Word weary

Bopping around the blogoshere lately, I've found my brain sort of glazing over. There seems to be a lot of intellectual discussion of history and academic works and definitions and blah blah blah.

I can see that other people are finding this very illuminating and "growthful" (or something) but I am finding that it feels distancing. I don't really want to read old quaker tracts. I want to know how spirit is moving now, today (so, maybe I should write about how it is moving in me? I wonder if it is?)

Am I just dense, or ADD or something?

You write: I want to know how spirit is moving now, today (so, maybe I should write about how it is moving in me?...)

Mmmmm, yum! I hope you'll help all of us by writing what you want to see more of. Maybe we just need to see an example of what might be lacking from the Quaker blogosphere.

Thanks for your observation.

:D Thee writes, maybe I've ADD,
Oh I hope so!
I've been blessed with ADHD. I think it is the root of so much of my joy. I have an awful theory, I am finding that most of the most important people in my life, my life long friends, have ADD... and I've noticed so many ADHD/ADD couples. The "opposite" attraction of not having the hyperactivity seems to balence in friendships where both are running on the same wonderful spinning of sinarios - the Joy of the misnomered AD etc.
If thee has ADD, revel in it. Our fellow Bloger, and old pal, Concientious Activist, over in England ( on weither ADHD is a mental illness or a genetic adaptation - shared by most entrapenuers... ) once said of me, as we joked about ADHD as mental illness, Lorcan does not suffer from mental illness, he revels in it.
Ah yes... yum,

PS One way to tell... when posting does thee read the word verification letters - try to sound them out, and then fight the impulse to use the word in a sentence in thy post? :D btorhmh ya do, yer one of us!

I'm not ADD but I'm Asperger's so I guess I can't help you if you're looking for input from normal minds. I call it my Reverse Polish Notation brain.

I have an uncle who's probably both Asperger's and ADHD. Endlessly entertaining! He builds ship models in excruciating detail, at record speed.

Normally, I'm all about the history but, yes, for once in my life I do want to know about the Today and Tomorrow of it all.
