Almost every morning I wake up with thoughts running through my head. Often the internal monologue drifts into the formulation of something like an essay but it rarely gets written down.
In fact the exit from bed is often prompted my more immediate physiological needs and the resolution of major political and philosophical issues is deferred in favour of matters of less global significance such as whether or not to go to the gym before breakfast.
One of the reasons I started "blogging" was to try and capture these imagined gems (and others which come to me at other inopportune times like when driving or riding my bike). But in practice my blogging has been more in the reactive mode which originally led to the term "weblog" as a log of web activity to refer to a record of annotated links to web resources. Time for a change perhaps.
