What's with brains, anyhow?

In particular, what's with my brain?

Last night, as I was snuggled up with my sweetheart and drifting off to sleep, I found the perfect line for inclusion in the biography I'm writing. Seriously, it was just exactly right.

I didn't get up and write it down, because of the comfortable snuggling position.

You can probably guess the next part.

Of course you can.

Woke up this morning and I know what the concept behind the quote was, but the perfect wording has completely disappeared. Everything I try to write on the subject goes CLUNK instead of WHIR.

The little man in the upstairs filing room (which is how I think of my brain, often - he scoots around on his office chair to pull things out of the file cabinets) seems to have misplaced that particular scrap of paper.

Perhaps it is time to take a walk, in hopes of rediscovering the line.

Oh, I am SO sorry. I have learned, and now have notebooks on my bedside, notebook in my purse, notebook on my desk, notebook in the kitchen, as well as several white boards. It doesn't pay not to get up. What I do if I really don't want to move is say it out loud. That does help some.

Re: Ughhhhh.
Morris is appalled that I didn't get up, but really, I was so very comfortable. And so sure that I'd remember it, since it was simple. And really, it is a simple notion, and I have the right idea, but it's the exact wording that I am lacking.

I think I got something close to it back this afternoon.

I too keep a notebook by my bedside. Sometimes I don't even turn on the light, just grab a pen and write. There are many mornings I can barely decipher what I've written, but often times it's enough of a nudge to help me remember.

i used to do that, and need to do it again.

Trust the little man - he doesn't have the best filing system, but he'll find it. Or he'll find one better.
