Cyclothymic Cister

Before the Internet, I used to lie in bed at night composing thoughts as if I were talking to a wise entity. (An actual face never came to mind). I would re-word and re-phrase the thoughts till they were crystal clear. Now I can blog. And hopefully, there are a lot of wise people with real faces out there who might just comment back.

I did a little Internet research and found this:

So, it turns out I was right to be concerned. There were a few ideas I had considered posting, that could develop into lengthier essays that may have potential elsewhere, but I waited until I did the above research. Now I'm glad I waited.

Just thought some of you writers out there would like to know, if you didn't already.
