Hey there, Nell,
Could we have a cool glass of water
before I respond?... Thanks!
...Look, this whole process of capturing thoughts in a net
is much more involved than you seem to perceive it to be.
First of all, ideas do not just calmly line up outside my door and wait for an entrance nod.
Often they just plow right in assuming ownership for a moment,
until others shove them out of the way.
Secondly, this neat plan we have “finalized” is all well and good for an ideal,
but who has time to implement all this dragging up of old brain files
on each subject area , comparing it to scripture?
Your thoughts whirl around and fight one another for dominance in my vestibule
and I can’t bring order!
Thirdly, you are deciding which will remain by feeding them.
Yes, it is you, dear Nellie. You say to me, “Oh that one sounds good. Let’s let it stay.”
Or “This one is lonely, find some companions in there who think as it does.”
Fourthly, the “delicious” thoughts
you’ve kept come down to welcome renegades
immediately, dance around with them
and refuse to listen to me.
Fifthly, you need to be much more stern, now!
There, I’ve said my piece in peace.
