I just want to preface this post by saying my blog is normally about my photography and I signed up for writing 101 to help with my story and descriptions based on my photos. Below has nothing to do with photography whatsoever, just a scrambled morning mind trying to elucidate thoughts on paper. This may happen periodically over the next month when assignments come to hand… just be WARNED 🙂

MUSINGS OF A SCRAMBLED MIND
and then I remembered the sound of the robot from “Lost in Space” warning danger, danger Will Robinson, and then finally I could hear the sounds of bats flying out uncluttering my mind hopefully.
So these are the rambling thoughts of mine without thinking of what I’m going to write about. Scary isn’t it? I am lucky in that I can type pretty quickly so any thoughts I have are down on virtual paper without having to concentrate on engineering my fingers to do anything… its totally a brain to keyboard kind of thing that should help me….in theory.
Funny I usually can babble away on this thing without much thought but when faced with an assignment that asks just that, I am stumbling. I could go back and think about some ideas I’ve had and make it sound somewhat coherent and intelligible but that would be cheating wouldn’t it??
I might go back to Lost in Space – does anyone remember that show. Is there anyone out there roughly my age that would have experienced the wonderful lack of visual effects that we see today, dodgy stage props and really unconvincing alien life forms. But you know what we loved that show and tuned in every episode. I know they revamped it into a movie a few years back and I watched that with interest but imagine now having that show on TV, like the original, same corny lines and actors but with the new fandangled visual effects we have today. Would it be better, probably to the newer generation but for us oldies I think maybe not…
How I got onto Lost in Space I have no idea, no literally accolades here I have to say just a blurb on sci-fi in the 60s on TV. Wow the mind is a really strange and ?wonderful place. I thought I would come up with some great knowledge and impart my expert writing skills with big words and profound thoughts…. no not a one!!!
What next will I think of I ponder…. time for the creaking vault to close and the sirens in my head to go back to sleep blissfully until the next episode… stay tuned!
