It may be somewhat ironic but I am a lousy chess player. Why ironic? Chess requires one to constantly look ahead several moves to help determine what the next - or rather current - move should be. I am an inveterate multitasker and nearly always have several (too many) irons in the fire as it were. It comes from the fact that I bore easily - so I am always pondering options. It has occurred to me that this can and probably does prevent me from focusing on the occasional subject as clearly as possible. Ever wonder why my LBC posts tend to be short? I've said i n the past and will repeat here - I look at the topic the morning it is due and then begin writing. It's all very free-form and off the cuff. I have developed the habit of being able to say what I want without much if any revision. That's because I am usually already thinking about the next task while writing. Also - when I choose a song to add to a posy there is no deep thought process - I just have a vast catalog of songs stored away and picking one for a topic is relatively easy. Eclectic tastes in music do help I suppose.
Other odd habits?
There are more but I have things to do - like work - and as I am planning on retiring soon I'd best get some stuff done. That's it for layers of onion skin from the shack closet today. Now I get to read what the others had to say - shuld be fun!
