A Predictable Robin
In most years I would have already given you several posts featuring robins, but this is actually my first robin post of the year. I've seen plenty of them, but I haven't even taken their pictures up until now. It has been all because of the medicine I take for my head. It takes the pain away, but also stifles almost all of my creativity.
So, why am I writing a lot now all of a sudden? I'm embarrassed to say it, but it's because of pure laziness. I needed to refill my prescription when I went into town to go to the grocery store, but I forgot. When I realized what had happened I just didn't feel like going back.
After a few days my head began to clear up. The good thing is that the pain isn't as bad as before, so I'm going to limit how much of the medicine I take to see if that works better. Neither extreme situation is tolerable for me. I don't want the pain, but I also don't want the frustration I had while fully on this medicine. So I'm going to try to be somewhere in the middle.
At least now I can write about this robin and the words just flow right out. I can't even describe how much I missed being able to do that. My usual writing style is that I just think and type at the same time. Everything that goes onto the page is the instant thought that I just had. I try not to take much time to think about things. I just type my first thoughts. It works well that way.
That's how I can have my first pictures of a beautiful American robin, and then not actually say much about him. I'm really still thinking about him, but there are so many more thoughts coming through that I have to write them first. I hope it's just as good this way. Talk to you later.
