The human brain is a crazy thing. You look at something and automatically your brain fires off thoughts and feelings about it. I like to keep tabs on these thoughts and feelings my brain comes up with but specifically about people. These people could be my crazy relatives (on the Thompson side specifically), the older woman with the extensive makeup ringing me up at Fred Meyer, the man who sits at the bus stop on Vermont and waves at every car that passes by, anyone.
I'm starting a new blog series called "What I think about when I think of you." It's formatted as letters written by "yours truly" (me) and addressed to "Anonymous" (anyone I'm thinking about at the moment). I'm keeping the receiver anonymous because I don't want to share any information about our relationship they're not comfortable with (that is if they even figure out it's about them) but also because it gives the series an air of mystery and who doesn't need a little intrigue to spice up their lives? These letters are coming straight from the inner workings of my brain, thoughts that come to my mind either when I see these people or when they randomly come to my mind after past encounters. I'm describing relationships, life lessons, things I admire about people, what I see on their surface and beneath their skin and bones. These are the words of my mind, not the receivers. The things I say are just my side of the story, fragments of my everyday emotions. I don't mean to offend anyone, only share a creative piece describing something within my brain.
I've said before this blog is like a public journal. This is where that becomes specifically prevalent because I'm putting into words the things I see and know about people in my life. These letters will have more meaning to me than they probably will have for you but I still think you could find something interesting in them. Maybe one of them is even about you...
