Here's what Payson has to say about my entry:

The whales have big gentle brains and along with the incredible Baja desert landscape, ours will rest and come more into balance.

We deserve all this and having more peace, not worrying about how much we do or've done amazing things all your life, even your teaching helping young minds/brains....and your writing...well that's an offering to the gods...

I've worked hard on getting this trip together for us, with all the details, now let us let life the land of slow down, maƱana Mexico.....

They too have the same Indian expression....A ver....we'll see.

Jai Ho Baja trip and honoring the great leviathans in San Ignacio Lagoon....

Have you ever felt this way? Do share your experiences here, it will make the rest of us feel better that we have this in common! The brain, or at least my brain, is a very mysterious and unpredictable thing over which I have no control. Sometimes it will spew out ideas fast and furiously and sometimes it is entirely unsparky, like the keys of one of those old electric typewriters without electricity, unable and unwilling to make connections. I'd like to know why this happens, but other than the high possibility that it is resting, there are no explanations. I am at its mercy and cannot rely on it. I can only surrender to it when it is behaving this way, let it be, and go do something else that doesn't require it, mainly clean and organize, physical things like walking and exercise, cooking and eating. Perhaps this is a good thing now, since I am leaving for a three week vacation to Baja, Mexico, a kayaking trip with friends, and then to meet the whales at San Ignatio. I don't even know the spelling, since Payson takes care of all our traveling details. I can only hope my brain comes along with me.
