Metaphorical Miscarriage

I've said before that the shower is my thinking place.  It's also the place that I always came up with the best blog post ideas.  Then all that went away.

More and more in the last few weeks/months, I, once again, have blog post ideas come into my head in the shower.  It's like the moment of conception for a new baby. There's a life to my thoughts that's outside of me.  It grows and develops in my head for the duration of my shower and, as I get out, I always want to run to the computer and start writing.


If I don't wash my face and blow-dry my hair as soon as I get out of the shower, my hair dries funny and I sometimes forget to wash my face.  So, I always do that first.  

And my baby miscarries.  Every. Time.  

This was not the intended post for today.  

But it's something.
