The Use of Talking

There is no end of things in the heart.

As I Was(n’t) Saying . . .

One of the reasons (and there are more than a few) why I’m such a sporadic blogger is my inability to remember all the brilliant insights that come to me in subway stations or strolls down the street. I’d really like to write about that, I think, and I continue on convinced that at last I’ve found something worthwhile to say. As soon as I get home I’m going to open the laptop and get it down in pixels.

But by the time I get home, reality intervenes. The open computer is too seductive, beckoning me to take a long and exhausting sprint from blog to blog and message board to message board. Too tired to do anything, I promise myself to get to it first thing in the morning, but by the time morning comes, I’ve forgotten about it entirely.

I had a thought in the subway station last night on the way home from mass. I know it was something about faith; it struck me as a good way to get to some of the issues that have preoccupied me lately. If it comes back to me, I’ll let you know.
