Resting my thinker

I would love to give credit to the artist
 but I am not sure where I found this.




I have not been writing much. Sometimes I just don't have anything to say. Or maybe I do but I really don't have anything to share. It is okay to keep somethings to yourself and it is okay to keep to yourself too. I think sometimes I keep too much to myself and I don't make contact with my friends. Do they stop being my friends? I hope not. I hate that I am like this but I am. I always have been and I just don't seem to want to change that about myself. Some days I just think. I just think the whole day away and I am not even aware that I did it. At least I am not aware until the sun sets and I realize the day has changed into evening.

I do this when I paint too. However, it is different because I don't actually know what it was I was thinking about. Perhaps I wasn't thinking at all. Perhaps I was in the zone. Resting my thinker.

I think painting, like many other forms of art, has a meditative fringe benefit. Your mind rests, goes vacant for a while, and ultimately it restores itself. Rest as much as you need. I'm sure it's good for you.

Hahaha. I so relate. I'm a novelist. So when writing I tend to think in grand schemes, having conversations in my head with characters so real to me that when passing where they fictitiously live I almost think they'll pop out and say 'HI!'.

You're not alone. If you don't give up on the rest of us daydreamers then no worries. ;~D

I think I envy you. When asked recently what I most feared, I answered with no hesitation: 'Having nothing to do'.
But never fear, there is always something awaiting my attention. If there wasn't I am sure I could create something! To sit and dream devoid of guilt... how wonderful!

I'm the exact same way. I remain cloistered most of the time.

My way of working is quite different. I create frenzy for about ten minutes, then leave. I do a bit of gardening, or walk the dogs, then another ten minute frenzy. How many frenzy's per day is a mystery.... maybe just one or two!

Oh, and I usually think about pretty girls (at least I try to).

That painting is really seems to be a master-piece of art....I admit that the way of working is very variable amongst the painter but I like the way of sitting calm and just engross yourself in imagination to produce finest creativity of painting...

This is really a nice and informative, containing all information and also has a great impact on the new artist. Thanks for sharing it.

Thesis writing involves several processes which makes the entirety of the experience both exciting and challenging. From choosing a researchable topic that has not been done by other students and eventually narrowing it down to become a uniquely original work to soliciting the help of a research supervisor and in embarking on data collection and writing the paper, these are some of the tasks that almost all undergraduate and graduate students working on a thesis consider as stressful. In spite of the many challenges that students have to put up with, undeniably, the thesis project is an important project-based and challenge-based educational experience that helps in building character and in preparing students for their chosen career. One particular skill that is indispensable and which perhaps is unknowingly cultivated among students as they work on a thesis is the ability to work with a group of superiors.
