Have you made the claim lately of being bored? Shame on you!
Boredom is not a word or feeling with which I am well-acquainted. My mind is a busy place, and quite often my daughters claim they think it must be a scary one as well. Ha ha.
I don't believe there should ever be an acceptance of the statement, "I'm b-o-o-o-r-e-d! There's nothing to do!"
Children, and adults as well, should have more that can occupy time and minds than at any time before.
If there is nothing to do with hands, there is creative thinking. There are books to read, radios, CD's, magazines, yes, even the Comics to look at, and understand, even if one can't read them.
It seems there are few who don't have access to modern media of some kind. There are always things to learn, new horizons to explore, minds to expand.
Call a shut-in you know, if you can't get out, and cheer them up. It'll cheer you up as well.
Write! For goodness sake, record ideas, memories, songs.
I know I'm preaching to the choir here, because most of you reading this are writers. (Smiley inserted here)
A mind is a terrible thing to waste! Hey, I think maybe I've heard that expression someplace before, haven't you?
