Is it possible? For one to think too much. To be obsessed with thought. Or is it a good thing?  To be captivated by thought. To spend an entire day. Pondering. Reflecting. Musing. Whatever one chooses to call it. Having a constantly active mind. Might be a malady, too. An affliction. The opposite of dementia. One becomes overwhelmed by thought. Maybe it depends. On the nature of one’s thoughts. I theorize. That for the most part. My thoughts are far more therapeutic than crazy. It’s fun. Downright pleasurable. To mull over anything that comes to mind. To make something of it. To create. Some degree of significance. To a random thought.  I like to wrestle with thoughts. To milk them. To go with the flow. --Jim

I’m musing. When I stimulate my own mind. I’m not obligated to crank up other minds. I don’t necessarily muse. To get a response. From an audience. From anyone. Better to just let a thought flow. Every which way.  When you read a musing. Respond. If you want to. But often. It’s better to merely let a musing drift. Off into the yonder.  Into far-off space. If you are touched. By a thought. Well, then allow yourself to be touched. Thing is. If 100 people read the thought. They might well take it in 100 different ways. That’s their right. Some may go off in a joyful direction. Others may fume. And become angry. Interesting, isn’t it?  How we differentiate. How we categorize thoughts.  Into what’s appropriate and inappropriate. Some societies are heavily censored. Others believe in a free flow of ideas. I’m with the latter. --Jim
