Do you ever feel like your brain is fizzling out? Like an underworked muscle it just sits there and goes soft and gooey. I have been feeling that way for a long time and for a long time I have not been doing anything about it. I have to have an active brain so last week I did something about it. I joined a writer's group and this week I joined a book club. I wouldn't call myself a writer but I do write. I also love to read. I usually have 6- 8 books by my bedside. There two groups will force me to write one story a week and read at least one book a month. I know I am going to need much more stimulation so I will be buying at least one scientific magazine every month. (I already subscribe to National Geographic.)
I think of this as my brain going to the gym!

Yeah, I feel my brain getting mushy at times, I think it's middle aged mush. :)

Thanks for stopping by my site with kind word for my dog. You seem to be feeling better these days, finally starting to shake off the winter blaghs? I admire you for getting involved in the reading and writting clubs. It is so easy to be lazy. Way to go.

That's a perfect way to think about it - You're brain going to the gym.

Reading is great and relaxing and stimulating.

I hope it helps.

I absolutely adore National Geographic. It is one of my favorite Magazines. Which book club did you join? Is it online?
Do they read good books?

I was starting to get worried about you. I'm glad your getting involved in things. It always helps to be active. Mentally and physically.
