I have a thought, thereunder I was.

Do you think?

Do you think…or do you have thoughts?
Do you work…or did you remember?

Some silencing

Thinking takes some silencing.

Gum on our shoe

This idea from Bohm (it is in my dictionary too) that thoughts are the product of thinking has me this morning. These are accustomed by-ways that move much faster than thinking. Thinking is work. Thoughts get in the way, try to pull us away from thinking. Thoughts are much easier to navigate than thinking.

Thoughts and ideas are in the air, they travel from one to another, take us over. This is part of the meaning of culture and the source of its power.

Can we free ourselves to think? Can we see where we are caught in some sticky substance, like gum on our shoe, but stronger and on both shoes? Can we suspend thought long enough to think?

Quickly and deeply the groove is cut. Even this one.
