Distracted Explanations (from a Gone Away Mind)

I go through stages in the way that I approach the world.  I know that is a vague statement.  Let me be more specific.  I often spend a few months gathering information, just listening, reading, drinking and letting shit roll together in my mind.  Following that will usually be a catalyzing moment, often inspired by a creative action of a friend or a blog article that makes me realize that I'm not making things of my own.  I grow restless and start writing a lot.  My info intake drops shortly and I push as much out of my brain as possible.  It's like giving birth, except completely different.  Then, when I run low on material to dump onto a page, I start to get back into trolling available sources of knowledge again.

Hmm...what's the point of writing this down?  I don't know.  Maybe I'm trying to change something about myself?  Maybe I just wanted to think about it?  

...Ah, the TV's ambient noise and light is drawing my attention.  I need to learn to turn this damn box off sometimes.  But now is not that time.  I'll be back sometime soon.
