A Life Lyrical

Such a classic girl, gives her man a great idea
Hears you tell your friends,
“Hey man, why don’t you listen to my great idea!”

– Jane’s Addiction, “Classic Girl”

I get a lot of really great ideas. And then I think about them.

A lot.

I think and I think some more. I take notes.

I journal. I reflect.

I talk about it with my husband.

I talk about it with my friends.

I talk about it with my “accountability partner.”

I let it simmer in the background as I go about my time: dreaming, thinking, scheming.

And sometimes, I tell no one at all.
