Makes My Head Spin

Headless at Olen's Ice Box (1)Blank.

Empty.

Nada.

A veritable tabula rasa.

The mind free and clear.

Awaiting the impressions of new experiences.

Ah, those were the days.

Now, it seems, there are too many impressions.

Too much to keep track of.

Too much input.

Too much stimuli.

Too much busyness.

Too many appointments.

Too many obligations.

And that’s just for pre-K through 6th Grade.

So much to do.

And study.

And learn.

So much to accomplish.

So much to have.

And to hold.

Wordsworth said it.

“The world is too much with us.”

And just think how long ago that was.

Now it’s a whole other world.

And, boy, is it ever with us
