Slow down, you move too fast
You got to make the morning last
Just kicking down the cobble stones
Looking for fun and feelin’ groovy
I found myself at the sea again today, sea-softened pebble stones under my feet. Immersing myself in the cool churning water it felt beautiful to just have space. The wind murmured ‘restore’ to me. The sun kissed my face.
My brain finds it terribly easy to run on warp speed. It’s kind of why psychosis crept up on me ten years ago. I often jump from one stream of thought to another, films and music intertwine, I get incredibly passionate about politics one minute and suddenly realise I’m in tears about the Kids in Crisis programme I watched last week.
I think social media is tricky for a brain like this. Especially Twitter. It’s been an interesting insight into how overworked my brain becomes now that I’m spending a month campaigning hard on social media. Sea swims and extended screen breaks are going to be really important. A period of more intense busyness makes me look forward to the gap year even more. Come July 29th I’ll be clicking an all important button – ‘delete’ on my Twitter account.
