Corks of reason pop out when the Real Thing appears & other unpinnings : Chronicle 28

“A man who is weak is a man who simply has a lack of love”. Is it true?

Decades ago a friend of mine bought a puppet in a store, in Europa. Once she chose it, someone said “You bought death”.

Corks of reason pop out when the Real Thing appears.

“Put on a happy face”, “Keep smiling”. I think it’s very strange to say that; if you’re not happy, you just don’t “put on a happy face”, and I don’t find any French idiom about that. What madness is that? Smile “on order”, naturally, for the picture, and you look like a fool…

Smile when you smile inside…

“Dans la solitude, on sent très bien le danger de la folie” : in solitude, one feels very well the danger of lunacy.

A certain silence arises from the other’s absence.

What do you do, when you see someone you like… rushing into a new project which you sense and foresee will be dangerous or a disaster? You shut up. One does not ask for your opinion : just shut your mouth.

They should invent a “people weather forecast”. “Today, people are obnoxious idiots. Go outside only if necessary”. “Tomorrow, people will be slow and dumb. Stay calm if you have to go outside”. “Don’t go around Quivira today, there are drunk bored couples everywhere”.

Write the storiy of Three Cursed Syisters. Eaych one has her own way of beying cursed. By what? Sex & Love, of couyrse!

How to decurse a curse?

A Folleti is a kind of Italian impish imp with a large red hat. He comes to comfort a little girl who is crying in the shade, on a porch behind a house. He invents magic tricks and a beautiful waltz. Then, she laughs. A chaffinch is singing somewhere.

Creation as association of ideas. Of course. Which ideas? How do you connect? What could be a adjuvant?

These days I read dozens of letters from the nineties. Forgetting the past is maybe the hugest mistake of humanity. Thanks to these letters, I’m see ideas and scintillations growing from the soil. Forgetting the past, the child we were, our siblings, our paths, hesitations, lovers, dialogs, mistakes and joys. Come on!

Ideas and feelings are alive in your head and are not frozenprinted : they blossom, de-blossom and re-blossom. Constantly evolving… If they don’t, they are called Pinned Mindsets. How to unpin?

We create our reality, our brain is a living forest breathing informations, dealing with reality in a complex layered dance. What kind of dance is it?

Thanks for reading!

Overthinking Ways

The memory is cursed with what hasn’t happened, says Marguerite Duras, and that’s a good example of overthinking. In fact, it’s the seed of a whole tree!

What are ways of overthinking? What are the subjects? The past (what it’s been, what it could have been). The future(s). About what you did or will do (or say). And I’ll stop it here : you perfectly know your ways of overthinking!

What are the ways OUT of this curse (which it is, right?). Most books show these paths :

  1. Mindfulness
  2. Dare and do something

Voilà! You just saved a bunch of money! Put these books back in the shelves!

1 Mindfulness is a way to focus on the now (let the past sleep/just enable the future) – well, you can try!

2 Acting-Doing has many good effects, from “keeping you busy” to “stop thinking a bit”, by way of “changing what I can”… instead of thinking about it.

Tool :

Of course you can use another path, which could be “smart overthinking”, taking a wheel (if you find it) to drive it somewhere else, to tame it, to use it, to link it with others – or with books (which is the same), to divide it up like a sheaf, to make it a dance, to fight it, to… What about you?

You go girl! Merci et bonne route! Thanks for reading.
