My brain today is a clear, shallow pond, perhaps with a few fluttery goldfish drifting by (think Fantasia). I’m trying have deep thoughts, but they’re eluding me. I think the problem is that I spent chunks of my weekend alternately reviewing documents and trying to bulldoze my son into doing his 6th grade science project, with a little laundry thrown in on the side. Between the one and the other, my brain got deleted.
I’m taking steps to remedy the problem. In 30 minutes, I leave to have lunch with Don Quixote, which is always a scintillating and revitalizing experience. If that doesn’t get some synapses firing, there may be no hope for me.
Until then — Yes, it’s Open Thread time. Have at it, since I’m sure all of you are showing much more brain wave activity than I am. Also, feel free to chime in with interesting book suggestions. I always enjoy those.
