Post About Nothing

I have nothing to say.

Ive sat and stared at the screen for a good 45 minutes trying to drum up of something substantial, incredible, funny or reflective for me to write on. Of course various thoughts came in, but none deemed worthy for a whole post in itself. I thought I’d do a potpourri, but my mind is a tangled mess of thoughts. Not unlike the wires that form a slithering snake pit behind the TV and the music system.

So yes, I have nothing.

But you know, nothing is a great place to be.

I wish my mind had nothing in it.

No, like not asking to be empty, but asking it to be filled with nothing. There *is* a difference.

Or maybe there isn’t. Am as confused as you are getting reading this :)

So, remember how the world came about from nothing? Like the sound OM, and there was vaccum and there was nothing, and bam! God rubbed his hands in glee and decided to create us. Yeah.

What?

Oh ok, fine! The Big bang Theory happened and then there was something out of nothing!

Happy?

so, either way, you see how Something gets created out of Nothing?

Pretty cool eh, when you think about it?

That’s what creation is. Creativity is really about creating something from nothing. Nothing but a spark. A spark of thought, a sound, a flash or BOOM, something happens and there is life. All that requires is a small ignition. A thought that can string a whole bunch of words, and they make sense, all of it. You just have to squint your eyes, tilt your head or take a step back and look at what just happened and it would all make sense.

In the large big picture I mean.

Like this post.

I just wrote 300 odd words on nothing.

That’s what writing is all about. That you make that effort and start hammering words out. Don’t wonder dont plot don’t project, just do. Works the same with most others. If it worked for the woodpecker and for the otter and for the ants and the relentless Einstein (who incidentally finally cracked that damn light bulb only after 200 some tries, or maybe it was 2000, who’s counting?) it would work for you and me and well, it worked for Seinfeld! ..and didnt he run it for 9 years and to eternity considering the reruns will never ever stop! 5a576ea877d95553e73de8075ba0367e661a65384b3d1fc3a4c8af5f952bd436

So yeah, a lot of good comes out of nothing.

Just wait for that spark though. The spark is what makes the difference.

  1. This post is basically how my mind works most days of the week. I sit down to write and nothing comes out, but somehow eventually it does. The longer I sit in that uncomfortable space telling myself I have nothing, some little things start bubbling up, the words start stringing together and a sentence is formed. Of course that sentence usually turns into a paragraph and so on.

    I loved this post about nothing {and also kind of love Seinfeld!}

  2. Can so relate to this thinking. I almost always end up posting on my blog on a similar thought flow!! Randomly ruminate and end up with nothing!! ( I do like Seinfeld )
