What wierd things fly around your head when you think too much?

What are YOUR internal tangents? What puts your brain in overtime and make you want it to shut off?

Haha, Steve!
That makes me feel better. Sounds similar to what happens to me.

Beauty, or maybe people's ability to find beauty in most anything. To me art no matter what form is fleeting, I rarely write down words to poem, notes to a song, nor to a photograph things often. Though I constantly think of poetry, compose a tune on what ever instrument is handy, and stop and see beauty in the world (sort of a snapshot of the mind) but it's fleeting, to me it wouldn't mean as much if it was stored, cataloged, or else wised administrated/controled. Like a Tiger is beautiful in it's natual enviorment, but when in a cage the animal is still beautiful, but not as much somehow.

Is my job a waste of my time and my life? Why do I keep wondering about success and failure? It's my life, right? Should I get a PhD or keep selling my soul for the big bucks while it lasts? Should I be learning Japanese or polishing up my French? Why don't I ever find time to play the guitar? Did the dog walker take care of my dog today? Do I really want kids? MSFT: sell or hold? Is this the right girl? Or, was it the one I broke up with 9 years ago? Wouldn't it be nice to have coffee with her and see if she is still insane or just to see how a decade has changed her? Is there such a thing as the right one? Or, just a lifetime of compromise? I'm with Nina Berberova when she says that what she wants from life is MORE. Is that nuts? When will I go to Morocco? Or what about Peru?

That is pretty typical and usually combined with the words of the last song playing on the CD when I got out of the car.

Actually, my online "journal" is a perfect answer to this question.

Can't wait to meet you tonight—it's been a while since we communicated.

I think about bills. How am I going to pay them? How should I split up this paycheck in order to cover them? What can I buy instead of paying the bills! (Naughty!!) I think about whether moving in with my fiance is such a good idea...it's soooo scary :( Then, it's usually on to such things as, what should I make for dinner and can I really get away with NOT doing dishes tonight? Decisions, decisions...

I echo many of Steve's thoughts. I think about waste/worth/importance of various things in my life. I think about how I don't feel as much as I used to. I wonder if that is due to natural maturation or desensitization. I think about how life is changing...I think about the sincerity or insincerity of others.
