Okay, I realize I haven't done posts for awhile and even though I just finished a new one, I decided to write a second one as well, for my loyal fans who have been deprived for about two weeks.
I'm going to school right now. It takes me about 30 min. to get to school. So I have that time to think to myself, and occasionally talk to myself. Sometimes I'll just crank up the radio to my favorite stations and sing along, but other times I'm just thinking, pondering, and imagining. I actually enjoy it.
Today I was thinking about the fears I had as a child. Of course I was afraid of death like I think most children are. I remember being grateful for living across the street from the EMS and the fire department. I remember feeling bad for people who lived out in the country because they would probably die before anyone could get to them, yet I thought, that's too bad for them but I'm lucky because I'll be rescued before I die. This is what I thought about today because I saw a fire truck and some police drive past me.
Other times I think about projects I can do. I plan things and get excited. If only I could write things down while I was driving.
Other times a song will remind me of something. I'll start daydreaming about whatever and then next thing you know I just went through an intersection. I look in the mirror to make sure it was a green light. Luckily it always has been so my auto pilot is still working. Usually when I am thinking about a memory I decide I need to call the person the memory was with. That's when I start daydreaming about the conversation I'm going to have with that person when I get home. Then the next thing you know, I'm pulling in the drive-way.
It so much fun driving by myself. So what do you do when you're driving somewhere all alone?

I sing with the radio, day dream, make lists of upcoming events and things pertaining to them. Sometimes pray.

When I went to college I had a little tape recorder in the car and I would say Talks into it. Then after home I would write them up. I still have those talks.

The recorder was also used in school to tape lecture so I could rehear it as I read my notes.

Try it.
