Merger brings

Prosperity, gains


Bill will withdraw

Annul, divide

All you have left

Miss spent time

On petty theft
