It is suggested that the screen of the mind can never be blank. Unconsciously maybe, but I do believe that those window moments are precious episodes when the conscious screen is definitely blank, those moments I enjoy greatly.
Sea Gazing 😎😎😎
Sadly it seems those precious moments are becoming increasingly rare for many, and the appreciation of the benefits of a blank screen is declining.
Perhaps there might be an app for that… 😗 😉 😂
This is great. The thought that our greatest insights many come when we stop trying to be purposeful and respect the creative potential of reverie is refreshing in a world where purpose seems to define everything …. even the doing of very little!
The potential of daydreaming reminds me of a lovely story about a friend who is a Spanish teacher. This woman truly adores her job. Her exacting standards are as legendary as her hard work and great results. Her classroom, however, is a daydreamers delight where the walls are festooned with posters of cities in Spain and Central and South America. Each place is somewhere she has been on her travels. The ancient city of Salamanca, the Roman Aqueduct in Segovia and the colourful food market in Barcelona hang beside images of Machu Picchu, Lake Titicaca and the Mayan ruins in Mexico and Guatemala. While she understands that not everyone will be interested in the finer points of Spanish irregular verbs, everyone can glance at the wonderful photos and dream. Even the view from the window gives glimpses of the changing colours of the region’s mountains.
On returning to her classroom after the summer holidays one year she noticed the windows had a film of foggy plastic placed on them half way up, just enough to block the view from even the tallest boys. You might think this would appeal to a teacher who likes the students to work hard and pay attention? On the contrary, she exclaimed, ” Are the kids never to have an original thought in their lives? Are they never to gaze out of the window and dream? Orders were issued, plastic removed and normal service was restored…dreaming included.
I love it – you’ve said it all – everything that needs saying on this topic!
Window gazers unite!
Preferably whilst sipping a glass of something that tickles your fancy…..
