I don’t know if you are familiar with the song, “Hooked On A Feeling” by Blue Swede. Every time I hear this song I am hooked on the feeling I get from two of the lines and the music. The 2 lines being, I’m hooked on a feeling. I’m high on believing.” There is more to the second line, but I use my own words to finish it. Anyway, I am suddenly hooked on a feeling that I want to write. This unexpected desire to write is unusual for me. Since it’s my main creative endeavor, I find writing is more obligatory than pleasurable Although, I do occasionally have fun with it.
Now, here I am with the desire, but no subject matter. Tell me, did you ever get a feeling about something, but couldn’t quite define it? That’s where I am. I’m going to take a pause and consider where to go from here.
Okay. I’m back. Here’s the thing. Our brains actually have an aspect that is always in need to know mode. We want answers. We want to know the whys and wherefores. However, we may not always get those answers. My question then is, so what? What if we don’t know the whys and wherefores? Perhaps a little uncertainty now and then is not a bad thing. What if we just flow with the not knowing and see what happens? That’s what I came to, just enjoy being hooked on that feeling. If it leads somewhere that’s fine. If it doesn’t, that’s okay, too.
