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!
