I don’t think my brain ever stops. It’s constantly working through a problem or brooding over some dumb situation or daydreaming. Today it mulled over the possibility of submitting a story for the next Oral Fixation show, thought about the essay I have yet to write for a scholarship to a writing conference, the RFP I need to write for my grad class, and thought about a nap. I also found myself thinking about taking a real vacation, one that’s by myself and not with a group or a packed itinerary. I also kept coming back to my mom’s cataract surgery that’s next week and how relieved I am that she’s finally taking care of it.
I really need an off switch for this thing.
