“What are you thinking?” this little block on top of my facebook page asks me every time I open it. I never took it seriously, I thought it trivial and impertinent. Today I did not see, much less read the question, I heard a shout: “hey, David, don’t you ever have a thought” and I felt offended and embarrassed. Of course I do, I responded to myself, I am always thinking, ruminating, soliciting and assimilating ideas; contemplating the surroundings , deliberating controversies, figuring alternatives, constructing convictions, questioning assumptions, rationalizing actions and behaviors, dreaming -day and night, experiencing emotions -happiness, sadness, compassion, indifference, concern, apathy, pride, shame, lucidity, confusion- meditating and pondering on the meaning of it all. YES I am thinking! and I am going to attempt to express it the best I can with my limited talent for clear and concise expression.
YES I am thinking! I am always thinking! It is just difficult to translate that process into words. But I am going to attempt to communicate it the best I can with my limited talent for clear and concise expression. So, yes, this block is going to be filled more often answering the impertinent question. It will be written sometimes in English y otras veces en español. TO BE CONTINUED – Continuará…
Well, that is what I wrote last night for my facebook. Then came the frustration: it was too long, so I had to break it up into three parts in order to post it. Then I thought: if I want to attempt to express what I am thinking, how can I do it?
I am a Cuban bloggers freak. I follow over 20 blogs from Cuba on a regular basis, including, of course, Yoani Sanchez’ Generation Y daily. Therefor a Blog was the answer and Brain Ruminations was born.
