Spot on my road, speed past it, lose that thought train completely if I don’t stop right then, in THAT instant to record it in some fashion. Sure, my memory might be poorer than it used to be. I’d like to think my abilities in other areas have improved – better judgement perhaps, learning-slow like a slow-cooker to extract better flavour from tough things.
Capturing those thoughts seems more difficult. I find myself wondering if it was ‘really such a good idea after all’,maybe that’s why it didn’t stick. Or maybe the next fleeting thought outdistanced it. I’ve learned to keep pad, pen and keyboards handy for that reason.
The thing about fleeting thought, is that it is fleeting.
What is the fleeting thought – here one moment, completely gone the next?
