Today I left the left side of the brain on the stool. I left it there because all my life I've had it talking at me, for me and about me. What was happening in the past what is going to happen in the future. Rabbit. Rabbit. Rabbit. Rabbit... To procrastinate over and over and over and over and over and over again. God I'm sick of it. I want. I want my mind. I want my mind to expand. I want my mind to expand to a new neverland.
