I have great ideas and thoughts while driving around town in my big white van. I've composed many a blog ideas. I've thought up great books and stories. While driving, I've solved all of our family problems, solved world peace and thought up the solution to end hunger. I think up all these things while driving.
The problem is, once I get home, all these thoughts and ideas are thrown out the window. I walk into the house and usually the first thing I hear is one of my younger children say, "I'm hungry. I want a peanut butter sandwich." Real life returns.
I get frustrated because I' completely forget about all those fantastic ideas I came up with. Things I wanted to look up on the computer, ways to market my book, ideas for my theater, and important paper I need to sign, call this person... all those great ideas and reminders of things I need to do - GONE!
I need one of those hand held voice recorder gadgets. Then I could drive, think, solve the mysteries of the universe and record my thoughts for later.
