My Best Thinking Space


I guess you just never know when inspiration will strike!

My Best Thinking Space

It washes over me
Taking away the bad 
Getting rid of stress 
As I let it roll off of me
Idea droplets hit my head
My best thinking space
How I hate to let this time end
But sadly it has to be
Until we meet again tomorrow
My shower and I

  1. I often have my best ideas for teaching in the morning shower. Good to know I am not alone in my shower brainstorms.

  4. As I was reading I was thinking your private space was a shower. You inspire me to find ideas while I am in the shower.

  5. I love the image this evoked, "Idea droplets hit my head."

  6. I wonder what it is about a shower that spurs ideas? I also have lots of thinking time on the bike or walking, but of course there is no way to write them down so many evaporate by the time I have pen and paper.

  7. Cool idea! As I was reading, I guessed it was the shower. I, too, do some of my best thinking in the shower. I think it's because I can be free for those few minutes. Way to capture your best thinking space so well!

  8. "Idea droplets," I love! You may need a white board in there or something so the ideas don't wash away!

  9. Love those 'idea droplets', like Betsy. I had a student who said she wrote her best poetry in the shower, & used those little kids' bath crayons. Maybe it's time for you to get some, Robin! I don't take many showers, but oh the thoughts run wild in a hot, bubble bath! Thanks for the fun slice!
