The Internet Vs. Creativity

Next on my internet list for the day is. ‘write blog post’. I love writing blog posts and ideas for one have been flowing though me since yesterday. Needless to say, I have been patiently awaiting this moment. I have completed all my internet tasks — been on Soundcloud, Facebook, checked all my emails, connected with people and now I am ready to write. I love sharing my ideas and people seem to like the way I think (feedback states I am quite unconventional and entertaining — yet educational).

A slight oversight — I didn’t write the stories down as they came through me. They have been so strong and clear. So… Unforgettable. I simply knew the ideas would be here when I sat down at my laptop. But this doesn’t seem to be the case. My tasks are done but — I have been sitting in front of my computer on the internet for an hour and a half now. Excited as I may be, the stories and thoughts are not flowing through me as they have been up to, oh, I don’t know, an hour and a half ago. They seem to have retracted.

This is not expected. I be patient and sit with stillness and breath healthy breathes. I close my eyes and take a moment to allow those stories¬†to flow back. Waiting… Sitting… The ideas are no longer breezing through me as they have been all night and into today. Try as I might, my creative flow is… Gone.

It’s as though a wall has come down or perhaps half of me has gone to sleep… As a result of being in front of a screen for so long, and having disconnected from my mind-body-spirit, an edginess and little remnants of frustration softly reverberate¬†through my cells. In one sitting, my vibrant, stored reserves of creative thoughts have fleeted and my mind, which was once flowing with ideas, has crumbled to a dry, powdered dust…

Perhaps, I was brought here to speak of the all important issue of internet? We have all been on our devices enough for today… Let’s turn them off and go outdoors! I’m heading to Golden Ears!
