Random Thoughts of Madness

There are times, often, when I don't know what to write. This is not because of a lack of subjects, or because of a lack of interest in writing. In fact, I think it might be due to quite the opposite--too many subjects. My mind gets overloaded with the thousands of random thoughts that travel through it each day, hour, minute and second. It is hard to reach out and grab hold of one of these thoughts, and to turn it into something profound through the creative act of writing. It is hard even to concentrate on one thought, to analyze it or to be conscious of it, without another competing thought coming along to make a case for itself. I have found, in the past, that brainstorming, or the act of writing down thoughts as they come to me, has helped to alleviate the mental pressure of thought overload. Thus, today's electronic blogging brainstorm:
