Well I haven’t blogged in quite awhile.  My last blog post was rather emotional and I was just done.  Whenever I went to blog about the mundane things in my life, I worried that someone would read my blog and say what a dumb thing to blog about.  Joe told me it did not matter what I blogged about, my blog was for me –

You know how concepts sometimes go in one ear and out the other?  Well I really do not think that the concepts go out the other ear, they just fail to reach the processing center.   This leads to light bulb moments.  Those moments where the light bulb goes on and all is right with the world.  I’ll explain what I mean.

Say the destination the “concept processing center” is where the concepts need to get to for us to fully understand them.  Brain cells take these concepts from the senses to the processing center.  However sometimes the brain cell gets rerouted and the concept they are carrying – their “luggage” – gets lost.  Hence the lost luggage compartment of our brain.  Concepts just lie in wait going round and round on the shiny thing waiting for their owners to come and claim them.  When the particular brain cell that has the right baggage claim check retrieves their luggage from the conveyor belt and actually takes it to the processing center, we “get” it.  The light bulb goes on, we slap our forheads with the palm of our hand and go, “now why didn’t I think of that sooner?”

The light bulb moment.  We’ve all had them, and if you haven’t had one, go away.  My light bulb moment came yesterday while I was reading about health insurance.  This is my light bulb moment – my blog is for me and who really cares if someone thinks that an entry is stupid.

All together now…


There.  Doesn’t everyone feel a lot better?
