Black Hole Brain

Did you know a black hole is not an area of nothingness located in the vast reaches of outer space?  On the contrary, it is a celestial entity so densely packed with matter that the resultant gravitational field doesn’t even allow light to escape it.  The pull can be so strong, in fact, that it devours other stars and can significantly impact its heavenly neighborhood.

At the moment, my brain is a creative black hole; it has been soaking up information like a sponge, but the gravitational pull of all that swirling, spinning “matter” in my small skull won’t allow even one focused ray of an idea to escape.  The present lack of quality time available for writing only seems to intensify the severity of the condition.  It’s a maddening form of writer’s block and I wouldn’t wish it on my worst enemy.

In other words: Too many nebulous ideas + no time to sort them out = black hole brain = ME!

While I recover from this debilitating disease, please enjoy the links below.  They are some of my favorite finds from the last few weeks of surfing the Internet waves.  Let me know what you think of them.  And please, if you have any suggestions I should check out, add them in the comments.  At the moment I may be incapable of writing anything worthwhile, but my brain sucks up thoughtful blog posts and fun websites like Cygnus X-1 devouring extraterrestrial real estate.

  1. Thanks for the pingback. I have always been fascinated by black holes, but I surely don’t want to experience one in my brain! I hope you get the process reversed again.

    1. You’re welcome – I thought your post was great! You certainly don’t seem to be exhibiting any symptoms of black hole brain and I am making a slow but steady recovery.
