I guess that one of the fun things about being me right is that, for some goofy reason that I've yet to comprehend, I'm no longer drowning in my own imagination.

Instead of each and every action revealing million of possible reactions in my head, I only see one or two steps ahead. This might be, some could theorize, because things are so complicated that one or two steps is all my mind can conjure.

But I don't think that's what's going on here. I think that what's happening is that I only have to go one or two steps for something good to happen.

I'm that close.

No longer does my mind need to imagine generation after untold generation of unhatched chickens before I find a scenario I can live with.

Sorry about throwing the chicken metaphor back out there. I just couldn't think of anything better on such short notice.

This is pretty cool. I actually find myself enjoying the act of being me. That hasn't happened in a long time.

I also can't seem to think more then one or maybe two steps ahead. Nah, one is as far ahead as I can project at this time. Must be cause I'm getting old. When I played chess I think I could maybe get up too 5 moves ahead but better living through chemistry killed too many brain cells. Is there any hope for me in the future? I do think your site is very helpful and so do others that I have shared your information with. I have not plagiarized you but posted a link to your site.

It's been a lot easier, lately, than it used to be trying to juggle millions of possibility threads in my head at all times.

If you haven't left a comment here before, you may need to be approved before your comment will appear. Until then, it won't appear on the entry. Thanks for waiting.

I'll pretty much approve anything except SPAM comments, or comments that clearly have no purpose except to piss me off, or comments that are insulting to a previous commenter.

Use anything you want for your name and email address. I think it has to at least look like a valid email address though.
