When I’m feeling out of sorts, reflective, sad or when I just need to reaffirm my faith in the world I sometimes pull out my Robert Fulghum books and randomly read - skipping between one book and another - until I find my mind bubbling with ideas of its own, sparked from something in the book - or until contented I sit back not needing to say or think anything, well, at least for the immediate future.

Henry feared his best ideas somehow drained out from his head while he slept, pooling in the back of his neck until finally he would sweat them out onto his pillow, which was always cold and damp when he woke up in the morning.

I keep forgetting that I want to start making notes as soon as I think of an idea.
