A mind is a terrible thing... to have

Yes, the appropriate quote states: "A mind is a terrible thing to waste." But I think there might be something even worse than wasting it. Do you have any idea how many thoughts go through the human mind every second of every day? Neither do I but I'm guessing it's more than I want to know.(smile)

Oh there was a time when my mind was strong and fearless... or so I thought. Looking over the past has made me realize that maybe my life and all those thoughts were fractured. All the ups and down, like a carnival ride, oops, wrong story. Let me tell you about the "Witch and the Frog."

As a child I loved Saturday morning cartoons, specifically, "Fractured Fairy Tales". Those marvelous stories that always ended quite opposite of the 'expected' ending. So in this make-believe village there are too many witches and not enough people to cast spells on. So one witch sees a frog and turns him into a handsome prince. The frog-prince is miserable but cannot find the witch to turn him back into a frog. Meanwhile a lovely princess comes along, falls in love and they marry. Along comes another witch, thinking he's a handsome prince and changes him into, (wait for it), a frog! Of course there is no special kiss to change him, so his wife becomes a frog too. Blah-blah-blah and the rest is on YouTube.

Anyway I said all of that to say something I no longer remember... which proves my post... a mind is a terrible thing... to have.

Oh ~ The End ~


  1. Hi Dixie:

    I came over to your blog to see what is on your mind. Sometimes I don't even know what is on my mind. I can change my mind so easily and so many time.

    You know the Time-of-Sharing blog that I wanted to delete? Well is back up again but with a slight face lift for the soul purpose of scenic photos and nothing more.

    I have a new blog also. It is


  2. So 'a mind is a terrible thing.. to have', maybe but where would we be on Earth without it?

  3. There's nothing wrong with your mind Dixie; quite the opposite in fact!

  4. Hi Paul.
    I'm so glad to hear you've reopened the blog, and you've added a new one? Can't wait to visit.

    You have some really inspiring posts; the drawings are so vibrant and alive. Your gift of photography is really nice; I'd like to travel to some of those spots myself.

    Hope you & your family have a great week!

  5. Well, Mike,

    I'd be like the bees who travel through their day without a care. Or possibly an egret without regrets!! Or a squirrel traveling the world. Or a fish swimming in a dish who's only wish... is food & fresh water. (Help)

  6. Okay, Bazza... if you don't mind then I don't mind...(what?)

  7. I'm afraid my brain is my favorite toy.

  8. A mind is a terrible thing to waste. Especially with one that's as imaginative and talented as your own, Dixie.

  9. Dear Dixie,
    I think you have a great mind, although I think I do get your point about it sometimes being a "terrible thing to have". As you know I've had my own experiences of having my brain go funny on me, so I can empathise. But consider this: if a person didn't have a mind in the first place, he/she wouldn't have a mind to lose. I hope that makes at least some sense to you, Dixie!
    Very Best Wishes, your way,

  10. Cheerful Monk! great post; thanks for sharing that. So there is potential after all?!!

  11. Kelly, that's really nice of you to, write. (Shh, the check's in the mail, lol.)
    Take care.

  12. Thanks David; all well and good that you can empathise! I did lose my mind many years ago, and I think I got the wrong one back... you know... abby, abby, abi-normal....??
    Loved your newest post!!

  13. And yet you have proven, that your mind is a wonderful thing to share.
    Remember you are a princess and the magic of your mind can take you to really enchanting places.
    Anyway, I have no idea what I'm doing and I forgot what I was trying to say. 'Mind' how you go :)
    Have a lovely weekend, Dixie.
    Your starstruck fan, Gary!
